All Your Questions About ESPADA Are Answered

ESPADA is the ultimate weapon against acne is something everyone will say after the first use. But, if you still haven’t tried this revolutionary and powerful device, here’s the collection of the most frequently asked questions about it. If you still thinking about whether you need this revolutionary device or not, hopefully, these answers below will help you decide. But, FYI ESPADA prevents acne before it even happens.

Will ESPADA help with my acne?

ESPADA is safe for use on mild acne (whiteheads, blackheads, and papules) and moderate inflammatory acne (inflamed, sensitive bumps filled with pus). It is not intended for the treatment of severe, nodular, or cystic acne.

Should I perform a compatibility test?

Yes, we recommend doing this before the 1st use, and here’s how:
  • Test the device on a less sensitive area of the skin, such as the inner arm, before beginning treatment on the face, following the HOW TO USE instructions exactly.
  • Wait 24 hours and check the treated area. If you don’t notice any difference (redness, discoloration, or irritation) between the treated and untreated skin, you may begin ESPADA treatments.

Can I use the ESPADA longer than 30 seconds on 1 blemish?

The ESPADA pauses every 30 seconds, but it can be used up to 2 minutes (4 thirty-second uses) on a given spot. It depends on the severity of the pimple and the sensitivity of the skin. However, do not apply the device on a blemish for more than 2 minutes in one treatment session as this can lead to skin injury.

Can I use it if I have sensitive skin?

The ESPADA is safe to use on any skin type, but if you think you may be sensitive to light, you should not use the ESPADA without doing a light sensitivity test first. To do this, follow the recommended compatibility test.

If I have a sunburn, should I use this device to treat my acne?

We do not recommend the usage of the device if you have had a sunburn within the preceding 2 weeks.

Can I share it with other people?

While the device’s treatment surface is made from antibacterial silicone, it still cannot guarantee protection against the spread of infections. Therefore, we do not recommend sharing your ESPADA with other people.

What is the technology in ESPADA which heals acne and blemishes?

This device combines two technologies. First, blue LED light, whose qualities are used not only in cosmetics but also in medicine. The blue LED light is curing on the surface of your skin. It is soft, safe, and non-invasive. The second technology, T-Sonic pulsations, stimulates blood microcirculation, facilitating the skin’s renewal. ESPADA FOREO acne

I didn't know it worked on whiteheads, they've been giving me so much trouble lately. Espada sounds like something I should try!
