IPL Acne Treatment
IPL is an ideal drug-free treatment for mild and moderate inflammatory acne, for which we get remarkable results. Acne is very often caused by internal factors such as hormonal imbalance, stress and food allergies. Ideally, the treatment should be combined with methods to deal with the underlying problem in order to clear the acne permanently.
This is a wonderful treatment for clearing an annoying spot or boil, especially before an important event where looking good is essential. In this case it would be best to use the treatment a week before the special date. It is also great for anyone with permanent acne, as they will greatly benefit from regular treatments.
Angelite systems provide very satisfactory results in the treatment of mild and moderate inflammatory acne, by reducing the number of pulses and pustules by 60-65%. This is achieved using three effective, safe and reliable clinical mechanisms: visible blue light absorption to destroy the bacteria, yellow light to coagulate the feeding blood vessels and infrared light to dry the lesions. The innovative and advanced IPL system filters light from a flash lamp in two targeted ways to ensure that only light with the appropriate wavelength is allowed to reach the skin to prevent future acne. Haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, absorbs this light and heats up in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes minor injury to the sebaceous glands, which decreases the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.
This solution to dealing with acne is easy and essentially painless, as any potentially harmful wavelengths are filtered out by our advanced IPL system.
Preparation before an IPL Acne treatment. You do not need to do anything in order to prepare for treatments. However, in the weeks leading up to your appointment, it is important that you should avoid exposure to the sun, as your skin must be kept as pale as possible. This is to prevent too much light from being absorbed by a darker complexion.
Post IPL Acne treatment. Although there may be some redness on your skin after the treatment, people do not normally need any post treatment care. However, some people with more sensitive skin may ease any discomfort by applying ice or aloe vera to the area immediately after the treatment. In the case of sun-damaged skin, some of the pigmented spots may become darker, but they will eventually disappear.
