Therapy options for acne skin
The most common therapy includes repeated antibiotic and antiseptic treatment, abscess splitting as well as scar excision and wound coverage using split-thickness skin grafts.
How does Laser Acne Removal Treatment work?
Similar to hair removal, the infrared radiation of the laser penetrates deep enough into the skin to reach the sebaceous gland follicles. Porphyrin-forming bacteria and fungi considered to be local causes of acne are destroyed in this procedure.
The light destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause acne and leads to the shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands. The pustules begin to clear. The skin condition will improve after a series of treatments.
Recommendations for laser acne removal treatment
Suggested number of treatments: 5 or 6 sessions every 5 or 7 days.
High sun protection factor required between each session and after finish of the whole course.
For men – skin needs to be shaved either a day before or during the same day.
We will advise you before the laser acne removal treatment
Please note that consultation before starting the treatment is necessary as many types of acne may require dermatologist attention first before trying the laser.

Acne Vulgaris is one of the most frequently treated illnesses in dermatology practices. Acne is primarily an illness of the sebaceous gland follicles, which are located predominantly on the face, back and chest. Acne Vulgaris or “common acne” is caused by increased androgen levels during puberty and subsides when the patient enters their thirties at the latest.
A less common and more severe disease is acne inversa. It is an illness of skin appendages that starts in the sebaceous glands and has a secondary effect on the apocrine perspiratory glands. It affects the back and stomach less frequently and very rarely affects otherwise typical acne regions, such as the face.
