Acne Therapy I Acne Treatment

Do pimples and acne effect your self-esteem?


Pimples and acne are a widely recognized problem that all individuals encounter at least once in their life. For many, acne scarring and blemishes profoundly impact on self-confidence. IPL treatments can provide an effective acne treatment, as well as permanent solution to scarring.

Acne is one of the most common, yet hardest skin problems to treat. Regardless of skin type or lifestyle, we can all suffer from it at some point in our lives.

Acne is a skin concern that emerges mainly from the overproduction of oil by the skin’s oil glands. Whilst the oil normally lubricates the skin, it can sometimes get trapped in blocked oil ducts and appears as a pimple. Hormonal changes can also cause the enlargement and obstruction of sebaceous glands in the skin. This typically results in painful, inflamed lesions that can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs and virtually any other part of the body. Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover and fighting bacterial infection. Unfortunately most cosmetic lines designed to improve acne are not well formulated for fighting it and only aggravate the condition. And with most prescription acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better.

IPL can effectively clear mild to moderate inflammatory acne and dramatically improve the overall look of your skin.

IPL Acne Treatments utilize a high intensity light source to penetrate the tissue and destroy acne bacteria quickly and easily. Typically, just 4 - 6 treatments over a two month period will greatly improve the appearance of skin as well as even out skin tone and reduce acne scaring.

The effectiveness of the IPL treatment depends on the severity of acne and the type of associated scaring. Often IPL treatments used in conjunction with other procedures such as microdermabrasion and the right skin regime can help achieve the best results.
