  PLANNING TO GET AN ACNE LASER TREATMENT - by Editor
Laser treatments help get rid of pimples, scars and blemishes. Read on to know more about laser treatments.


As a teenager Riya suffered from a severe acne problem. As years passed her pimples got cured but left behind scars on her face. The blemishes on her face make her feel awkward at social gatherings, even today. Her mother is constantly worried; trying to find a groom for her but so far has been unlucky. Riya is thinking over to get a laser treatment but she wonders if it will work and will it be worth the expenses.

Many like Riya are totally unaware about laser treatments. They have questions, doubts and are unclear about its effects. It is important to understand laser treatment to know the pros and cons. To get rid of acne and scars is not easy. Laser therapy could be one of the effective solutions to fix the problem of recurring pimples and blemishes. A little understanding could help get great results.


What is laser treatment?

Laser Treatment is a process that uses a strong beam of light to cure skin problems. Laser means Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers are now being used across industries and can be helpful for treating skin too. The treatment uses a V beam and a Cool touch laser. The V Beam produces a laser light that is absorbed by the red pigment in skin. The V beam reduces scars with the heat and the cool touch laser tightens skin from inside out. The treatment closes pores reducing sebum production and lessening acne production.

Experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists can cure many ailments with this new technology. Though the procedure is expensive, it is effective and accurate. Laser treatment deals with skin problems like, unwanted hair removal, acne problems and tattoo removal.


Laser treatment for acne

Acne and scar removal treatments are relatively painless. A laser treatment to cure acne should be carried out under the supervision of qualified physicians and medical staff. In acne removal treatment, acne producing germs are killed with the use of radiations and the growth of the oil-producing glands is shrunk.

Laser resurfacing helps cure not only acne but also wrinkles, skin burns, blemishes, scars and other such conditions. To get rid of scar the damaged skin tissue is removed and collagen fiber is tightened to give desired effect.

Laser lights close the sebaceous glands thus barring the over production of sebum which leads to acne. Proper care of the skin is taken during the process with the help of cooling sprays.

One can fight acne on body parts other than face, no matter how acute it is or where it is.


Cosmetic laser resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is the popular cosmetic procedure that helps to cure skin disorders. This treatment minimises the effects of the sun and ageing on the skin. Cosmetic laser treatment gives rejuvenated skin within few sessions.

It usually makes use of a combination of carbon dioxide and an Erbium laser. This combination resurfaces the skin reducing the blemishes and scars. Farlex lasers are also commonly used in laser treatments. Do not panic if you are not witnessing the desired result after the completion of the treatment. It may take several months to show the complete result of the laser therapy.

Laser treatment for acne lasts for 15-20 minutes each session. The number of sessions required depends upon your skin type and severity of problem. Normally eight to fifteen sessions may be required to cure the recurring acne but it is not a rule. Usually there is a gap of few days or even a week between successive sessions.


Laser tattoo removal

Laser radiations can even remove a permanent tattoo. In the laser tattoo removal treatment intense rays are passed without any harm through the skin. These rays are absorbed by the pigments of the tattoo. The broken pigments of the tattoo are then detached from your skin and carried away when your system gets rid of dead cells.


Benefits of laser treatment

Laser treatment is considered as highly effective to cure acne. A good laser treatment is performed under the supervision of experienced dermatologists, with proper care. Once the sessions are over it requires minimal time to recover. The benefits of the laser therapy are long lasting. Laser therapy rids an individual from taking daily medication and applying ointments. Laser therapy has lesser side effects as compared to other healing treatments. It is a myth that laser therapy is a painful process to cure acne problems.


Side effects of laser treatment

One can come across several side effects of acne blemish laser treatment such as redness, irritation and swelling of the affected areas. These side effects will last hardly for few hours or a day. In some cases a laser treatment to cure pimple scars could lead to the pigmentation changes.

Follow safety rules for laser treatments

Before opting for laser treatment it is better to take some precautions. It is important to follow all safety standards while dealing with laser treatments.

  • Get complete knowledge of the treatment you need
  • Take feedback from people who have got laser treatments done before
  • Communicate with your doctor and clear doubts about the treatment
  • Follow the instructions of your dermatologist

Other than treating acne, laser treatment can be used for skin tightening, skin rejuvenation, hair removal, eye treatments and tattoo removal. Laser therapies are gaining popularity among the masses due to its miraculous and quick effects. If you have been fighting and living with acne scars for a long time, give some thought to laser treatment.

Comments:   I really used to get upset with my unwanted hair growth. I hated that hair on my upper lips and wanted to get rid of it. I decided to go for a laser therapy. Laser therapy does work. It took almost a year to complete my treatment. I had to undergo five sessions and two touchup sessions. I started noticing difference from the day one. In the video here the lady describes the pain as ‘rubber band snapping’ but it is more than that. I felt like needles are piercing my skin. But do not panic, one can handle that pain easily. On my first sitting I did not feel much pain but on every next setting the level of pain increased somewhat. My cousin sister too opted for laser treatment and she did not experience much pain. If you are disturbed with acne or unwanted hair, laser treatment is worth choosing.

Comments:   I wanted to take laser treatment for my scars. I have suffered lot of embarrassment when my pimples left behind the scars. I enquired about laser treatment but I found that it is very expensive and one need to tolerate more than four sessions and pain. I have heard good feedbacks from my friends who had done laser treatment. I am too confused again whether to go for it or not. What if I did not get desired effect? Then all money I spent would be wasted. Though most of my friends and an expert whom I consulted have assured me a positive result, I am sure. May be I need to find out more information on laser treatment. This piece of article is useful.
