Acne has left millions of people with both physical and emotional scars. The IPL system works on treating active acne, the biggest breakthrough in the treatment of Acne for 20 years. How does the treatment work? A blue light is used to destroy the bacteria in acne (propiobacterium). This bacteria colonises the sebaceous gland and blocks it, causing acne. IPL irradiates the bacteria and gently heats up the skin around the spots, producing collagen that boosts the healing process. This acts as a new foundation for the skin, reducing scarring and improving skin tone. We recommend 2 treatments per week over a month period. Following this, we suggest clients have “top up” treatments. However, a treatment plan will be devised by the IPL specialist.
