Laser Acne Treatment

Laser Acne Treatment
Laser acne treatment has become more popular over the years.  It is performed in salons, medical spas, and they tend to have different types to some degree.  But they claim that the laser kills bacteria without causing side effects.  They talk about laser treatment even reducing things like acne scars, and many participants in beauty schools have been known to test it on themselves.

So is there any truth to this?  Well obviously lasers come with quite a bit of targeted heat.  This heat does kill off bacteria, and they say that the heat stimulates regeneration of skin cells, collagen, and elastin. 

It has been effective in some cases, and they’ve used it for complete resurfacing to treat both severe cases of acne as well as wrinkles, acne scars, etc.  So obviously speaking, it isn’t completely out in the woods.  However, the question is, is it worth it?

You can expect to pay hundreds of dollars for even one treatment.  You can expect the skin to regenerate and heal itself.  However, the problem is that you can also expect side effects.  When done wrong, some have reported scarring actually getting worse.  And of course, many go to the wrong practitioner because it’s cheaper.

But even if you go to the right practitioner, skin will be sensitive to pain, more sensitive to sunlight and potential future damage, redness, irritation, peeling, and other problems that many don’t actually enjoy.  The results are by no means immediate, and it takes a few weeks to recover and therefore to really see results.  So obviously speaking, it is something to consider very carefully before you really use it.
