Acne is a disease of hair follicles and sebaceous glands, which can manifest itself on the skin of the face, and on other areas of the skin.
There are 6 main types of acne spots that include:
Under the surface of the skin are many hair follicles, from which grow hair penetrating the surface of the skin through its pores. At the base of each hair follicle there are many small sebaceous glands that produce skin fat (sebum). This fat comes from the sebaceous glands through narrow channels first to the lumen of the hair follicle, and then (along the hair shaft) it rushes outward to surface of the skin.
Increasing the production of sebum and increasing the number of deceased cells - lead to the formation of stoppers, which clog the pores of the skin. It is these plugs called vulgar acne. Acne can look like:
→ in the form of whiteheads, if the plug is formed in the depth of the pore,
→ as black dots (blackheads) inside the pores, if the cork is formed at the surface of the skin.
The formation of plugs leads to the fact that the sebum, which is constantly formed by the sebaceous glands, cannot go outside and accumulates in the lumen of the hair follicle. A confined space with a nutrient medium inside is an ideal place for the development of an infection, and therefore bacteria that enter the hair follicle from the surface of the skin begin to multiply intensively there.
This leads to the development of inflammation inside and around the follicle. Inflammation for a long time can occur without the formation of pus, in this case, this formation is called a papule. The papule looks like a red inflamed bump on the surface of the skin. Papules can disappear without a trace over time, but usually they are transformed into pustules. Pustula is already a classic pimple with pus inside.
In addition, with more severe forms of acne, large inflammatory formations can be formed - nodules and cysts. Nodules are dense, painful papules of large sizes, inside of which there is also no pus. Cysts also occur, as a rule, when trying to squeeze deeply located in the skin of acne, resulting in pus penetrating deeper into the tissue
How to treat acne correctly -
If you are unable to support your own skin in good condition, consult a dermatologist for advice. Treatment of acne in adults and adolescents is the same, but the exception is women who have hormonal contraceptives as adjunctive therapy.
How to treat acne - will depend primarily on what kind of inflammatory elements are on the face skin.
To achieve any noticeable improvement in the skin condition of the face - it is necessary up to 4 weeks of treatment. The standard course of treatment is about 6 weeks. However, with persistent acne, treatment can take you up to four months (and sometimes longer) to get a good result and get rid of not only acne, but also from post-inflammatory skin pigmentation.
There are some tips to alleviating the symptoms of acne:
DENAS devices have been used successfully in acne therapy for many years.
Their use makes it possible to achieve a positive therapeutic effect, manifested by an improvement in the general state, suppression of bacterial activity, elimination of inflammation, normalization of sebaceous glands activity, reduction of clinical manifestations (acne, scars, stagnant spots), shortening of treatment time.

Additional treatment options:
There are contraindications for use. To ensure that procedures utilising the DENS instruments are carried out correctly and that an ideal combination with other treatment methods is determined, it is necessary to familiarise with the instructions for use or to consult a specialist.
