If you have not suffered from acne you’re a lucky soul. But to most of us who have been battling acne for prolonged periods of time, it may be a losing battle. There are a lot of over the counter medications but most of them work for just a short period of time. Meaning the effects are just short term and in the end all the acne just comes back. In fact there is no shortage of acne treatment medications, there are a lot but the question is whether which among these really works. Home remedies like toothpastes, lemons, salicylic acid among others have been used time and again to treat stubborn acne. There appears to be a much plausible and much effective way: Acne Laser Treatment. This article focuses its discussion about this treatment and will try to shed light on whether you should go on with this one. But what exactly is a laser treatment?

We will try to discuss both below in the simplest manner possible so the readers may better understand the difference between the two.
1. High-Intensity Lasers – This one aims to reduce acne by reducing and resurfacing acne by removing the outermost skin. This may mean peeling and reddening of the skin but you are assured of a more youthful and newer layer of skin once the procedure is done. Persons who have used this treatment say that the unevenness of the skin and even the discoloration is noticeably lesser.
2. Diode Lasers – This type of laser treatment works by reducing the ability of the skin to produce sebum, the natural oil produced by the skin. The sebaceous glands (some of it) are destroyed thereby reducing the production of oils that may come in contact with bacteria that in turn may produce acne. Just like High-Intensity Lasers they may also lessen discolorations and unevenness of the skin.
Acne battle is a never ending battle. The best (and cheapest) way to do this is through the right diet, exercise, and right lifestyle. If you are getting too much acne it may be a reflection of your lifestyle which you may need to tweak it a bit. In this case expensive Acne Laser Treatment may not be an option.
