Why Laser Acne Treatments ?
Laser acne therapy aims to prevent run-of-the-mill "zits" such as papules and pustules, appears to be less effective with non-inflammatory acne like whiteheads, blackheads and severe lesions. Laser acne treatments work on the premise of exciting compounds called porphyrins, which live inside acne bacteria. When the lasers excite the porphyrins, the porphyrins damage the bacteria wall, effectively killing the bacteria. Less acne bacteria should help reduce symptoms of acne. Laser treatment may also reduce sebum (skin oil) levels. Laser treatment requires trips to the skincare clinic, and costs $200-$500 per treatment. DermaEnvy usually recommends six to eight treatments, about a 10-14 days apart, to achieve maximum results.
Does Laser Acne Clearance work ?
Several studies attempting to gauge laser effectiveness exist. However, these studies are almost all small cohort (just a few people), sometimes lack split face design (compare one side of the face to the other), tend to lack long follow up (so it's hard to tell if results last), and often employ no controls. Still, almost all of the studies show at least some improvement in acne symptoms. Consensus amongst researchers is that results are temporary since colonies of acne bacteria grow back quickly. Results are also incomplete, meaning lasers alone usually do not completely clear acne. The studies show anywhere from 36% clearance to 83% (*source: acne.org)
