Acne Treatment

Acne can be effectively treate 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 the break-outs!

How does the treatment work?

The light emitted from the intese pulsed light system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions, and lessening the inflamation and occurance of break-outs. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improce skin texture, and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne break-outs.

Almost everyone can be treated with this treatment, apart from very dark skinned or tanned individuals. If you are pregnant or taking Roaccutane (acne medication) it is best not to undergo laser or intense pulsed light treatment.
