Don’t let Acne define who you are – We have a solution

WHAT IS IPL ACNE THERAPY?

IPL Acne Therapy is an effective pulsed light that is revolutionizing the treatment of acne. The IPL Acne Therapy treatments destroy the most common bacteria that cause acne – without drugs, without pain and without downtime.

IPL, “Intense Pulsed Light” is one of the safest acne treatments available.  It has been proven to be extremely effective on moderate to severe inflammatory acne. Its technology uses light that is UV-safe and has no known side effects. It is recommended that people with photosensitivity should first consult with their physician.

What to Expect

Clients will see the best results of the IPL Acne Therapy after a series of 6 treatments.  They may notice some progress after the first treatment; however, it is important to continue your treatments on schedule.  Combining your IPL Acne Therapy with a series of peels between each treatment will yield far better results.

Your IPL Acne Therapy Technician with recommend a customized home care regime.  It is important that you follow your regime and use the products recommended so your Technician can monitor your progress.

Using products your Technician is not familiar with, can be counter productive and in some cases make your acne worse.

Acne Breakouts

An acne breakout starts in the skin’s pores. It can take about two to three weeks before a blemish shows up on the skin’s surface. Deep within each pore is a sebaceous gland that works to produce sebum, an oil that keeps skin soft and moist. As the skin renews itself, old skin cells die and are shed off. Under the best circumstances, this happens evenly and gradually, making way for fresh new skin.

 

Occasionally skin sheds unevenly and as a result, dead cells mix with sebum and form a sticky blockage. This blockage traps oil and bacteria inside the pore – the beginning of a blemish. During puberty, hormones accelerate oil-producing sebaceous glands into hyperdrive, putting teen skin at particular risk for acne.

What not to do:

* Don’t over wash or use harsh scrubs. Acne is not caused by dirt.

* Don’t use alcohol-based products. Alcohol strips the top layer of the skin and many astringents contain alcohol which can cause dryness and irritation.

* Beware of sweat. Working out heats up the body, and perspiration makes the skin an even more attractive environment for acne bacteria to grow.

* Don’t squeeze or pick. It’s important to adopt a strict “hands off” policy when it comes to acne. Picking can lead to more inflammation and permanent scarring.

* Don’t let acne define you. Remember that who you are goes beyond the condition of your skin.

* Don’t let another day go by without taking action – life’s too short to let your acne keep impacting you!
