How does IPL treatment for acne work?

Acne can be caused by overactive sebaceous glands and it is these that are targeted by the light emitted from the IPL system. The light is transformed into heat within the skin, and this is directed at these precise glands, destroying them and reducing their number. This also helps to reduce the severity of active lesions, as well as reducing skin inflammation and the occurrence of break-outs.

Acne can also damage the skin cells and IPL treatments can provide a very effective solution. The lightwaves are able to stimulate the production and growth of new collagen cells, which can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of red or brown skin discolouration associated with acne scars and breakouts.

Successful results for cystic acne

Cystic acne is painful to the touch and is caused by fluid-filled cysts that are embedded into and under the skin. While standard acne treatments can not resolve cystic acne, an IPL treatment offers the perfect solution. The light waves penetrate the skin tissue to get right to the source of infection and inflammation, destroying the cyst and helping to restore your skin.

Take targeted and specific action

While many acne treatments involve applying a topical treatment, like a chemical peel for example, IPL treatments for acne actually work beneath the surface of the skin, and only target the specific, localized area. This means that there is no damage to otherwise healthy skin cells and you will not experience as many side effects. IPL treatment is also non-invasive, unlike steroid injections or other acne treatments, and has less side effects than oral medication.

Fast and effective

IPL treatment is a quick treatment that does not require any downtime or recovery, with the only side effect being slightly red skin for a few hours. The results are also noticeable quickly, with truly transformational results after just a few sessions.
