Acne Treatments Through IPL Or Pure Light
Acne is the most common skin problem, affecting not only teenagers, but up to 80% of people in their 20s and 30s. This stubborn condition is typically treated with oral and tropical medications, which can produce good results but often with undesirable side effects.
Break outs, pimples or zits as we call them are mostly a sign of hormonal imbalances.
In women with acne, when they ovulate the egg is not secreted properly and as a result the body sends out too many male hormones which cause acne around the chin, chest & back.
The other cause of acne is from the obstruction and inflammation of the sebaceous follicles. Acne stems from an abnormal amount of bacteria (PROPIONIBACTERIUM acnes) also named P.acne.
Pulsed Light offers an effective alternative to conventional acne treatment using concentrated light pulses which attack acne on two fronts:
Destroys acne bacteria for a quick clearance of current acne breakouts.Penetrates into the hyperactive sebaceous glands to slow down the production of sebum which can clog pores and cause future acne breakouts.The result is a faster resolution of current breakouts without any drug-related side effects.
You can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with gel or ice packs.
There may be an initial flare-up of acne, similar to the kind seen after a peel procedure or the kind seen after a peel procedure or the beginning of a new topical or oral acne medication. Some of the blemishes may appear redder. They will then fade after 2-3 weeks. A reduction in the number of lesions and the prevention of new lesion formation can be expected following your treatment course.
This therapy is both natural & non invasive. Unlike lasers or IPL devices Purelight targets bacteria without thermally affecting the surrounding tissues therefore sebaceous glands will return to their natural state. We use the award winning Canadian system, Dermapod to help fight acne prone skin. We use magenta light favored for purifying and anti bacterial properties. This penetrates up to 420 nm. It’s a 3 stage program 5-10 minutes a stage depending on the severity of acne. A slight redness may appear at the end of each treatment which may last 30-90 minutes.
