Why Do You Need Laser Treatment
For Acne Scars & Hyperpigmented Spots?

Skin products (serums, gels, creams, etc.) as well as antibiotics, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels are not enough to eradicate acne pimples and its complications in the form of acne scars & acne hyperpigmented spots.

Accutane (Isotretinoin) or Roaccutane gives dramatic acne-clearing results in most cases; however, it's advisable to avoid this dreadful medication due to its multiple serious side effects.

The right laser treatment combined with the right use of properly chosen plant-based medico-aesthetic products and phytotherapeutic oral medications is the ideal choice for effectively combatting this widespread skin disease.

Skin Products Cannot Eradicate Acne

Skin products, like creams, gels, ointments and serums have proved to be ineffective in eradicating acne due to their limited penetration into the skin.  This is the reason that has triggered the search for alternative treatment methods, such as various laser, microneedling & radiofrequency treatments that could reach the deeper skin layers where the acne pathological processes are taking place.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a superficial treatment, which is not of adequate help in the case of acne

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells known as stratum corneum.  Hence, microdermabrasion buffs and polishes the superficial skin surface using a stream of fine crystals or a diamond tip. It does not reach the lower parts of the epidermis and the deeper found dermal layer of the skin where acne disease elements actually develop, hence not making it a treatment of choice.

Antibiotics

Antibiotics are ineffective in controlling or eradicating acne

Antibiotics have proved to be ineffective in controlling or eradicating acne. Acne patients are often wrongly recommended to take antibiotics over long time periods - from a few months to a few years. Such long term intakes of antibiotics give serious side effects to patients. Yet the problem of acne remains unsolved. 

Antibiotics may decrease acne, yet as soon as one stops taking them, acne outbreaks intensify once again.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels bring partial relief to acne manifestations but cannot eliminate them.

Chemical peels may give you temporary results in acne treatment, especially in genetically determined cases.

Chemical peels might themselves become the cause of scars by literally popping your freaking pimples and get all the cumulated sebum out and popping leads to scarring.

After chemical peeling the skin becomes more photo-sensitive, i.e. it will tend to turn darker quickly on exposure to sunlight. So, it's better to use a high SPF sunscreen and stay away from sunlight.

Accutane (Isotretinoin)

Accutane (Isotretinoin) or Roaccutane may give dramatic acne-clearing results; however, it's strongly advised to avoid this dangerous medication because of its multiple serious side effects.

Accutane (isotretinoin) or Roaccutane  was discovered in 1979 when it was first given to patients with severe acne, most of whom reacted with dramatic and permanent clearing of their acne symptoms. Accutane is a vitamin A derivative (13-cis-retinoic acid) administered orally in pill form with a meal containing an adequate amount of fat, normally for 15-20 weeks (3.5-4.5 months), although it is also sometimes prescribed at lower dosages for up to six (6) months or longer. It was originally recommended to people with severe acne that did not respond to other treatments, but has gained in popularity in the past 25 years and is prescribed more and more frequently for less severe acne. This practice is controversial because Accutane is a systemic medication that affects every bodily system and can cause lifelong side effects to the user. Accutane need not be paired with other medications.

Exactly how Accutane works on a cellular level is unknown but we do know that it affects four ways that acne develops.

  1. It dramatically reduces the size of the skin's oil glands (35%-58%) and even more dramatically reduces the amount of oil these glands produce (around 80%).

  2. Acne bacteria (P. acnes) live in skin oil. Since oil is dramatically reduced, so is the amount of acne bacteria in the skin.

  3. It slows down how fast the skin produces skin cells inside the pore, which helps pores from becoming clogged in the first place.

  4. It has anti-inflammatory properties.

Laser Medicine has laid the foundation
towards the successful treatment of acne vulgaris and its complications -
acne scars & acne hyperpigmented spots.

Lasers have been intensively developed during the last 5 decades in order to find proper treatments for various health problems.

For the treatment of acne and its complications, such as acne scars and acne hyperpigmented spots, the following treatment methods are the most effective ones known today:

  1. Pixel CO2 Laser Treatment - Alma Lasers.

  2. iPixel Erbium YAG Laser Treatment - Alma Lasers.

  3. Clear Skin Erbium Glass Laser Treatment - Alma Lasers.

A non-laser treatment that has shown itself to be effective is the use of microneedles with radiofrequency. This method is known as Micro-Needling with Fractional Radio-Frequency (MFRF) Treatment.

Pixel CO2 Laser Treatment Of Acne Scars & Acne Hyperpigmented Spots

Pixel CO2 Laser Treatment is actually one of the most advanced treatment methods of acne lesions.

You start getting results as from your first treatment session and your skin continues its regenerative and repairing process till your next session of treatment in a month time. Final results are usually reached after following a treatment course consisting of around seven (7) to ten (10) sessions in general, though some resistant or advanced cases may need even more treatment sessions.

Treating yourself to have a smooth and healthy skin without scars is how you should visualize your laser treatment. Removing your acne scars with Fractional Laser Treatment will at the same time help you attenuate your acne hyperpigmented spots.

Some of the latest high tech medical advances in aesthetic dermatology are due to the applications of Fractional Lasers, which give the best results in the hands of medical specialists well trained in laser medicine.
