THE DESCRIPTION OF TECHNOLOGY
Laser therapy of acne – is a local non-ablative impact on acne lesions by high-energy laser flow.
Coming into contact with the skin, the laser creates a thermal effect, further there is a partial destruction of the cells that line the ducts of the sebaceous gland (sebocytes). Such laser treatment reduces production of sebum, in parallel dying porphine-producing bacteria and fungus which cause local acne. This method locks the mechanism of the origin of acne.
