My skin has never been nice due to acne.

I keep getting acne even after many treatments.

I’ve been to several hospitals, but the treatment effects were short-lasting.

My face looks patchy and has scars due to acne.

I doubt that I’ll ever get rid of my acne.

“Is this how you feel? Then, find the solution at Hus-hu!”

Cause of Acne

Dermatologist’s Know-how in Acne Treatment

When it comes to acne, it will calm down if you keep your skin clean, extract it out, and control sebum secretion in the early stages; however, for severe and intractable acne, the root cause must be eliminated based on the pathogenesis in order to prevent recurrence.

영문_여드름올킬_04

1.  The sebaceous glands become well-developed due to hormones or dietary habits and secrete excess sebum.

2.  Cornification, dirt and oil on the outermost layer of the skin clump together with sebum and block the pores/hair follicles, thereby interfering with the sebum secretion.

3.  Just as pooled water rots, bacteria proliferate inside the hair follicle and inflammation occurs.

4.  Inflammation inside the skin hardens and forms a hard pus

Excessive cornification of the pores

Excess sebum secretion Inflammatory reaction Proliferation of acne-causing bacteria

Get rid of these four problems

and kill all the acnes

Hus-hu’s Acne Treatment Know-how

Proper Treatment Begins with Accurate Diagnosis

 

1. Procedure performed by a dermatologist

Acne is an inflammatory disease that requires treatment from a dermatologist. Dermatologists are highly skilled medical specialists with advanced knowledge and experience in the field of dermatology compared to general physicians. Dermatologists must study and train in skin histology and skin science for a minimum of 4 to 6 years.

About PDT

PDT is short for PhotoDynamic Therapy, which involves delivering a photosensitive agent called aminolevulinic acid (ALA), which is selectively absorbed by the sebaceous glands, and irradiating a ray or laser beam at a wavelength to which the photosensitive agent responses in order to destroy the sebaceous glands and kills acne-causing bacteria.

Characteristics of PDT

Reduced sebum secretion Kills acne-causing bacteria Removes thick cornified layer Reduces inflammation

[ A comprehensive therapy that eliminates the root cause of acne]

Principles of PDT

영문_PDT_02
영문_PDT_03

Recommended to:

  • Those who want a more effective acne treatment
  • Those who have become resistant to antibiotics used for acne treatment
  • Those who cannot take acne medications
  • Those who cannot visit the hospital regularly for acne treatments (students studying abroad or for an exam)

Types of PDT at Hus-hu

1.  Mild PDT (methyl ALA)

Methyl ALA, which is an upgraded version of ALA, is used as the photosensitive agent, and it penetrates into the sebaceous glands better than its predecessor, thereby resulting in improve effectiveness. Also, it contains epidermal growth factor (EGF), which helps damaged skin to regenerate quickly. The breakdown speed is also faster compared to the conventional ALA PDT, and this shortens the treatment time.

It is typically performed once every 3 to 4 weeks for a total of 2 to 3 sessions.

 

 

2.  Soft PDT

You can return to your normal day-to-day activities without having to avoid the sun after treatment.

Its effectiveness can be enhanced by combining it with other therapies.

It is typically performed once every 2 weeks for a total of 3 to 5 sessions.

 

3.  Laser PDT

Laser PDT kills acne-causing bacteria, reduces sebum secretion, contracts pores and removes the cornified layer. Its effectiveness lasts longer than the conventional PDT methods, and you can also combine it with other therapies for diminishing the appearance of acne marks and pigmentations.

 

The intense laser beam improves the acne condition by 50~60% after a single treatment and by 90% after three treatments.

Aside from acne, it is also recommend to those with enlarged pores or shiny, oily skin resulting from excess sebum secretion.

Vbeam PDT

Methyl ALA, which is an upgraded version of ALA, is used as the photosensitive agent, and Vbeam laser is irradinated to get rid of acne and red acne marks in addition to regenerating collagen.
