Acne is a very common condition, not just in teenagers, but also in children, and adults. Medical treatments are available which can control almost all cases of acne. These medical treatments prescription creams, and tablets. However, medications may not suit all people, for a variety of reasons, including intolerance, and concern regarding possible side effects. Laser and similar treatments can be ideal in these situations.
Photodynamic therapy, combined with LED light, or intense pulse light, and laser, can significantly improve acne, after a few sessions. The treatment is associated with redness, swelling, and discomfort, which last several days, before settling.
If acne is treated early, scarring can usually be minimised or avoided. However, if there is scarring, laser treatment, as well as other treatments, can address this problem.
