How Does Laser Acne Treatment Work?
Acne is a disorder of the skin follicles which gives an excess of oil in the skin and this often becomes infected with a bacteria called P.Acnes. Your body responds by trying to remove the infection and the bacteria. The result is lots of inflammation in the follicle and unfortunately, a big, red ugly spot. At Freedomhealth we have developed a sophisticated approach to troublesome acne using our specialised Sciton laser. Using the Broad Band Light platform on the Sciton Laser, Lee Garrett will heal those deep dark coloured marks that the bigger spots leave. The BBL device gently and painlessly heats the top layers of the skin over and around the acne damage. This has the effect of killing off the P.Acnes bacteria, reduces the redness and allows collagen to remodel and calm the over-active sebaceous glands, reducing the oil production. How can you treat acne scarring? Either as an alternative or as a later treatment, Lee Garrett will use the Profractional laser to remodel the top layers
