Laser Acne Treatments
A Drug-Free, Painless and Effective Acne Treatment
Acne is the most common skincare problem seen by doctors. It is a condition that affects people of all ages, with 80% of teenagers being affected and approximately 50% of adult women experiencing some form of acne during their adult lives. Acne happens when overactive sebaceous (oil-producing) glands start producing too much sebum, usually at puberty. In some people, the excess sebum clogs pores, which leads to the inflammation (redness and swelling) associated with acne. Heredity can also play an important factor on whether you get acne and its severity. In the cases of mild to medium acne outbursts, often times over-the-counter washes are enough to control the situation. In more serious cases however, a dermatologist may recommend laser acne treatment. When dealt with improperly, acne can leave both physical and emotional scars. Les Cours Medical Centre’s state-of-the-art Laser Acne Treatments are the perfect solution for those who want permanent relief from the effects of acne.
Description of technology
Les Cours Medical’s Laser Acne Treatment works by helping reduce or resurface acne scarring by removing the outermost layer of skin. This leaves a newer, younger layer of exposed skin, and as the outermost layer heals, it becomes noticeably less uneven and discoloured. The infrared energy wavelengths also allow controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. This treats over-acting sebaceous glands that are the cause of acne.

Photodynamic Therapy for Acne
PhotoDynamic Therapy (PDT) is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment for acne. The non-UV blue light emitted from the device kills the bacteria on your skin that is responsible for acne (propionibacterium). A photodynamic therapy session only takes 15 minutes and isn’t painful at all. It is considered very safe and since it isn’t a drug, there are no drug-related side effects to worry about. Most patients who use this therapy notice a dramatic improvement in their skin. If you want to minimize pores and reduce oil glands, get rid of your acne and improve the appearance of acne scars, photodynamic therapy is an excellent solution.
