Acne affects many different age groups, though it is most prevalent in teens. Many who struggle with acne at a young age have flair ups throughout their adulthood as well. There are plenty of products on the market that people with acne try in order to clear up their skin. But sometimes, either nothing works or the problem is severe enough that they want to try something better than a cream or cleanser.
Laser acne treatments aim to prevent regular pimples and breakouts as well as inflammatory acne. Lasers pierce through the skin and aim to kill the bacteria beneath it. This can often reduce the symptoms of acne since less bacteria is present to aggravate the issue.

Does Acne Laser Treatment Work?
The answer to this question cannot be answered in an umbrella manner because it varies from person to person. The answer is yes for some, no for others. And it depends on the type of acne, the type of treatment and many other factors. All of the studies that have been done on acne laser treatments show that those who receive it enjoy some type of improvement in their acne symptoms.
What are the Side Effects?
Many patients feel a little pain or some discomfort during the treatment process. Some see redness or skin inflammation right after the treatment and others have their skin peel a bit. Anyone receiving the treatment should avoid sunlight for 30 hours after in order to minimize the side effects that can occur.
