Skin acne treatment

Those, who repeatedly have tried to get themselves cured of troublesome pimples, know how much time, patience it requires, and that the treatment with various solutions, creams, chemical or mechanical peelers often do not produce the wanted result.

Modern science provides unique possibilities to cure pimples and improve the state of the skin!

Unique elōs technology (with simultaneous action of wide spectrum light and radio frequency) may be helpful in successful treatment of pimpled skin, reduction of pimples, blackheads and comedos.

Essence of acne treatment with ELOS technology: wide spectrum light (400–980 nm) kills bacteria Propionibacterium acne on skin and in oil glands. In the course of photodynamic response between light and light-sensitive molecules (protoporphyrins), free radicals appearing during oxidation, kill bacteria in overgrown oil glands; thus, infection agents are killed, inflammatory process minimizes. Energy of radio frequency turns into thermal energy, which destroys (causes thermal destruction of) oil glands. Thus, the number of dilated pores and fat production therein minimizes, skin surface gets smoother. This method of treatment is effective also in mere presence of blackheads or comedos.

Generally, a course of 8-10 treatments (two treatments per week) is recommended, however, sometimes more treatments may be required. In need of long lasting effect, later, maintenance treatments are required. During treatment, light flashes and heat, slight itch, sense of drag, nip are felt. Treatment results are greatly influenced by adjacent illnesses and conditions of organism, pharmaceuticals used, observation of expert‘s recommendations, as well as individual organism response to treatment. In the presence of a certain genetic, hormone state of the organism, it can be impossible to obtain the desirable result.
