Acne is one of the most common problems in men and women of all ages. There are different types of acne: whiteheads, black heads, zits and cysts. There is no one one particular cause of acne. Acne occurs when the sebaceous gland that is attached the the hair follicle is clogged.  The clogged hair follicle gradually  becomes bigger, producing an elevated bump.  As the follicle becomes bigger, the protective wall may rapture letting the bacteria enter deeper layers of the skin causing an inflammation.

In some cases hormonal imbalance and poor diet can also contribute to acne outbreaks. Eliminating sugar from your diet can help minimize acne.

Laser Acne Treatmentshelp reduce the appearance of acne by making the sebaceous gland produce less oil and kill the bacteria that causes acne to occur. In just as few as 3-5 treatments, patients see significant reduction in breakouts and clear skin.
