Could laser treatment for acne be the right gift to give yourself this holiday season? Here’s what you need to know about this revolutionary anti-acne treatment option.
How laser therapy works on acne
Acne problems on the surface of your skin stem from harmful bacteria. Factors like skin oiliness can matter, as well. But, the ability of laser therapy to target and destroy bacteria is what puts this treatment option above other topical anti-acne products like washes or ointments.
Laser therapy offers Dr. Sanderson and the team at Lasercare Skin Clinic an effective, non-invasive way to clear away bacteria from your skin, helping to resolve current acne break-outs rapidly. Laser treatment also reduces the frequency and intensity of future acne outbreaks.
You don’t need to worry about laser treatment harming your skin. The laser sweeps the outer layer of your skin and reaches into the deeper layers of your dermis.
Laser therapy for acne can reduce skin oil production and eliminate harmful bacteria. Laser heat stimulation can even increase your natural production of collagen, evening out your skin texture and filling in acne-related scarring or pockmarks.
Perfecting your skin this holiday season
Talk to Dr. Sanderson and the aesthetics experts at Lasercare Skin Clinic about your skincare and appearance-related goals for this holiday season. We let you know if your acne can be resolved with laser treatment or other treatments and therapies. For best results, you may need multiple laser treatment sessions spaced apart to give your skin a break between procedures.
While acne laser treatment doesn’t burn your skin, you may observe some slight redness or tenderness in the treatment area for a day or two after your treatment session. Stay out of the sun and skip harsh chemical exposure or products as these mild side effects fade, and consider scheduling your session a few days before a big event.
