Quanta LaserTreatment for Acne

Acne is a inflammatory skin condition that is caused by a bacteria called Propionibacterium acne (P acne) which resides in clogged hair follicles/pores of the skin due to oily skin conditions and dead skin.
The bacteria causes inflammation which leads to papule and pustules and eventually leads to post inflammatory hyper pigmentation(PIH) and scarring once the lesion heals

Although the main stay of treatment is still antibiotics, exfoliants, retinol , benzoyl peroxide and other topical treatments the use of lasers to treat the inflammatory condition as well as the complications (PIH) and scarring is growing

Our Quanta lasers can

  • Reduce the inflammatory condition (lasers are thought to have anti-inflammatory properties
  • Kill the P Acne bacteria. The laser beam excites porphyrin which is a substance produces by the bacteria, which in turn damages the cell wall of the bacteria which kills it
  • Reduce sebum production

Suggested Treatment Protocol

3 treatments at least 1 months apart
More treatments may be needed depending on severity of the acne

Quanta Laser for Toe Fungal Treatment

Fungal treatment of the toes are very difficult to treat and involve using medications for a prolonged period that can cause liver damage and require close monitoring

Toe Fungus is caused by trychophyton rubrum, a resistant fungus.

The way Quanta Leasers work is by the delivery of short bursts of high energy focused laser beams that heat up the targeted tissue without affecting surrounding tissue, leading to the demise of the fungus.

Advantage of the treatment is that

  • It is effective
  • a couple of sessions usually suffice
  • Avoids the complications associated with the use of anti-fungal medications

Suggested Treatment Protocol

Although 1 treatment can be enough to kill the fungus we advice at least 3 treatments spaced a few weeks apart.

Quanta Intense Pulse Light Treatment (IPL Treatment)

IPL treatment is a light based treatment and is not a laser. The difference being IPL uses bright light in front of which a filter is put that filters out most wavelengths except those that are taken up by pigments and blood vessels. the beam of light damages the pigments in this case melanin and or blood vessels that are eventually removed by the body.

  • Rejuvenates the skin
  • Can be used for removing hair in lighter skin individuals (FP 1 to 3). Cannot be used in (FP 4-6), although it can sometimes be used very cautiously in light skinned FP4”s

Suggested Treatment Protocol for Pigmented lesions and Telangiectasia’s
