I have suffered from acute acne since being a teenager. At various times I have been prescribed antibiotics and Roaccutane and have also tried all the over the counter products. Although the antibiotics and Roaccutane helped the acne returned when I wasn’t taking them. At 22 I was still so self-conscious about my back and neck that I never took off my t-shirt even when out in the sun and never felt I could go swimming.
I was therefore really interested to hear about Laserase and about the treatments available to treat acne with laser. After having a free consultation with the nurse Jo I embarked on a 4 week course of treatment with the AFT laser. I had two treatments a week for the 4 weeks and have been amazed with the difference it has made to the active acne on my neck (it literally stopped it in its tracks) and also to some old ingrained spots on my back.
I am going back for an assessment in 3 weeks and am then considering having treatment for some of the old acne scars that I have been left with too. Scar treatment uses a different laser and I am looking forward to seeing if this will give as good a result as that achieved with my active acne.
