Laser Acne Treatment

Acne Vulgaris

Acne is a condition characterised by obstructed sebaceous glands, pimples, and sometimes deeper cysts or nodules that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Acne begins in adolescence and usually affects most teenagers at some time. However, adults too, can suffer with acne. When severe, acne can often result in scarring.

Even less severe cases can lead to scarring, if not properly treated. The most common form of acne is called acne vulgaris and is characterised by inflammatory lesions (pimples) that develop when sebaceous glands become obstructed and there is an abnormal proliferation of propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes bacteria).

Until recently, patients with persistent, moderate acne have been treated with only topical or sometimes systemic antibiotics. Recent studies have demonstrated however that certain discrete laser spectra can trigger endogenic porphyrins that naturally destroy P. acnes bacteria. And in just a fraction of the time it typically takes for antibiotics to work!

Active Acne

We have lasers to treat both active acne and the scarring and pigmentation which can be left after spots. Acne is a spectrum ranging from mild – with whiteheads and blackheads, through moderate, with pustules and papules, through to severe acne, with nodules and cysts under the skin.

Alma ClearSkin

Alma ClearSkin uses the non-ablative Erbium: Glass 1540 nm laser, which deeply penetrates the skin, causing thermal damage to the sebaceous glands, destroying the bacteria which causes most cases of acne. It reduces sebum production while leaving the epidermis intact. Contact cooling protects the skin, reducing pain and allowing  for safer and  more effective treatment of the sebaceous glands within the dermis.  It gives significant improvement in active acne with little down-time or side-effects.  It addresses all forms of acne vulgaris including  papules, pustules and nodules, while also achieving a gentle rejuvenating effect, diminishing the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen renewal. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, has no side effects and achieves a smoother complexion with lasting results.
