IPL Acne Treatment
Acne is a skin condition that can be extremely distressing and embarrassing for sufferers the caused by a disorder affecting the skins' sebaceous glands resulting in inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions. There are many forms of acne and acne-related conditions, which affect many age groups at different stages of their life, not just teenagers. The IPL treatment is designed to speed up cell renewal which will help to control the break outs and unblock the pores, making your skin look clearer and smoother.
The system consists of intense light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow light emitted by the system destroys the bacteria that cause acne, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause acne. This heats the glands and appears to help prevent the production of excess sebum. Treatments are recommended every 2-4 weeks. The number of sessions needed varies from person to person, but usually about 6 treatments are carried out, with top-up sessions as required.
To fully understand the IPL treatment a consultation will be given to explain how the treatment works, and to assess your suitability. Not everyone is suitable for IPL treatment.
A patch test will be given prior to treatment commencing to check your skins reaction and establish a treatment plan.
