Acne Scarring & Rosacea
What Is Acne Scarring/Acne Rosacea
Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Rosacea is a skin condition that affects parts of your face. Symptoms can include facial flushing, facial redness, spots, thickening of your skin, and eye problems such as dry eyes and sore eyelids. Not all symptoms occur in all cases.
How it Works?
The primary effects of laser light in skin resurfacing are photothermal, heating a particular substance in the skin. The process of using laser to remove blemishes in the skin is known as photothermolysis, the breakdown of selected tissues in the skin. The process generally uses light to target bacteria, that combined with an excess of sebum, cause acne breakouts. It destroys the most common acne causing bacteria, preventing future breakouts, and helping to eliminate current ones.
How many treatments will i need?
We recommend 6 treatments and touch-ups every few months to effectively pull deep pigmentation, unwanted superficial scarring, and to rebalance acne prone skin. The touch-ups will keep your complexion glowing, collagen stimulated, and acne at bay.
What Are Age Spots?
Age spots are flat brown, grey, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas of the skin. Age spots are also called liver spots, senile lentigo, solar lentigines, or sun spots.
How Does Laser Remove Age Spots?
The laser uses a powerful beam of green that shines through the outer layer of the skin. The brown pigment absorbs the light energy and gets very hot for a fraction of a second. This is enough to break up the pigment. It is usual to allow at least two months between treatments for the damaged pigment to be absorbed and the skin to recover.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
After your laser treatment your age spots will fade gradually over several weeks. 2 or 3 treatments may be required for maximum fading. Age spots sometimes come back after a few years and need further laser treatment. Your skin will need to be looked after carefully for one or two weeks after each appointment.
