    About IPL Acne Control

    How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) work?

    • The light emitted from the 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 break-outs. The light stimulates the production of new 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.

    Who is suitable for the Treatment?

    • This is a safe procedure which can be performed on Men and Women including teenagers suffering from mild to moderate Acne.

    Who is not suitable for the Treatment?

    • Cancer
    • Pregnancy
    • If you have cystic Acne this treatment is not suitable, and it may be advisable to see a dermatologist.
    • Very dark skin
    • Sun tan/use of sun beds and fake tan
    • Healing disorders such as those caused by Diabetes Mellitus and lupus
    • History of Keloid scarring
    • Pigment disorders such as Melasma
    • Recent use of Roacutane
    • Immune, lymphatic system disorders

    Consultation procedure

    • Prior to the treatment, you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding, you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

    What steps are involved in the Treatment?

    • Your skin is cleansed & Massaged with the highest strength of Salicylic Acid, this will prepare the skin for IPL/Laser. It will bring the skin to PH balance without being abrasive or irritating on the skin.
    • An oxygen infusion treatment is then carried out. An oxy infusion cream is applied with a Catalase Anhydro Gel which helps with the destruction of peroxides & helps soften & exfoliate the skin.
    • 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 several times 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 and so the duration of the treatment is very short.
    • The gel is removed and a Menthol Mask is applied onto the skin.
    • The treatment is finished off with an antibacterial peptide cream.
    • Your skin will be left feeling cleaner and clearer with inflammation & redness reduced.
    • There is no down-time involved, you do not need to give your skin time to heal.

    How long does the treatment take?

    • A typical treatment session is approximately 20-30 minutes.

    How does the treatment feel?

    • Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but no anaesthesia is required. All of our patients tolerate the treatment very well and some find the treatment relaxing.

    How many treatments are required?

    • The treatment is done gradually over a period of time, although you will see results after the first session.
    • We recommend a minimum of 6 treatments spaced out every 2 weeks.
    • Tailored homecare products recommended by the therapist should be used to enhance the clinic treatments.

    Are there any possible side effects?

    • Your skin will be slightly red and tender after the treatment. other than that there’s no real downtime involved.
    • We do not treat very dark skin as there may be risks of complications such as hyper & hypo-pigmentation.
    • On Male clients there may be some hair removal that could be permanent.
