Acne Treatment Oakville
Acne can appear on the skin of almost anyone. Teenagers and adults alike can experience breakouts and try many remedies to remove them. Fortunately, LightTouch Med Spa provides laser treatments at our spa locations in Oakville, Milton, Mississauga, and Waterloo, that offer a wide range of benefits, including long-term relief from acne. In this article by LightTouch Med Spa, we will talk about how acne treatment, like laser skin resurfacing, can be effective with diminishing the look of acne scars, breakouts, and blackheads.
How do acne breakouts occur?
Acne breakouts occur when a hair follicle becomes clogged with the natural skin oils and dead skin cells. Bacteria that are already on the face find these follicles a good place to multiply and a small inflammation is born. These inflammations may be relatively harmless like blackheads and whiteheads, or they can be serious cysts deep in the skin. The most common type of acne is pustules or what are commonly called pimples. There are many creams, lotions, face washes, and gels that claim to treat pimples, but they rarely work.
How can laser acne treatment help?
Laser treatment is a good option for people who suffer from severe acne and have exhausted all topical and oral types of treatments. Laser treatment is non-invasive and may provide long-term freedom from breakouts. The laser passes through the superficial layers of skin to reach the deeper layers, where the bacteria that cause acne reside. The laser safely targets the bacteria that cause acne. The laser may also affect the sebaceous gland so that it can no longer produce breakouts. At LightTouch Med Spa, we use the PIXEL Laser Skin Rejuvenation system and a two step process. The first step involves IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) that reduces inflammation and breakouts. The second step involves resurfacing the skin, removing the damaged skin, and bringing your skin back to its healthiest condition.
*Results May Vary*
One of the biggest concerns for acne patients is acne scars. The best way to prevent acne scars is to treat and clear up acne before scarring occurs. If you suffer from breakouts and are worried about scars, acne treatment in Oakville at LightTouch Med Spa may be your best option. It will not only remove inflammations that are already on your face, but it will also help to stop future breakouts from occurring.
