Acne occurs when a sebaceous oil gland surrounding a hair follicle becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria growth in this clogged environment causes infection and acne blemishes.
The combined bi-polar radio frequency and blue light energies of Elos technology penetrate the skin to precisely target and destroy active acne-casing bacteria, while also slowing excessive sebaceous oil production. Treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.
Acne treatment with Elos is very comfortable and requires no topical anesthetics or other skin preparation. Cooling of the skin surface helps ensure additional safety during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Elos is an effective treatment for all skin types.
The number of treatments depends on the severity of acne. Typically 8 treatments are needed 1 – 2 weeks apart to achieve maximum results.
