Acne Treatments with IPL
Acne most commonly develops when skin cells don’t shed properly – the cells stick together and plug up the pores. This blockage encourages an oil called sebum and a bacteria called propionibacterium (P. acnes) to build up in the skin pores, leading to inflammation. At Advanced Dermatology Care, our IPL Acne Therapy is an effective light-based therapeutic therapy that revolutionized the treatment of acne.
The IPL Acne Therapy destroys the most common bacteria that cause acne — without drugs, without pain and with zero downtime. IPL, “Intense Pulse Light” is one of the safest acne treatments available today.
The treatment is proven to be extremely effective on moderate inflammatory acne. The IPL technology uses light that is UV-safe and has no known side effects.
Most of the patients will notice the improvement in their skin a few days following their first treatment.
