Acne occurs when a sebaceous oil gland surrounding a hair follicle becomes clogged and inflamed. Bacteria growth in this clogged environment causes infection and acne blemishes. Elos™ Laser Acne treatment works by combining Bi-Polar Radiofrequency and Blue Light energies to penetrate the skin to precisely target and destroy active acne-causing bacteria, while simultaneously slowing excessive sebaceous oil production. Treatments help to reduce active acne and speeds up healing time. Elos™ Laser Acne treatment is effective in all skin types and the number of treatments depends upon the severity of acne. There is no associated down time with treatments, and normal activities can be started immediately after the procedure is performed.
