Acne affects millions Americans each year. Most teenagers experience some acne, but this disease can affect individuals into their adult years. Lasers basically apply heat as a way to specifically target and eliminate acne bacteria. While acne is not life threatening, acne can scar. Lasers cause cells to produce normal collagen fibers which gradually override the acne scar tissue.
