Why Other Acne Treatments Don’t Work – Benefits of Laser Acne Near You

Acne is not a new skin condition, but using lasers to treat it is a modern and extremely effective solution. For any acne treatment to work, it must target the cause of your acne. This skin condition is a result of excess oil production in the skin and inflammation.

Resistant and cystic acne frequently fail to respond to traditional over-the-counter measures of control. Laser acne treatment works even better than oral antibiotics and topical lotions.

Three Treatment Mechanism’s for Acne Removal

Younique Cosmetic Surgery uses Blue Light Levulan acne treatment. This involves three mechanisms of action against acne:

  1. Levulan treatment deactivates the bacteria that triggers acne
  2. Levulan treatment removes the topmost layer of skin to unclog pores
  3. Levulan treatment shuts down the sebaceous glands in the skin

This is exciting because sebaceous glands are the root cause in the formation of acne, so it has a long-lasting effect, even on severe acne!

Side Effects from Treatment

While side effects from laser acne treatment are uncommon, you may get redness of skin that will last a week at most, during which time you should do no exercise for recovery purposes. You may also encounter skin discoloration, which can make your skin either lighter or darker. Depending on the person, you may encounter a slightly more severe pain, which will fade over a short period of time after your laser acne treatment.
