Acne is a very common medical skin condition during adolescence, but it can also appear later in life, with a variety of intensity levels and types.
A mild type of acne is characterized by a small number of red spots and blackheads. At its most severe form the spots may be enlarged, increased in number and may become hard and painful (cysts) or infected and filled with pus (pustules). This condition may also be extended to the face, neck, décolleté and back.
Acne appears when sebum excretion and dead cells block the pores of the skin, triggering inflammation and infection by bacteria. Acne is often associated with some type of hormonal anomaly or/and digestion/nutrition reactions.
There are many treatments available that can help improve acne and minimize the symptoms, while at the same time remove any post inflammation acne scars.
Ι) ELOS™ acne treatment
The ELOS™ technology of the Syneron eMAX Platform can achieve amazing results just after a few sessions, without any discomfort, adverse reactions or recovery time. The treatment effectively controls acne symptoms while it decreases the number of breakouts and post-inflammation scars. Teenagers as well as adults, can benefit from the ELOS™ acne treatment year-round.
The ELOS™ acne treatment combines photorejuvenation and RF technology to fight acne symptoms by controlling hyperactive sebum glands, minimizing inflammation and breakouts while reducing post-inflammation discoloration and scarring.
II) Acne chemical peels
These specialized, new generation AHA/BHA (alpha and beta hydroxy) chemical peels gently exfoliate the skin, remove dead cells, decongest acneic skin and at the same time decrease inflammations and post-inflammation discolorations and scars.
Just a few days after treatment, spots, pustules and inflammation appear less intensely while the texture and tone of the skin is significantly improved. For optimum results in cases of severe forms of acne, a combination treatment program is suggested along with prescribed skincare products for home use.
III) Ideal photodynamic facial:
This combination treatment is ideal for the sensitive acneic skin. A deep yet mild cleansing facial removes sebum, balances sebum production and removes dead skin cells. Additionally, the photorejuvenation LED therapy reduces inflammation while it heals and rejuvenates the skin tissue.
What other therapies can Acne treatments be combined with?
Acne treatments can be combined with many other treatments such as Hydrafacial or with the DF machine to balance sebum production.
