Acne Treatment

About Acne Treatment:

The treatment of acne using pulsed-light is constantly gaining popularity among patients seeking a drug-free alternative to treat this chronic, common skin disease which affects up to 80% of individuals at some time in their life.

Beamax provides very satisfactory results in the treatment of mild and moderate inflammatory acne, by reducing the number papules and pustules by 60-65%.  This is achieved using three effective, safe and reliable clinical mechanisms: visible blue light absorption to destroy bacteria, yellow light coagulation of blood vessels which feed the acne and infrared heat to dry the lesions.

Why is pulsed-light treatment preferable to topical acne medications?
Topical acne medications are often irritating to the skin, and more than 40% of acne bacteria are insensitive to oral antibiotics.  Furthermore, topical treatments may incur severe side effects, are costly, and usually require at least 3-4 months of therapy.

How many treatments are required with pulsed light?
The typical regimen is 8 short treatment sessions over a period of 1 month to reduce papules and pustules by 60-65%.

What are the advantages of Sharplight treatment for acne?
Treated patients experience no side effects, enjoy shorter disease duration and reduced psychological stress, as well as less likelihood for acne lesions to leave permanent scars.

About Pulsed Light Treatment:

What is pulsed light?
Pulsed light systems use hand-held flash lamps to emit gentle, momentary pulses of light to create heat to achieve excellent long-term results when treating superficial veins, skin pigmentations, acne and other skin lesions.

How does light-based technology work?
Light-based technology is based on a method called “selective photothermolysis”, which works by selective destruction of a specified target without damaging surrounding tissue.  When treating textural complaints such as fine wrinkles and large pores, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin glow and more youthful.

Are pulsed-light aesthetic treatments painful?
During the procedure, a slight, momentary sensation may be felt.

Are pulsed-light aesthetic treatments safe?
All pulsed-light treatments are non-invasive and safe, with minimum side effects.
