Laser treatment of acne and rosacea today is based on technologies that eliminate the drawbacks of traditional methods of removing deep scars – painful and long recovery period. An advantage of laser therapy is that the guaranteed safety effect is observed after the first procedure, no pain, damage to neighboring tissues is minimized.
Acne is a disease of sebaceous follicles, which results in increased sebum secretion, abnormal keratinization of the follicle and formation of comedones, inflammatory papules, pustules, abscesses, and cicatrix. Before proceeding to the treatment of acne, you need to define the reasons for its appearance – genetic, hormonal, neurogenic, medicaments etc. After consulting with Dr. Gyurova, will be made an individual regimen for a solution. Dr. Magdalina Gyurova’s Medical Center works with fractional CO2 laser recognized by experts as one of the most effective laser systems to treat acne.
The laser operates on the basis of fractionation technology, which allows processing only a fraction of the skin surface while maintaining healthy the skin links of the surrounding tissues. This enables rapid recovery of the skin. Impact accurately and proportionally damaged tissues by softening the hard connective tissues, equilibrating the color. Simultaneously, improving skin thickness, elasticity, and freshness, since it stimulates the production of collagen.
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin, resulting in redness, the formation of dilated superficial blood vessels on the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin. After time may be accompanied by red and inflamed pimples, red nose, which in severe cases can deform – enlargement and acquisition of reddish to purple hue. If left untreated, the disease can worsen and remain long-lasting effects on the skin. Experts believe that the main cause of the disease lies in the blood vessels. So Nd: YAG laser produces excellent results in treating rosacea. Wavelength, which is absorbed in the blood (hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin) is used. The absorbed light energy is transformed into heat and selectively destroys damaged tissues, because they are richer in hemoglobin than the healthy skin. With the introduction of new wavelengths and adjustable pulse duration, the therapy with Nd: YAG spares the patient and minimizes the occurrence of complications.
Treatment depends on the severity of the disease, the individual capacity of the skin to recover, and the power of the laser treatment.
After the procedure for acne and rosacea, it is possible reddening of the skin, which is not painful and fades quickly. In both cases, it is important to know that the skin becomes more sensitive. Therefore, the use of sunscreen in high factor, regardless of weather conditions is imperative.
Rosacea patients should avoid hot baths and gymnastic exercises in the next 72 hours after the operation.
