Developments in laser technology nowoffer a breakthrough in the treatment ofactive acne and acne scarring. Laserpenetrates the skin without causing anyinjury and thermally affects the sebaceousglands, which are often responsible forcausing acne. For mild to moderate acne a single treatment is sufficient to suppressacne for up to three months or evenlonger. For severe acne more frequenttreatments are required and continuousimprovement is seen over the followingfew months.
River City Cosmetic Medicine Clinic offers advanced laser acne treatment protocol that provides a truly comprehensive solution to the problem of acne. Our precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light safely penetrates into skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.
For active acne, our laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects. Our high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
To treat acne scars, lasers have been usedfor many years now. The laser is used toremove micron-thin layers of skin. Unlikechemical peels and dermabrasion, laserallows the physician to precisely controlthe depth at which skin is removed andcan thus make the treatment as mild oraggressive you want it to be.
For improving the appearance of acne scars, River City Cosmetic Medicine Clinic offers a laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which an Er:YAG laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
