IPL Facial for Acne

What is Involved?

Acne is a common skin condition that is the bug bear of many, with many solutions on the market that over promise but under deliver. IPL can provide extremely effective relief from the symptoms of active acne. While the excessive production of sebum result in pores becoming blocked, it is actually the presence of bacteria on our skin that can result in inflamed infected & angry looking spots. When the bacteria responsible for acne proliferate, the results can be red and very sore & unsightly spots. IPL technology has been around for decades with technologies becoming even more advanced & effective as the years have passed.

IPL is incredibly effective at eliminating the bacteria present in skin, killing the activity within the spot or pustule whilst stimulating the body’s natural healing process by way of collagen formation, clears your skin quickly & effectively.

What’s Included ?

After consultation your laser specialist will apply a cooling gel to skin. The IPL technology will be placed onto skin to target the bacteria, eliminating them from the surface of the affected areas. The laser light gently heats up the surrounding tissue stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. This encourages the skin to repair the damage, the combination of this rids the skin of bacteria and heal the wound. Resulting in a much clearer complexion & more robust dermis, helping to protect the skin going forward. The advantage of this type of treatment is the speed with which it can be carried out, with treatments every week, resulting in much clearer skin within just a few weeks.
