Dermatologists recommend the use of gold dust, coupled with laser therapy for the treatment of acne in adults.
Experts from king’s College London believe that this method is much more efficient and safer than taking drugs, reports the Daily Mail.
Tiny particles of quartz, covered with gold rubbed into the pores, and then heated with a laser. The particles absorb heat, cause a slight burn, which destroys the acne.
Cosmetic technique is called Sebacia and includes three sessions of treatment with an interval of one week, although, according to dermatologists, to achieve the full effect may take from six months to a year.
A study carried out in nine private hospitals in Europe and presented at the conference of the American society of dermatologic surgery in October, showed excellent results in 79 % of cases six months after initiation of treatment.
“Gold is used because it is inert and not harmful,” explains Dr. AI Lin Chu (Ai-Lean Chew) that uses this technique.
Microparticle, which is actually black in color, small enough to slip into the pores or sebaceous glands on the face. Then doctors use a laser to “burn” acne.
The pigment particles act as a target for the laser. When hit beam gold heats up, effectively cauterizing the oil gland to shrink and no longer progressed.
It should be noted that treatment with antibiotics is also extremely effective as a means of getting rid of acne, but the main problem of of medicines that over time bacteria develop resistance to the active substances.
Recall, excessive moisturizing creams can harm the skin in the winter.
