What causes Acne?
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone, androgen, which is produced by both men and women. The androgen hormone stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil causing the pores in the skin to become blocked preventing the oil from coming up to the surface of the skin. This leads to infection and the formation of the ‘spots’ we see on the surface of the skin.
What can we do about it?
IPL and blue light facials in conjunction with the recommended homecare, can help improve the appearance of active acne.
Usually 2 treatments in the same week will considerably reduce mild to moderate acne.
What about aftercare?
There may be some redness on your skin after the treatment. You are advised to stay out of the sun and follow our aftercare program. An oil free sunblock of SPF 30+ is to be applied daily for the duration of your treatments. You must continue with the medication and instructions your doctor has advised.
