Acne is a common skin disease that affects most people at some time during their lives. It is caused by factors including hormonal changes, certain medications, life style and the use of certain cosmetic products . 

Acne is most common in adolescents although for some people it may only first appear in their mid twenties and can even persist into middle age. People often squeeze spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance. This can however cause increased inflammation and in extreme cases lead to permanent scars . 

Having acne and acne scars for most people is very disturbing and presents a psychological problem as well. Luckily we can now offer a long-term solution.

Developments in laser technology now offer a breakthrough in he treatment of active acne and acne scarring.  Laser penetrates the skin without causing any injury and thermally affects the sebaceous glands, which are most often responsible for causing acne.  For mild to moderate acne a single treatment is sufficient to suppress acne for up to three months or even longer.  For severe acne, more frequent treatments are required and continuous improvement is seen over the following few months. 

To treat acne scars, lasers have been used for many years now.  The laser is used to remove micro-thin layers of skin.  Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser allows the physician to precisely control the depth at which skin is removed and can thus make the treatment as mild or aggressive you want it to be.  The laser gently vaporizes the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that within days, undamaged, you and healthy-looking skin can be formed in its place.
