A non-invasive treatment specifically designed to target mild to moderate acne, IPL often produces hugely successful results.
Whilst similar to typical laser treatment, IPL uses a bright light with multiple filters placed in front of it. Dependent on which wavelength is administered, the light energy will penetrate just beneath the skin’s surface – essentially damaging the skin pigment.
This then causes the body’s natural repair mechanisms to kick-in, removing the damaged tissue and replacing it with smoother, fresher-looking skin.
And, as all potentially harmful wavelengths are automatically filtered out by the advanced intense pulse light treatment, you’re at no risk of pain or permanent damage to your skin.
A fantastic solution for those struggling with acne, pigmentation, bad texture or scarring, IPL can be used alone or with other procedures for severe acne cases.
High intensity light directly penetrates the skin’s upper layer, targeting bacteria responsible for causing acne. This not only stimulates the body’s natural repair mechanisms, but also stops acne at its source by destroying existing bacteria.
A course of several IPL sessions is often needed to achieve maximum results. Cases of mild to moderate acne are typically cleared within one month, but this heavily depends on individual factors.
Most people can tolerate this treatment very well in terms of pain, with most simply describing the sensation as a light rubber band snapping onto the skin. But, if you’re particularly sensitive to pain, a topical anesthetic can be applied before treatment begins.
