ACNE TREATMENT

Acne affects up to 50 million North Americans annually, making it the most common skin condition in U.S. and Canada. Unfortunately, breakouts can occur at any stage of life – clinical studies have shown that 40 – 50% of adults aged 20 to 40 are diagnosed with low-grade acne and oily skin. Aside from the physical effects of acne, the condition can also have an impact on emotional and psychological well-being. 

For acne treatments, an AC Dual applicator uses IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to simultaneously address both the cause and visible symptoms of acne. Dual light treatment includes a blue light and a red light. The Blue light targets porphyria, the most common acne-causing bacteria. The blue light leads to the destruction of the bacteria, while the red light controls inflammation and promotes faster healing. This treatment also shrinks the sebaceous glands to stop the overproduction of oils that cause acne, preventing future breakouts, and helping to eliminate current ones. 

Many clients choose to combine IPL with Skin Resurfacing to both clear skin and eliminate acne scarring. The two treatments combined, work effectively to pull deep pigmentation and unwanted superficial scarring, and to rebalance acne-prone skin. They will keep your complexion glowing, collagen stimulated and acne at bay. The number of IPL treatments required will vary depending on the severity of the acne.
