LASER ACNE TREATMENT
Laser Acne Treatment available at Azia Medical Spa in Birmingham, Alabama.
CLEAR UP & TREAT DIFFICULT ACNE
Azia Medical Spa uses a laser or a laser-like device called intense pulsed light (IPL). Our IPL laser is used directly on the skin to reduce oil gland activity and bacterial counts, both of which improve acne. Facial scarring that result from acne is best treated with fractional laser resurfacing, which is also available at Azia.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS LASER ACNE TREATMENT?
Laser Acne Treatment employs laser or IPL light energy to shrink the sebaceous glands beneath the skin or to reduce bacterial counts.
Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands in the skin. The sebaceous glands release sebum (oil), which can clog the pores, leaving the sebum trapped beneath the skin. The resulting black and white heads (comedones) may cause the bacterium Propronibacterium acnes (P. acnes) to flourish, which can cause inflammation, pustules and nodules in the skin.
IS A LASER ACNE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Most patients experience minimal discomfort during a Laser Acne Treatment.
HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL LASER ACNE TREATMENT?
Acne Laser Treatment time varies based upon the areas being treated. A series of treatments is required for optimal results.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF LASER ACNE TREATMENT?
Laser Acne Treatment has mild side effects. Depending on the types of treatment utilized patients may experience slight skin discoloration and minor swelling. Downtime is minimal after IPL treatment and most patients resume normal activities immediately.
