The Truth About Laser Treatment for Acne Scars

Posted Dec 18 2008 7:30pm
Everyone knows that having acne is an embarrassing problem. Now imagine having chronic acne. People with chronic acne problems will often try every face cream and treatment method known to man to try to get rid of those ugly pimples and acne scars. Yet nothing seems to work.

While I often recommend that people with acne try to solve the problem naturally by watching their diet, exercising, and using some type of natural acne face cream, in cases of chronic acne it often takes a more serious type of treatment to solve the problem.

Laser treatment for acne has proven to be one of the most effective types of acne treatment available. Laser treatment for acne uses a combination of laser carbon dioxide and a YAG laser.

Laser treatment for acne removes the top layers of your skin, in order to remove as much as the scarring caused by acne as possible, as well as to smooth and tighten your skin. Laser acne treatment is a quick, painless, outpatient procedure, which makes the procedure less inconvenient to your everyday life.

What's The Downside To The Treatment?

There are two downsides to getting the laser treatment for acne procedure. For one, it is more expensive than treating your acne naturally. Actually it is one of the most expensive acne treatment methods out there.

Secondly, you won't see any results until about one and a half years later. However, if you suffer from chronic acne the wait is usually well worth it. People who have sensitive skin may also opt not to do the procedure as it can cause permanent damage to sensitive skin.

What Everyone With Acne Needs To Understand

With the chronic acne cases aside, people need to understand that the majority of acne cases are simply caused by a poor diet, stress, and lack of exercise. When you eat processed food, junk food, fast food, etc. your body becomes full of harmful toxins (from the chemical ingredients in the food). Those toxins are slowly released through your skin.

These toxins then appear on your skin as acne, blemishes, rashes, and other skin conditions. If you want your skin to be shiny, smooth, and radiant you need to eat a diet of organic food, mostly fruit and vegetables. These are real foods that don't have any toxins and contain all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your body needs everyday.

Exercise is the next most important step as sweating is your body's natural way of getting rid of toxins (quickly). Exercise also helps you cope with and lower stress, another one of the major causes of acne.

With a combination of exercise, a healthy diet, and using your favorite natural skin products you should be able to keep your skin looking beautiful. Just remember, what you put "inside" your body shows on the "outside" of your body.
