Acne can cause inflammation and swelling which is due in part to bacteria that builds up within the clogged sebaceous glands. A current acne treatment option includes laser treatment that kills this bacteria by exposing the skin to different types of light. The acne bacteria can also be killed with pulsed light and heat energy. These treatments help to shrink the sebaceous glands, which decreases oil production. The laser light is absorbed by water underneath the skin, shrinking oil glands and eliminating acne.

Candidates For Laser And Light Acne Treatment
Patients who have acne that has not responded to other treatments such as topical ointments or prescription medications may be candidates for laser and light acne treatment. In some cases, laser treatment is more effective when combined with other acne treatment such as medicine applied to the skin.
Benefits Of Laser And Light Acne Treatment
Laser and light treatments for acne do not have the dangerous possible side effects that are associated with some of the strong prescription acne medications. In addition, these treatments do not irritate or dry the skin the way some topical acne medications may.
Risks Of Laser And Light Acne Treatment
After receiving laser or light acne treatment some patients may experience redness or swelling. This may last from a few hours or up to a few days. Discomfort may be relived by applying cold compresses to the skin.
Most patients who receive laser or light treatment experience some clearing of the acne on their skin, but results may vary depending on the method that is used and the severity of the acne.
