Acne Treatment

Acne header

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the skin in which the sebaceous glands become clogged and infected, often causing the formation of pimples, especially on the face. It is most common in adolescence but can also occur in infants and adults.

IPL intensed pulsed light treatment can treat acne by targeting the redness and swelling caused by the bacteria. This treatment also shrinks the sebaceous glands which then decrease the oil production in your skin. Side effects of this treatment may include temporary redness, crusting and peeling of the treated areas you may be asked by the doctor to start a course of antibiotics before and during the treatment, but this will be discussed in the consultation.

You will need to have a number of treatments to treat the condition. The amount is different for each individual, but we advise a minimum of 4-6 treatments at 4-6 week intervals.
