Effective in treating acne and reducing the associated redness and inflammation.
During an IPL acne therapy session, a handheld device emits a broad spectrum of light wavelengths onto the targeted area of the skin. The light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by specific targets, such as excess melanin or blood vessels. In the case of acne treatment, IPL targets the bacteria responsible for acne, called Propionibacterium acnes, as well as the redness and inflammation associated with acne breakouts.
The heat generated by the absorbed light helps destroy the bacteria and constrict the blood vessels, reducing inflammation and redness. Additionally, IPL therapy stimulates collagen production, promoting skin rejuvenation and an improvement in overall skin texture.
It’s worth noting that IPL acne therapy is typically performed in a series of sessions to achieve optimal results. The exact number of treatments required depends on individual factors such as the severity of the acne and the desired outcome.
