Acne is a common skin disease that affects most of the people at some point in their lives. Acne is more common among teenagers because it is only with the onset of puberty that the body begins to produce hormones. 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 of the face.
Lasers have been used for years to treat acne scars. In such treatments, the laser is used to remove skin so that new skin can form in its place. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, with laser resurfacing the penetration depth into the skin is more easily controlled. The laser gently vaporizes the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that undamaged skin below is revealed.
