Weekly Transformations -IPL for acne

Most people know about IPL for getting rid of hair but some IPL systems can also be used to help with your skin concerns. IPL is very effective at helping this suffering with Acne. 

IPL for treating acne

The IPL system emits pulses of yellow, green and red light. These work to kill spot-causing bacteria. The red light targets the overactive sebaceous glands that block pores and cause outbreaks. IPL treatment also stimulates collagen production in the area to help improve the appearance and texture of the skin surface.

How many treatments will I need?

A course of 3-4 treatments is usually recommended at 2-3 week intervals to achieve the best results. Treatment will help to reduce inflammation, skin looks less red and angry.

Will it hurt?

You may feel slight discomfort during the session, but it is not painful at all. A cooling cryo-handset is applied to the skin beforehand, to ensure your comfort.

This client was suffering mainly with boil-like spots beneath the skin with some moderate outbreaks on the surface. 3 sessions helped to reduced the inflammation under the skin and stop the outbreaks.
