Acne, also known as acne vulgaris or common acne, is an inflammatory disease that affects the hair follicle when the sebaceous duct is penetrated by the epidermal bacteria Propionibacterium or P. acnes. The excessive secretion of the sebaceous glands combined with dead skin cells causes clogging and inflammation of the sebaceous follicles and creates a plug in the pores. The bacterium within the plug causes swelling, pimples or blackheads (comedone) on the skin which can lead to more severe lesions and leave deep scars. Acne normally appears on the face, back, neck, chest and shoulders, and has many causes, such as hormonal changes (puberty, menstruation and pregnancy), hereditary and environmental factors, stress and certain medications.
The latest technological advances now offer you two extraordinary devices that fight this common problem like no other system, achieving a healthy and acne free skin thanks to the light’s antibacterial and purifying properties. LumiMax with the power of LED light, LumiMax PL with its exclusive fractional pulsed light technology, and our new IPL device, the LumiMax PL Tabletop, use blue light to generate the production of singlet oxygen which kills the bacterium responsible for acne and effectively eliminates infection. In addition, they emit red light at 610 nm, which acts deeply in the skin to reduce acne scars and regenerate the affected areas by increasing collagen production.
Numerous studies have proven the efficacy of these innovative systems, and their fast results make them the most successful solution against common and inflammatory acne on any skin type, without pain or side effects.
