Acne is a huge problem, not just for teenagers but also for adults. Acne is a disorder of the skin follicles, the result is that an infection known as P Acnes occurs. This happens when too much oil is produced and as a result causes this infection.
Unsightly and uncomfortable, inflammation can occur when trying to deal with the acne which then results in a large spot.
Many creams and ointments are used by people to combat acne but this does not always work. Another alternative treatment is Laser Acne Treatment.
A health clinic based in London specialises in the treatment of acne. They use a system known as Sciton laser. The method used is to use the broad band light platform on the Sciton laser, which painlessly heats the area around the damaged acne, resulting in destroying the P.Acnes bacteria, lowering the oil production. To treat the acne scarring, Profractional laser is then used to reduce scarring and promote rapid healing. The combination of both these laser treatments are used to treat acne successfully. They are proven to be a success compared to other medical treatments such as roaccutane.
The popularity and success of such treatments has resulted in people wanting to pay for such treatment. But what are the costs involved? Some clinics are offering treatment as a guided price, at approximately £85 and these clinics assure customers that their acne can be dealt with within 24 to 48 hours, after which they should see effective results. Clinics can also offer a free consultation for their customers. Clinics also claim that depending on the extent of the acne on the face, treatment can last from as little as 5 to 20 minutes.
Some clinics use a laser treatment called N-Lite and can charge, as an approximate guide, £250. These clinics claim that Nlite laser, targets the bacteria that causes the infection and has been described as the most significant advance in technology in decades. With Nlite, the SmartPulse laser light targets the bacteria that causes the infection. The laser light can clear acne in a few sessions. The clinic claims that after 12 weeks 87% of patients experience a substantial improvement in their condition.
Costs appear to vary according to different clinics but are in the range of £80 to £300, depending on the type of laser treatment chosen. It is important to research each clinic and to understand all the procedures involved. It is also important to be aware of all the possible side effects involved.This will also determine the cost of the treatment. A positive aspect of this treatment is that often clinics will offer a free initial consultation, after which the customer will then have to pay.
