by Kelvin Redfield on August 11, 2011

Laser acne treatment technology had been around for many years, and it is quickly replacing many traditional acne treatment methods. I bet that everyone, especially acne sufferers may at least hear this in their lifetime. So, what is a laser acne treatment? What does it do? How does it help in acne treatment?

Before I go in-depth of this laser technology, there is something that you guys should know. In the past, many people were using antibiotics to cure their acne problems, and it works extremely well. However, the antibiotics effectiveness decreases when you are overuse it. Over time, it will become completely ineffective. And this is the reason why many people are opting for the laser acne treatment.

During the laser acne treatment, the doctor will holds a laser pen just above the acne area or acne scar tissue. Once the doctor knows which acne that he needs to get rid, he will waves the concentrated beam of light back and forth. This will vaporize the unwanted tissue, and at the same time, it will create a new surface for your skin growth. The amazing part is that new collagen will be formed after the laser treatment. Collagen basically is a beneficial protein in the skin’s connective tissue that gives the skin its texture. Laser resurfacing is another term for laser acne treatment.

Although the laser resurfacing is safe and painless, one may experience some post-procedural bruising and swelling. By all means, it is normal. These side-effects usually will go away after seven to ten days. If you are female, it is advisable for you to wait until it passes before you applying any make-up.

Before you are going for laser acne treatment, you need to be sure that this treatment is done by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. It is important as there are many types of laser and each of them serve a different purpose. If you are not aware, currently there are no federal restrictions on who can perform laser resurfacing. In other word, everyone can perform laser treatment. So, make sure you ask your doctor where he was trained to use the laser equipment, and is those laser equipment belongs to him or her? Also, try to find out how many different type of lasers your doctor owns and how often is these pieces are used.

As for the price, the laser resurfacing usually cost around $2500 for full face and around $1000 for specific acne removal or other types of scar on your face. For your safety, it is wise for you to consult with your dermatologist or laser surgeon and this will help to determine what work the best for your skin. Many doctors believed that laser resurfacing is not meant for people who with dark skin as it alters the color of skin too dramatically, but then, people believe that in the hand of an experienced surgeon, people with darker skin can actually benefit from it, as well.

For those who suffered from severe acne treatment and want to get rid of them quickly, laser acne treatment is your best bet, provided that you are willingly to spend thousands of dollars. It is safe, effective and fast. If you don’t have enough money, consider doing some saving now, and I can guarantee that you will not regret with it.
