What is IPL Acne treatment?
Intense, pulsed, broad-spectrum light for acne treatment is targets pigmented cells by destroying the common bacteria that causes acne. IPL allows focused light to reduce the acne-causing bacteria in your pores, without any of the astringent chemicals of other acne treatments. This procedure can leave you with clearer skin in as little as one treatment.* We use this procedure to combat the stressful and unsightly bumps and pimples that come with chronic acne. This technique is unique in that it uses no chemicals. A high-intensity, but totally comfortable light is used to blast acne-causing bacteria into oblivion. Clearer skin shouldn’t have to be difficult to obtain, and you shouldn’t have to suffer with persistent acne. Call or visit our DeSoto Texas Spa today for the clearer, healthier skin you deserve.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that commonly develops when skin cells do not shed properly. In essence, we get acne when the skin cells that refuse to shed stick together and clog up pores. We like to remind our patients that the pore clogging that leads acne is caused by not one, but a combination of factors. These factors can trigger or aggravate an existing case of acne:
- Hormones: Puberty, aging, pregnancy, and other hormonal shifts often result in acne outbreaks on the face and body.
- Medication: Changes in medication can often cause chemical imbalances similar to the hormonal shifts that cause acne. If acne is a side-effect of a medication you are taking, don’t hunt another medicine, just have the acne removed by us.
- Stress: Any teenager can attest to this one, and so can anyone who has lived through their teen years with frequent breakouts. Stress causes many negative health effects, and skin blemishes like acne are seen frequently.
- Diet: Unhealthy eating habits, especially large intake of greasy or oily foods can also lead to acne breakouts. Fortunately, your diet and weight loss is also something we can help you with.
Why Choose IPL Acne Treatment?
IPL works within a series of gentle pulses that uses specific wavelengths in order to deliver the precise amount of light to penetrate the skin’s surface. This procedure is typically performed in 30 minutes or less, causing little-to-no discomfort.* Light energy is absorbed into targeted cells of the skin that is ultraviolet safe and has no significant side effects. This safe, effective treatment is beginning to become the standard by which all other acne treatments are judged. Its that good. We know you’ll be happy with your results, whether you’re seeking IPL for acne treatments or for something else.
Other Uses for IPL Treatment:
- Vascular lesions
- Large pores
- Brown spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
