Acne is a common and bothersome
problem that most people experience. Many young adults have trouble
controlling acne and take antibiotics and/or medications. Inflammatory
acne often requires the chronic use of antibiotics by mouth. Laser Acne
treatment can usually lead to a lessening of the amount of required
antibiotics. Laser treatment can improve not only the inflamed acne, but
also leads to improvement in acne scars.
There are 3 basic groups of acne
treating lasers, Nonabrasive Lasers, Erbium (ER) Lasers and
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Lasers. One group of Lasers inhibits the growth
of the bacteria that is involved in acne lesions. The other group of
lasers shrinks the sebaceous oil glands that play a major role in acne.
