There are several acne treatments from Therapie Clinic that can help reduce your acne problems and improve the appearance of your skin quite significantly. One of the most effective is Laser IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light.
How Does IPL Work for Acne?
The Intense Pulsed Light System releases a number of different colour lights in a series of short pulses. Depending on the colour of light and where it sits on the light spectrum, each targets a specific part of the acne.
The bacteria that have developed in the follicles which cause the skin irritation and swelling are targeted and destroyed. Red light bursts directly target the overactive sebaceous glands producing all the sebum causing the outbreaks, and the inflamed follicles are shrunk.
What Happens with IPL Treatment?
You’ll put on special eye protection during the treatment process, and then a layer of chilled gel is spread over the area to be treated to cool the skin.
The IPL laser is placed onto the skin and short pulses of light are released over the problem areas in tightly controlled, repeated processes until the whole area is treated. Then your skin specialist will remove the cooling gel and moisturise the area.
The duration of the treatment will depend on the size of the area to be covered; but it doesn’t take very long. The light energy is absorbed by the skin and feels like a very quick pinprick with each burst.
You may feel a warm sensation on your skin afterwards, sometimes redness occurs afterwards. This is completely normal, and a cooling pack will be applied to the skin. You need to avoid sun exposure or use a very high SPF for two weeks after the treatment.
Depending on the severity of your acne and the kind of blemishes involved, your skin specialist will combine the IPL with Glycolic Peel treatments for maximum effect. The number of treatments needed varies, but you’ll see significant improvement with each treatment.
