Believe it or not, acne is the 8th most common issue in the world and can affect people in their teens and well into their 40s. Suffering from acne can be very debilitating, especially when it occurs on your face. Hair follicles clogged with dead skin cells and oil can result in large blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and possible scarring. Even though the face is the most distressing place to have acne, it can occur anywhere there are a high number of oil glands – the back, upper chest for example.But there is help for those suffering from acne. The most common treatment involves prescriptions for antibiotics or topical gels, and those take time to work. We offer a treatment that works immediately.
How does this acne treatment work?
We offer acne light-based laser treatments, which offer relatively fast and excellent results without any severe side effects or down time. The intense pulsed light (IPL) is directed onto your skin the area that you have scarring. A chosen specific wavelength will destroy the pigmented cells so that the brown and red markings on your skin are greatly reduced. You will start to see results immediately.
Can active acne breakouts be treated?
Active breakouts can be treated. The IPL is directed onto acne lesions and will help to kill the bacteria and treat the inflammation. For active breakouts, we also recommend IPL be used along with other treatments such as topical products.
What can I expect during treatment?
We thoroughly clean your skin. A gel is then applied to your treatment area before the IPL treatment is administered. Each treatment takes about 15-20 minutes and is painless. There is no downtime with the treatment. It usually takes 3-5 treatments to achieve the very best results.
