ACNE SCARRING- IPL
Acne is one of the most common, yet hardest skin conditions to clear. Regardless of skin type or lifestyle, chances are most people will suffer from acne at some point in their lives. Acne is common in both teens and adults. Acne is a skin concern that emerges from the overproduction of oil by the skin’s oil glands. Whilst the oil normally lubricates the skin, it can sometimes get trapped in blocked oil ducts and appears as a pimple. Hormonal changes can also cause the enlargement and obstruction of sebaceous glands in the skin. This typically results in painful, inflamed lesions that can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs and virtually any other part of the body.
Pimples and acne are a widely recognised problem that all individuals encounter at least once in their lifetime. For many others, facial scars, acne scarring and blemishes profoundly impact on their self-confidence and contentment. Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can provide an effective acne treatment, as well a permanent solution to acne scarring. People find current treatment options ineffective and others develop problematic side effects. Additionally, the cost and duration of acne treatment with topical medications and oral antibiotics make standard therapy far from ideal.
