Laser acne treatment

Alternative treatments are sought in acne, which affects 80% of the population, due to the development of antibiotic resistance and the side effects of isotretinoin use in some patients. In addition, due to the fact that acne is a disease prone to recurrence, different treatments are needed. Laser acne treatments can be considered as an alternative method. Mechanisms of action of laser acne treatment:

Direct absorption of visible light energy by the porphyrin substance found in Propionibacterium acnes bacteria:

Pimples consist of non-inflammatory ( comedones) and inflammatory (papules, pustules and nodulocysts) elements. One of the main reasons for the formation of inflammatory acne is P. acnes bacteria, which normally lives on the skin and is found in the oil channels. P. acnes produces a substance called porphyrin. The porphyrin substance in bacteria absorbs light energy. As a result, toxic oxygen radicals are released and the bacteria is destroyed.

Effective laser and light systems in this way:


Blue light therapy (Blue-Light ):

Combination of red light and blue light


KTP laser

PDL laser

Heat damage to the sebaceous glands :

In this method, the sebaceous glands under the skin are heated and destroyed without damaging the skin. As a result of receding oil channels, acne enters a long-term recovery period.

Effective laser and light systems in this way:

Photodynamic therapy:

1450 nm diode laser

1540 nm Er: Glass laser.

Radiofrequency therapy
