What is Skin Resurfacing and Acne?

Laser skin resurfacing is the process of precise removal of skin layer by layer. Following this action, new skin cells are formed during a body’s natural healing response which gives the skin a tighter, younger-looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries on the face.

Acne is a common skin condition that happens when hair follicles under the skin become clogged. Sebum—oil that helps keep skin from drying out—and dead skin cells plug the pores, which leads to outbreaks of lesions, commonly called pimples or zits.

Skin Resurfacing and Acne Laser Therapy

Skin resurfacing and acne treatment with the use of Fotona’s unique laser systems and TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation system have proven skin resurfacing and rejuvenation results. This precise laser therapy method precisely targets imperfections in the skin, avoiding healthy skin, and the procedure’s heat also helps stimulate the surrounding skin. Fotona’s laser light therapy also uses thermal acne modes to treat acne, and acne scar tissue, and reduce the development of additional acne breakouts. Fotona’s laser skin resurfacing and revision treatments yield effective, gentle, and rapid healthy skin results without side effects.

Skin Resurfacing and Acne Laser Treatment Safety

Fotona’s laser treatment for active acne reduces the inflammation of acne through its high-powered laser and controlled heating effects. This procedure safely penetrates the skin to a safe and optimal depth to thermally and precisely destroy acne inflammation by selectively targeting overactive sebaceous glands. The laser treatment also speeds up the healing process and accelerates collagen remodeling, which are key factors in the long-term treatment of acne.

Skin Resurfacing and Acne Laser Treatment Sessions

Laser treatment sessions for skin resurfacing and acne consist of three steps.

Step 1 – Conditioning: A beam is passed two times along the surface of the targeted area. The first time gives the skin a quick stimulus and the second time is for the beam to penetrate the tissue. This allows for the procedure to effectively condition and deep heat the skin.

Step 2 – Fractional therapy: This process applies a fractional laser to wear away old or worn-out skin. The laser-targeted areas lead to the formation of new, tighter, and healthy skin tissue replacing worn skin.

Step 3 – Peeling: The final light full beam removes superficial imperfections, wears away the skin, and completes the laser treatment.
