Acne is a skin condition that occurs in both women and men. Among the causes that lead to acne there may be: genetic factors, nourishment, stress, some medicines or daily care of skin. Practically, acne is caused by hormones that stimulate sebaceous glands, producing extra sebum. This is the perfect environment for the emergence of the bacteria that causes acne, pimples, lesions and inflammations. In the last years, several techniques have developed. They have proven to be effective in treating acne and acne scars and are also suitable for men’s skin. Renew Skin and Health Clinic offers you a series of the latest cosmetic treatments for acne and skin lesions as acne scars, including laser acne treatment for men.

Nd:Yag laser is a true innovation in medical cosmetics, being used successfully in treatments such as the elimination of wrinkles, depigmentation, vascular lesions, scars or treating spider veins. Regarding treating acne in men, this type of laser can be used in two types of applications: non-ablative and ablative. The first one is used especially for acne removal, while the second is recommended for removing acne scars.

Nd:Yag laser therapy, professionally used by the Renew Skin and Health Clinic specialists is minimally invasive, works by stimulating the growth of new tissue and increasing collagen production. Using this technique, the first skin layer is not removed but penetrated and the energy is absorbed. The treatment uses the light of Nd:Yag laser and interacts with the bacteria that causes acne. This interaction causes the generation of free radicals form oxygen molecules that destroy the acne bacteria. Once the bacteria are killed, the inflammation will reduce quickly and the skin will get back to normal. Eliminating the scars using laser is, basically, the superficial restoration (resurfacing) of the tissue and the correction of the little irregularities. After acne, skin gets a peculiar texture and, as we grow old, this scars become more visible. The laser removes the superficial layer of the damaged skin, strengthens the middle layer of the epidermis, leaving the skin soft and smooth.

The Nd:Yag laser is effective in treating skin lesions and in acne rosacea treatment, which appears as a red lesion and/or vascular dilatation on the face. In men, acne rosacea occurs between 30 and 50 years and may be associated with inflammation of the eyes and nose.
