Ordinarily, the first signs of acne appear in one’s teenage years but adults are also known to suffer from chronic acne or teenage acne scars. Acne is a result of skin pores being blocked by dirt, oil, acne-causing bacteria, and dead skin cells.
The sebaceous glands play a major role in acne. Sebaceous glands produce sebum or natural oil that keeps the skin soft and moisturized. If one’s body produces excessive amounts of sebum, they are likely to get acne as the skin’s pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, dirt, and impurities.
In almost all cases, acne leaves the skin with craters or scarring. Any active acne along with scarring from previous breakouts can leave a person feeling self conscious. Enter, Clearskin Laser, the treatment that has passed the test of time.
Clearskin Laser is a treatment that combines a non-ablative laser with vacuum and contact cooling to fight acne scars. Before jumping on to the benefits of this treatment, let us understand its components and how it works.
What is a non-ablative laser?
Non-ablative laser uses laser technology to treat the skin without harming the surrounding tissues. It penetrates deep into the layers of skin and creates a uniform, thermal environment without causing any damage to the epidermis – the topmost layer of skin.
How does Clearskin Laser work?
Equipped with Erbium Glass Fibre laser, Clearskin laser is able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and attack acne causing bacteria. Simultaneously, the laser generates heat in the dermis which arrests the production of excessive sebum which is responsible for blocking hair follicles resulting in acne and spots. The vacuum component of the Clearskin Laser treatment gently extracts the blockages and dirt keeping the skin’s protective oils intact.
Clearskin Laser is precisely controlled to target the acne producing bacteria deep under the skin’s surface through microscopic light beams. These microscopic light beams are at a wavelength that heat up the skin tissue but do not ablate its water content. This heating of the skin tissue creates a false injury in the target area and activates the body’s healing response leading to an increase in the production of collagen, blood circulation, and all around skin-renewal.
Besides treating acne scars, Clearskin also works on reducing age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. As it kickstarts the production of collagen, the effects of Clearskin Laser are long lasting.
Clearskin Laser requires almost no downtime. Clients have experienced minimal redness or swelling in the targeted areas but these are temporary side effects known to minimize within the same day.
In addition to Clearskin Laser, acne and acne scarring can immensely benefit from Dermlux LED therapy, an innovative solution for troubled skin.
