I discussed how lasers can work to treat acne in this previous post. Below is a video of the laser in action. First, a lotion is applied to the face that contains very small carbon particles, small enough in size to settle into the pores. With the first pass of the Tri-Beam laser, heat is generated within these particles, which destroy the bacteria, called P.acnes, which resides within our pores and cause acne. The second pass removes the carbon lotion on the surface of the skin by disrupting these tiny carbon particles, thereby superficially peeling the skin and efficiently cleaning out and shrinking the pores. It’s pretty neat to watch the carbon lotion being removed. Enjoy!
