Acne is not a condition that only affects teenagers. Genetics, hormones at different stages of life, health, environment and stress can all lead to acne outbreaks. The severity can range from mild blackheads, which is essentially an opening in the skin that is filled with debris, bacteria and oil, to severe inflammation with cysts that form deeper in the skin.
Acne can appear anywhere on the body but is mainly seen on the face, chest and back. Whilst the more severe type presenting with cystic acne will certainly benefit from a multi-treatment programme combining skincare specific to problematic skin, IPL acne treatments can certainly help to minimise the severity by slowing down the overall production of oil that results from increased sebaceous gland activity.
The light targets the protein found in the bacteria associated with acne, thus controlling and minimising outbreaks. Results are excellent but the IPL acne treatment may need to be ongoing if the cause is hormonal in nature. IPL treatment for acne is recommended at 1-3 weekly intervals.
