Our medical grade, gold standard laser and our extensively trained clinician together help you to achieve your desired results. With the experience we have, the laser will be programmed specifically for you to ensure a safe treatment with the best possible results.
How the treatment works
The light that emits from the laser head which
targets the p acnes bacteria in the skin. A photo-dynamic reaction occurs, which preforms a selective destruction of the p acnes themselves. With successive treatments the rate of acne destruction can become greater than the growth of the bacteria leading to a reduction in the inflamed lesions and can prevent further traumatic scarring.The laser treatment also works in a way that the light is also absorbed into the blood vessels which supply the sebaceous glands. By heating up the capillaries this will reduce the blood flow to the sebaceous glands and decrease the over-production of oil in the skin.
Prior and during acne removal sessions it is advised to frequently use a light abrasive exfoliation scrub on the area. It is best advised to under go 4 treatments, once every 3 weeks, and this routine can be repeated if necessary and maintenance treatments may be needed in the future to maintain the skin.
