Understanding acne
Acne results from the obstruction and inflammation of the sebaceous glands, and it affects 80% of the human population. Acne typically begins in adolescence with hormonal changes. However, there are many older individuals who suffer from “adult acne.” There are different levels of acne ranging from milder comedonal (blackheads and whiteheads) to moderate, pustule, on to severe cystic acne. In many cases, several or all of these levels of acne can be present on an individual simultaneously.

Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands in the skin. The sebaceous glands, triggered by the hormone androgen, produce sebum (oil) in the skin. Although androgen is a male hormone, it is present in both men and women. Production of this hormone is highest during puberty, but it is always present in the body. When androgen levels increase, the sebaceous glands release sebum. Ordinarily this oily substance spills onto the skin. When cells from the lining of hair follicles shed too quickly—clumping together and clogging pores—sebum is trapped beneath the skin causing whiteheads and blackheads. Sebum can then mix with the trapped cells and cause Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes)—bacteria normally found on the skin–to grow in the clogged follicles. P. acnes can cause inflammation and pus and can result in papules or pustules. When the follicles expand as much as they can, bumps called nodules are formed under the skin.

HOW DOES the treatment work?
The laser acne and scar removal laser achieves amazing results for patients with the treatments. The laser will emit high pulses of light targeting into the dermis to help eliminate damaged skin cells.  This highly effective laser acne and scar removal laser can also help more features of the skin besides removing unwanted acne scars. This laser helps improve the skin’s overall tone, texture, and tightness. Also, it helps to remove any brown spots the patient may have. Patients will appear younger after receiving laser acne scar removal treatments because of the overall improvement of their skin. The treatment reduces skin oiliness and minimizes the appearance of pore size. The entire skin texture improves following a laser treatment.

What are the advantages of this procedure?
The advantages of laser acne and scar treatment are

  • Rapid treatment of acne lesions all over the face,
  • No scarring,
  • No surgical excisions and
  • No systemic side effects. The
  • Skin appears refreshed and younger.

There is reduced scarring and improved cosmetic outcomes compared to surgery. Furthermore, it improves the whole facial area treated, creating all one color, texture, and tone rather than just spot treating with liquid nitrogen and surgery. We advise at least 4 treatments at 4 week intervals to obtain optimal results.  Other treatments may also be combined to achieve optimal results.

How much improvement can I expect?
Patients will see considerable improvement. Skin tone and texture will improve dramatically as well.

How many treatments will it take to see the "best" results?
To achieve maximum improvement you will need at least four treatments 4 weeks apart. More treatments can be done at periodic intervals in the future to maintain the rejuvenated appearance of the skin.

Once treated by a light source, P. Acnes temporarily disappears from the sebaceous glands and the acne seemingly stops. However, P.Acnes recolonizes the sebaceous glands after a period of “recovery” time, and the acne flares again. This happens with various LED or laser type treatments as well as IPL and other similar devices.
During your office consultation you will be provided with a detailed plan of the treatments that will benefit you most. Please contact us at 718-476-3299 or 814-EZ-LASER with any questions you may have or schedule an appointment online for a consultation.
