How Does IPL Work?
IPL Acne Therapy is a safe, effective treatment for most skin types. It has been proven to be highly effective in treating mild to moderate inflammatory acne. The handpiece employs a broad spectrum of light that attacks acne in two ways: targeting acne bacteria and hyperactive sebaceous glands by heating the blood vessels around them. The sebaceous glands are altered to reduce acne lesions. IPL Acne Therapy offers acne improvement without the many side effects that are associated with other acne treatments. Most patients need multiple treatments to achieve satisfactory results.
What Can Be Expected After the treatment?
After IPL Acne Therapy, the skin might have some redness and may feel warm. There is little downtime associated with IPL. Patients can apply makeup the following day, and most daily activities can be resumed after treatment. As with most treatments, it is important to wear daily sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure following the treatment as your skin will be sensitive to UV rays.
