Laser Acne Treatment
Laser Acne Treatment – Does It Really Work?
Laser acne treatment has become a buzzword lately, with more and more acne sufferers looking for a more effective acne treatment. But is laser acne treatment really effective? The best answer is maybe, depending on the type of acne laser treatment used.
One type of laser acne treatment uses the ClearLight laser, which is said to work by killing the bacteria (P. Acnes) which causes acne. It takes between 8 to 12 sessions and is effective for several months, according to doctors using this type of laser. However, this form of laser acne treatment is seldom covered by insurance at this time, or at most partially-covered. At up to $150 per session, this can become quite expensive.
Another laser acne treatment uses the N-lite laser, which emits a yellow light that penetrates more deeply into the skin than other types of lasers. The president of the company that markets the N-lite laser in the United States claims that this both kills more bacteria and stimulates collagen production, which helps to repair skin damaged by acne. In fact, this type of laser was first used to treat wrinkles and scars, before it was approved as a laser acne treatment. But critics claim that it’s effectiveness in treating acne is about the same as using benzoyl peroxide, a common over-the-counter acne treatment.
However, a study published in the June 16, 2004 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that laser acne treatment using the “pulsed dye” type of laser did not result in much improvement. In fact, a good portion of the subjects in the study dropped out of the test because they were not seeing sufficient results. This type of laser treats the skin more superficially than other lasers, which treat acne by delivering energy to the oil-producing glands in order to damage them and reduce their production of pore-clogging oil.
Rather than just treating the surface of the skin with a laser acne treatment, the scientists at ZENMED® have created a three step system which treats acne from the inside out. By combining herbal capsules to clean and detoxify your system with a gentle cleanser and a topical gel, the Derma Cleanse System is a safe, gentle and effective acne treatment. The cleanser and topical gel are unique because of their transdermal delivery system which allows for optimal absorption of the all natural ingredients, and unlike laser acne treatment they do not cause irritation or dry skin.
