Lazer For Acne

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys I need help!! I have moderate cystic acne with paustles with top white half whiteheads and blackheads but a lot of my acne is flat and just very red and inflammed I have tried all antibiotics and tropical treatments but nothing works!! So I was thinking I really don't wanna do the accutane or pill route cause even if I did accutane I probs would just do it on 20mg for 2months so doubt it will be effective therefore I'm really looking into lazer treatment for my active acne what do you think any experiences also what kind of lazer is best to combact the acne I have it is very red and inflammed any help will be greatly appreciated

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

Lasers are typically better for acne scarring and collagen loss. However there are some lasers available that do kill acne bacteria, namely Pulsed Dye and Q-switched laser treatments. The Smoothbeam laser is perhaps the most common one to treat acne but primarily targets sebaceous glands and can also fix acne scarring. Light treatments, particularly blue light, kills acne bacteria and is often combined with other laser and light treatments.

Lasers work by injuring the skin with a controlled, high intensity heat. This injury causes the skin to go into "overdrive", producing more collagen (and other proteins) than it normally would to fix the damage. If done at the right settings, the result is smoother, more even-toned and younger looking skin. Ablative lasers like carbon dioxide work by removing the top layer of skin; non-ablative lasers just "damage" the underlying layers of skin. Ablative lasers are better for wrinkling and facial tightening in older populations, while non-ablative lasers can be better for some acne scars.
