How does intense pulsed light work?

The light emitted from the intense pulsed light system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number of severity of active lesions, and lessoning the inflammation and occurrence of breakouts. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.

How is the treatment carried out?

A layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to help guide the light. The light guide is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The application is passed over the sksin several times before moving onto the neighbouring area, and the process is repeated until the whole area is treated. Each pulse of the light treats a large area of skin and so the duration of treatment is very short. The gel is removed and the skin is moisturised. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.
