IPL Anti-Acne

Acne can be successfully treated with Intense Pulsed Light alone or in combination with other clinical treatments. Intense Pulsed Light treatments greatly reduce the number and severity of active lesions, lessening the inflammation and frequency of break-outs. Almost everyone can be treated, apart from very dark skinned or tanned individuals. If you are pregnant or taking Roaccutane (an acne medication) it is best not to undergo intense pulsed light.

We use a Lynton Lumina for all our Laser and IPL treatments. It is a medical grade Laser so you can be confident of the best possible results after your treatment. Our staff have undergone industry leading training in all the treatments we offer.

Clinically approved for the treatment of :

  • Reduce inflammation of active breakouts
  • Improve congested skin
  • Reduce oilyness

FAQ'S

What is IPL Anti-Acne ?

The light emitted from the Intense Pulsed Light system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions, and lessening the inflammation and occurrence of break-outs. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.

What will happen during my treatment?

A layer of gel is applied to the skin. The applicator is passed over the skin several times before moving onto the neighbouring area during which short bursts of light are released, the process is repeated until the whole area is treated. Each pulse of light treats a large area of skin and so the duration of the treatment is very short. The gel is removed and the skin is moisturised. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

What should I expect after my treatment?

Immediately after treatment the skin may appear red and a warm tingling sensation may be felt. Typically the skin is cooled to ease any discomfort and a calming gel is applied. The treated area can become quite red immediately after treatment but this usually disappears within a couple of hours. Most people experience no other side effects but very rarely a small blister could form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, but typically 6 Intense Pulsed Light and 6 exfoliating treatments will result in a significant improvement.

Consultation Procedure
