Acne is an inflammatory disorder of the skins sebaceous glands which affects the pores and the sebaceous glands. Generally acne covers the face, arms, back and chest. Acne is an extremely common condition and we can treat small areas from having a few spots to large areas with our IPL system. On average most clients require 6 IPL treatments, which can be alternated with Microdermabrasion or skin peels to enhance the results. Treatments are usually carried out every 2-3 weeks and when results are achieved maintenance treatments may be required.
During the treatment the IPL works in two ways firstly the treatment will kill the acne bacteria under the skin, to reduce and prevent breakouts to clear the skin. Secondly the treatment will stimulate collagen around the spots to stimulate the healing process and help to reduce post hyper inflammatory pigmentation and scarring. The IPL can also help improve older acne scarring.
