Laser Therapy and Acne Laser Treatments
Acne scars seem more like a case of misery for those suffering from acne than a simple problem that needs to be treated. They are constantly searching for a real solution that oftentimes leads them into the caring arms of a specialist who will most probably eliminate the scar with painful procedures such as excision, dermabrasion, punch grafts, or chemical peels to remove acne scars. However, the more traditional treatments for acne are unlike acne laser treatments in that they will usually give different results in different people.
Acne laser therapy is an exciting new treatment that has recently added tools for acne treatment. Tools such as pulsed laser technology, dye technology and carbon dioxide laser vaporization offer new hope to acne scar victims. All of these additions to acne laser therapy are aimed towards improving technology. However, what happens after the scar is gone?
The appearance of scars are treated with the application of carbon dioxide laser vaporization and dye technology. Nonetheless, for the scar to be effectively removed doctors recommend you come in for a pre screening to categorize the type of acne scar.
Six to eight weeks after the acne laser therapy you should be examined again. This will allow the doctor to decide if a second intervention is required. If all goes well, then you will need to find treatments for acne that will prevent the appearance of acne and acne scars.
Acne breakouts are first and foremost caused by injuries to the cells lining the sebum canals through which sebum outflows to the surface of the skin. In other words, injuries are produced by a strong and sudden outflow of sebum to the surface from within the hair follicles, a condition mostly caused by hormonal imbalances. When this happens our immune system reacts to injury with inflammation or an inflammatory response. This is a natural reaction that lets you know that something is wrong and that you need to take action. However, when this inflammatory response appears most people overact and reach for a chemical rich product that can destroy skin cells and skin structures. This is problematic because it leads to a whole new slew of scarring problems such as ice pick scars, rolling scars, and boxcar scars.
The best solution is a natural acne treatment that is gentle on the skin and capable of aiding the immune system in its fight for recovering healthy skin. You cannot entrust the health and recuperation of your skin to an OTC that has nothing more to offer than chemical laced products, you need a real natural solution.
In general, the market for acne treatments is on the fast track offering blue light acne therapy; however, you cannot depend solely on this type of treatment to prevent acne scarring nor can you depend on harsh acne medicines to treat all your acne concerns. Keep in mind that scar removal is only part of a more complex acne treatment, so choose your tools wisely.
