Many factors contribute towards the blockage of the skin pores containing
sebaceous glands. Few factors which promote acne buildup and outbreak are following:

Sebum when produced in excess.
The hyperkeratinization contribute to pilosebaceous gland by excessive growth of the skin layers which may lead to forced closure of folide.
- Plug Formation (Microcomedone)
The microcomedone cause the blockage of the hair follicle and raised in the form of a whitehead. If the top of the plug is not closed it forms a black head.
- Breeding Ground for Propionibacterium
The blockage of hair follicle containing sebaceous gland when filled with
sebum and debris then bacterial growth thrives rapidly.

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.
