Acne Treatment IPL
Pores become clogged if there is too much sebum and too many dead skin cells. Bacteria (especially one called Propionibacterium acnes) can then get trapped inside the pores and multiply. This causes swelling and redness — the start of acne.
Although for most it is a phase that clears up with time, some people continue suffering from acne breakouts due to excessive sebum production well into their adulthood. There could be many reasons: hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause), specific medications, certain cosmetic products, sun exposure, stress… Whatever the type or cause of acne… as the healthy glow goes away, so does our self-esteem.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology and specially trained experts provide safe, effective, and fast acting treatment to reduce mild to moderate acne. The Intense Pulsed Light destroys the bacteria present in acne skin while inhibiting future breakouts. The IPL also coagulates scar tissue, refining pores and improving skin healing and texture. Treatments can bring significant improvement to acne and acne scars often eliminating or reducing the need for acne medications. Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and clients feel little to no pain.
Treatment Program: The number of treatments varies depending on severity and should be spaced at 1-2 week intervals between sessions. Treatments are provided by a specially trained aesthetician, and the amount of time and cost vary depending on clients’ needs.
