Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an ideal acne scar treatment suitable for most people, apart from very dark skinned individuals.
The light emitted from the IPL system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions, and lessening the inflammation and occurrence of breakouts. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, and can reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.
Treatments cannot be carried out if you have a suntan or have used fake tan within 4 weeks of your appointment. Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation to obtain your medical history and determine suitability. If you are currently taking Roaccutane please wait 6 months before commencing your treatment.
If you are suitable for treatment you will then be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch your Technician will then advise when you can commence your treatments.
Typically 6 treatments are required at fortnightly intervals. Results will be enhanced with a course of Microdermabrasion to complement.
Your Technician will also answer any questions you may have during your consultation.
