Laser treatment for acne can effectively treat the condition and even reduce active acne and boils with immediate results and also resolve acne scarring.

Although this is often a problem for teenagers it is a problem by no means limited to this age group and many people will experience acne in their later years. Hormones can also play an active role in the exacerbation so acne. 

Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands*  produce too much sebum. The excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and both substances form a plug in the follicle.If the plugged follicle is close to the surface of the skin, it bulges outwards, creating a whitehead. Alternatively, the plugged follicle can be open to the skin, creating a blackhead.

*Sebaceous glands are tiny glands found near the surface of your skin which are attached to hair follicles, sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum.

How it works:

For active acne

Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects. Fotona’s high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. 

In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne. 

Gentle & Effective Acne Scar Revision 

For treating problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe and simple procedure.

Expected Results:

Patients will notice an immediate reduction in their active acne as well as the redness often associated with the inflammation of acne. Acne will be less active and the skin better quality after treatment. 

There will also be a noticeable difference in skin texture and tone.
