How is my acne reduced? Using Elos technology, clogged hair follicles, which cause active acne, are heated and then flushed out. Scar tissue is the main source of acne bumps and inconstancy on the skin. Using heat, we soften the scar tissue causing it to even out the skin surface, along with the help of microdermabrasion and chemical peels. This process is done with very little down time.
