Acne

Eufoton offers several methods for the treatment of active acne and acne scarring.
 

1.LASEmaR® 500 selective photothermolysis

The use of fractional green light (532 nm) as a selective photothermolytic solution for active acne (propion bacteria).
Applying the 532 nm green light to the skin causes the endogenous porphyrins in the bacteria to be released, which are responsible for the condition. These self-released substances have a lethal effect on the propionic bacteria that are responsible for the pathology. Besides progressively eliminating the microorganisms, the applied energy stimulates the fibroblasts that help repair and regenerate the skin tissue. Light stimulation also leads to a gradual lowering of sebum secretion, resolving the acne pathology even more.

    2.LASEmaR® 800 photodynamic ablation therapy

    The use of low-energy lasers on photodynamic chromophores offers a much less invasive alternative to traditional treatments such as dermoabrasion and antibiotics, which have the disadvantage of reacting indiscriminately to all cells, even healthy ones.
    LASEmaR® 800 , in combination with an exogenous chromophore, can be used to treat active acne through photodynamic therapy (PDT). It can also be used to treat acne-induced scarring in combination with a superficial abrasion performed by means of the scanner method (SCANNEmaR).

    3. LASEmaR® 1500 (or ATON) non ablative fractional therapy for scars

    The treatment of acne-induced scarring with non-ablative fractional resurfacing lasers has been a recognized practice in dermatology for many years. This treatment is indicated for all acne scars of the face and body that can be treated with non-ablative fractional methods at 1470 nm or 1940 nm.
    Non-ablative Fractional Lasers
    Fractional photothermolysis is a method that, by combining the laser energy with a fractional scanner, creates tiny channels (M.T.Z. Micro Thermal Zones) at various depths in the skin, spaced between healthy tissue.
     
    Why choose non-ablative resurfacing?
     
    The effects of a non-ablative laser on acne-induced scars are not immediate, but require the necessary time (about 3 weeks) for new collagen to form.
    Nevertheless, fractional lasers and non-ablative technology have evolved and have spread considerably because the side effects are minimal, pain is greatly reduced and there is no interruption in social life between one session and the next. The diameter of the M.T.Z. is only 200 microns and the tissue repair process (coming from adjacent intact areas) is very fast.
    In addition to scars, it can also be used with excellent results on wrinkles, pigmented lesions from sun exposure, senile lesions, melasma, stretch marks and shrinking of pores.
