    Acne Treatments: RF, Ultrasound and pulsed light

    Everyone wants a beautiful, clear skin.
    However, during adolescence many are affected by a common condition, known as acne.
    While this condition usually resolves itself during adulthood, there are some who continue to suffer.

    For years, different Lasers and Lights have been used successfully against acne scarring, and their use in actually controlling existing acne is a major breakthrough and an excellent alternative for those patients who have had minimal success with traditional therapies. Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of the sebaceous hair follicles. Each follicle contains a tiny hair and multiple sebaceous glands. Under normal circumstances, sebum, the oily substance made by the sebaceous glands, travels up the hair follicle and out to the skin’s surface. However, with acne, sebum is trapped within the follicle and skin bacteria multiplies within the clogged pores. IPL destroys these acne bacteria and targets the sebaceous gland where the oil is secreted, causing the inflamed sebaceous glands to shrink, and by that preventing over-production of excess sebum. It is not a permanent solution, but the effects can last for about three to four months. For patients that suffer from adult acne and don’t want to take Accutane, IPL is a great treatment alternative. Physicians wishing to provide treatments to their patients that control existing acne and treat acne scars should definitely consider the Dermo Flash range as the ultimate option.
