How it works?
IPL Technology is Ideal for treating active acne. The P. acne bacteria produces porphyrins that absorb the light (peaking at 415 nm) and release singlet oxygen, that destroys the bacteria. Yellow wavelengths coagulate the small blood vessels which feed the acne lesions and dermal heating also contributes to the wound healing process. Treatment is fast and effective and can be performed during a ‘lunch-time’ procedure with no downtime. IPL Treatment for acne is recommended twice a week for over 4-6 weeks depending on the acne type.
Our Fractional laser effectively reduces unwanted acne scars. The laser ablates the skin by creating minute beams which are separated by healthy tissue.
The healthy tissue then expedites the wound healing process in which new collagen and elastin restore the skin’s texture and smoothness.
After assessing your acne grade and skin type a professional will determine the treatment plan you have to follow in order to get rid of acne. This might include a combination of treatments/procedures to get better results. Book your consultation now.

- Puberty (hormonal imbalance)
- Friction of the skin
- Environmental factors (humidity & air pollution)
FACTORS THAT CAUSE ACNE
Numerous factors contribute to the clogging of skin pores that contain sebaceous glands. Some factors that encourage the accumulation and eruption of acne are as follows:
Excessive Sebum Production: When sebum is overproduced by the sebaceous glands.
Hyperkeratinization: A condition where there is an abnormal increase in the production of keratin, leading to the blocking of skin pores.
Plug Formation (Microcomedone)
Microcomedones are responsible for the obstruction of hair follicles, resulting in the development of whiteheads. When the opening of the plug remains unclogged, it transforms into a blackhead.
- Breeding Ground for Propionibacterium
The blockage of hair follicle containing sebaceous gland when filled with
sebum and debris then bacterial growth thrives rapidly.
