Acne

Reduce acne, general outbreaks and decongest your skin with a unique tri fruit acid peel and light treatment combination.


Intense Pulse Light (IPL) can aid in reducing excess oil production by targeting the

overactive sebaceous glands, combat inflammation the source of the outbreak, whilst

also reducing the redness and post inflammatory pigmentation associated with

outbreaks.

Procedure

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 applicator is passed over the skin

several times before moving onto the neighbouring area, and the process is repeated until the

whole area is treated. Each pulse of light treats a large area of skin and so the duration of the

treatment is very short. The gel is removed, and the skin is moisturised. During treatment

protective eye wear will be provided.
