What is acne?
Acne is a condition of the skin that is characterised by papules, redness, nodules, clogged pores and pimples. There are several types of acne, each of which presents varying symptoms. Acne is not only uncomfortable, but can leave scars and cause significant psychological damage. The causes of acne can be attributed to hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, stress, diet and bacterial infection. Acne can often last for years due to treatment resistance and infection.
What is Intense Pulsed Light?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can be used for the treatment of skin conditions or the removal of hair. In the case of acne, it uses heat and light energy to stimulate cellular tissues, such as collagen and elastin, for effective skin rejuvenation. At Elite Body Treatments we use the Bodilite Ultra Pulsed Light machine for acne treatment, rosacea treatment, and the improvement of scars.
How does IPL work as an acne and rosacea treatment?
One of the major contributors to acne is bacteria. The open wounds that accompany the condition allow for bacteria to be easily spread, causing further inflammation that requires a longer treatment program. Intense Pulsed Light targets the bacterial layer underneath the epidermis to fight infection directly, reducing the formation of active acne cysts. In doing this, our acne and rosacea treatment can significantly improve even severe cases of acne.
Why is IPL the best treatment for acne scars?
In addition to treating active acne, IPL can be used as a treatment for acne scars. The targeted light pulses work to improve the appearance of acne scarring, balancing skin tone and removing imperfections through the stimulation of collagen and elastin growth.
