In Madison, WI and elsewhere, acne breakouts are common for teenagers and adults. If you have acne and have tried all of the creams, lotions and pills to no effect, laser acne treatment may be your best option. It is highly effective at treating recurring breakouts, as well as scars and hyperpigmentation.
There are a number of benefits of choosing laser acne treatment over other traditional treatments. Laser treatments can be done in our office in Madison, WI usually in less than half an hour. It may take a series of laser sessions to get the desired outcome. If it is a serious case of acne, more sessions may be needed to achieve the desired result. When compared to other treatments, the time needed for laser treatment is short.
The reason laser therapy works is because unlike creams, laser therapy is able to reach the bacteria deep in the skin that cause the acne. By penetrating the layers of the skin, it kills the bacteria, greatly reducing the possibility of future breakouts.
One of the major causes of acne is an overactive sebaceous gland. The sebaceous gland produces the oil that protects the hair and skin, but when it produces too much oil, problems can occur. Acne happens when the skin pores become filled with this excess oil and combine with dead skin cells and bacteria. Laser therapy may damage the sebaceous gland slightly, which has the positive benefit of causing it to produce less oil, and thereby reduce breakouts.
If you already have scars from acne, laser treatment may greatly reduce the appearance of the scars or other irregularities in the skin, as well as improve the smoothness of your skin. Because laser treatment is not a surgical procedure, there is very little time needed for recovery, if any.
Laser therapy in Madison, WI can also be used for a number of other skin conditions, such as unwanted wrinkles, age spots and skin discoloration. As for treating acne, no other option can compare. It has proven to be the most effective method available and its efficiency clearly sets it apart from other treatments.
