Patient testimonial

Acne with Lotus Laser

Yesterday I started acne treatment with Lotus. I am waiting for the results, but I saw the videos of previous treatments and I am sure it will work. The attention is excellent. I am attending the Hoogstra de Caballito clinic with Dr. Elena Placenti, a very good professional.

Warts and acne

Very good attention, excellent professionals, I was treated for a wart on my neck and it was removed with a laser at the moment and without pain. I also treated myself for a case of stubborn acne on my back and they gave me treatment with antibiotics and lotion that cured me after suffering from this disease for years. I attended at the Belgrano headquarters that is opposite the Plaza de Barrancas. I did the treatment with Dr. Belén Salvaneschi.

Acne Acne Back and Shoulder Treatment

My name is Veronica, I am 34 years old, I suffer from acne, specifically on my back and shoulders, due to an endocrinological problem. I have hyperandrogenism and that makes my sebaceous glands work harder ... I tried thousands of creams, cosmetics treatments and birth control pills to treat me ... none caused the effect that I am having with the Laser Lotus II

More Information on Scar Acne

Clinical picture:
To better understand how this process is, we must first understand what acute acne is.
Acute acne is caused by obstruction, outflow of the contents of the sebaceous pilo gland. This obstruction generates sebum retention and dead cells.
Dilation of the gland manifests itself on the skin as multiple pimples.
The sebum and dead cells retained in the sebaceous follicle promote the proliferation of bacteria, then infection ensues, the pimples turn red and hot.
Acute acne severity ranges from comedonic acne or blackheads, through pustules to large inflammatory nodules.
These processes affect the skin and subcutaneous cellular tissue to varying degrees, causing scars of varying degrees ranging from small depressions in the skin to large depressed scars.
The inflammatory nodules are usually the ones that leave the scars deeper and more extensive.
