Causes of Acne and How We’re Solving This Age-Old Skin Problem
Almost everyone has experienced some degree of acne throughout their life- be it unavoidable and awkward hormonal adolescent acne, college stress-induced skin problems, or embarrassing adult acne. Most everyone understands and relates to how uncomfortable living with skin issues can be. Those who suffer from ceaseless acne have probably experienced feelings of shyness, a reduced social appetite, and an inclination to hide from friends and loved ones in order to “save face”. While for most, acne appears to subside shortly after puberty or high school, others are stricken with terrible adult or cystic acne that can be extremely painful and leave unattractive facial scarring. For those who have had the unfortunate chance of dealing with acne for too many years to count with little hope on the horizon, we finally have a promising solution.
Why Was Nothing Working?
For as long as anyone can recall, there has been a plethora of acne creams, facial cleansers, masks, and treatments readily available. Regardless of price and setting, whether they were top of the line, exclusive and expensive creams, or drugstore sold products, most of these cleansers and facewashes, and promising solutions never seemed to work very well. There was hardly anything that resembled the all-encompassing solution everyone craved to end all acne issues.
In actuality, most available acne products have been proven to contain harmful drying agents, furthering the damage to our skin and causing our glands to react by over-producing oils. It’s like fixing a leaky hose, once one hole is fixed, a new one springs up and we do our best to patch and replace it over and over again. So has been the trend with acne products. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as the ultimate acne product that works for everyone. Research is showing that due to each individual’s unique skin type, individual lifestyle, eating habits, and daily stressors, we must take these factors into account when working to remedy skin problems. Our skin has suffered from so much misguided cosmetic propaganda and streamlined, impersonal products that these treatments have left most of us untrusting of acne solutions altogether.
So How Does it Work?
With exciting new technology coming out every year, and constant testing and research being done on this widely affecting issue, we have finally arrived at a promising solution. Eradicating bacteria and oils deep within the skin, this groundbreaking skin treatment combines light and radiofrequency of the Elōs system to effectively penetrate the skin and target activity within the sebaceous glands. This thorough penetration destroys acne-causing bacteria deep within the tissues of the skin, rather than simply treating the surface which doesn’t house the real issues. While diminishing harmful bacteria, this laser also reduces the excessive production of oil from sebaceous glands. This treatment reduces active acne and speeds the healing of the skin, producing amazing results. This acne treatment is made available with innovative instruments designed by Elōs and has proven to be a lifesaver for thousands across the country.
Recovery and Results
Elōs treatment does not hurt and it also doesn’t require a topical anesthetic or other uncomfortable and lengthy skin preparations. Cooling of the skin surface helps ensure additional safety during treatment. The entire procedure takes no longer than 30 minutes, and will leave your skin revamped, rejuvenated, and ready to heal. Best of all, this is a no-downtime procedure, meaning that most patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Patients can expect to see results based on the severity and conditions of their typical acne. The more severe the case, the longer it may take for results to be noticeable. The patient will receive a personalized treatment schedule during the initial consultation with Dr. Simoni that will be tailored to get maximum results as soon as possible. Additional treatments can be scheduled as necessary, to increase results and reach the level of desirability sought!
