How the IPL Treatment Works
Acne can be caused when pores become blocked by over production of sebum and dead skin cells. Once pores are blocked bacteria can build up and cause infection. This can result in acne.
Skin naturally produces a chemical caused porphyrin to fight the internal bacteria that causes acne. This light therapy works by killing the bacteria, it also effectively reduces the inflammation associated with acne.
Acne caused by bacteria is reduced significantly following a course of treatments and skin texture and tone is improved as light therapy also initiates further collagen production.

Is it painful?
It’s not painful, but if the acne is sore then the treatment can be a little uncomfortable.

How often do the treatments take place?
Treatments take place at 3- 4 weekly intervals and usually 3-6 treatments are necessary to achieve optimum results. However, treatments are priced individually, so clients can stop when they feel happy with the results.
