What is acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people at
some point during their lives. It is a complex and continuous
cycle that can be caused by many factors, resulting in a
hormonal fluctuation that stimulates oil production. It is most
common in adolescents but can be experienced at any age
and range from mild to severe. Too often, people squeeze
spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance.
Unfortunately, the habit can increase inflammation and, in
extreme cases, lead to permanent scars.
What can laser treatment do to help my acne?
Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through
photoselective absorption and controlled heating. The laser
safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to
thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.
In addition, the treatment accelerates the healing process and
stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-
term treatment of acne.
What if I have acne scars?
Fotona’s laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and
effectively penetrates the skin for gentle resurfacing of acne-
scarred skin, helping to improve your skins texture and tone.
Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing
allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the
practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the
acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Each person is different but during the treatment, you can
expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following
treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling that
will diminish after a few hours. Most patients can resume their
daily activities immediately following the treatment. It is best
to avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and to
apply sun screen.
