Why should I take acne treatment?

Acne is very common in adolescents, but can appear for the first time in the mid twenties, or even later, and persist in a significant number of people through their forties or even fifties.
Severe acne can have a huge psychological impact. It can destroy your self-confidence and even shape the way you live your life. Unfortunately the vast majority of conventional acne treatments focus on the symptoms – i.e. helping to reduce inflammation and infection – not the cause of acne.

What does acne treatment involve?

Acne treatment involves the use of intense pulse light. The light emitted from Intense Pulsed Light system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions, and lessening the inflammation and occurrence of breakouts the light stimulates the production of collagen to improve skin texture, and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.

How is the treatment carried out?

A layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to help guide the light. The light guide is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is passed over the skin before moving onto the neighbouring area, and the process is repeated until the whole area is treated. Each pulse of light treats a large area of skin. The gel is removed and the skin is moisturised. During treatment protective eyewear is provided.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Almost everyone can be treated, apart from very dark skinned or tanned individuals. If you are pregnant or taking Roaccutane (an acne medication) it is best not to undergo laser or Intense Pulsed Light treatment.
