IPL Acne Treatment

How does it work

Our acne treatment gets straight to the root of the problem. This unique treatment uses specifically selected wavelengths and optimised pulse duration and shape. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, which then heats the area producing a minor reaction to the sebaceous glands. This in turn slows down the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general.

Does it hurt?

The procedure is non-invasive since the applicator only lightly touches the skin's surface, making it relatively painless. Tolerance of pain is very individual but it has been described by many as the warm feeling one has after a day on the beach.

Course of 4 recommended 3 weeks apart

Patch test and consultation is essential before treatment

There are many myths about the cause of acne.  Some people think that the incidence of acne is higher if you eat foods like choclate or French fries.  Others think the presence of acne is due to poor hygiene. Neither is true.

Acne is caused by the body's increased production of the hormone androgen, which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil.  The increased productinon of oil cannot come up to the skin surface.  The acne itself is an infection caused by the skin's bacteria that feed on the break down of oil.  As the bacteria multiply, waste products and sebacic acid are created and the sebaceous gland becomes inflamed - causing what is known as a blackhead, a whitehead or a pimple.
