Acne

What is it?

Acne is a condition caused by skin cells that do not shed properly and plug pores, causing oil and bacteria to be trapped inside. As the oil and bacteria accumulates, the skin becomes inflamed and swells outward forming the familiar whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. The most common type of acne shows up on the face, neck, shoulders, back, and chest.

How is it treated?

Using Laserscope's FDA-cleared green laser, light is delivered through the skin's surface triggering the body's natural bacteria-fighting defenses. These defenses kill the problem-causing bacteria, significantly reducing the severity of current and future breakouts. A second wavelength, 1064 Yag, is used to stimulate collagen growth helping to decrease acne scars as well as shrink oil glands. While outcomes vary from person to person a prospective clinical study indicates that over 90% of patients treated experience marked reduction in acne lesions.
