Certain methods of acne treatment may provide some temporary relief, but light laser facials can go deeper into your skin for longer-lasting results. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, light laser treatments may have better results when they are used in conjunction with other treatments. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
The process uses laser light waves to target the bacteria that are naturally on your face. When the bacteria combine with sebum, the natural skin oil and dead skin cells clogs the pore and becomes infected. The infection may take several forms starting with blackheads that are black because they are open and exposed to the air and whiteheads that are white because they are still sealed closed. The laser destroys the bacteria, thereby preventing future breakouts as well as helping to remove current ones.
Light laser treatment for acne has an added benefit. It also reduces or removes dark pigmentation and superficial scars. Light laser treatment can be combined with other treatments that will help minimize the appearance of old acne scars and promote the production of new collagen that gives the skin a fresh, clear appearance.
