Acne appears when the skin’s pores become clogged with the build up sebum (an oily or waxy matter) and a high level of Propionibacterium Acnes (bacteria) causing blackheads or whiteheads to form within the pore. White blood cells then infiltrate the area and ensuing inflammation can lead to acneiform lesions called papules, nodules or cysts.
Successful treatment of acne relies on reducing the bacteria count of the bacteria and to reduce the excess sebum production from the sebaceous gland.
Laser Treatment for Acne
One of the treatment methods we employ with outstanding results is using elōs acne treatment, the first and only technology that uses combined energies (radio frequency and light energy) to effectively and gently provide relief from active acne by treating the problem at its source.
The combined bi-polar radio frequency and blue light energies of elōs technology penetrate the skin to precisely target and destroy active acne-causing bacteria, while also slowing excessive sebaceous oil production. Treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.
Pre and Post elōs Acne Treatment Images
Typically 6-8 elōs acne treatments are necessary to see excellent results.
This acne procedure is a low risk treatment with no down-time, and is a treatment protocol offering gradual and safe improvements for patients with active papular-papulopustular acne.
