Treating acne with IPL or IPL/RF technology is all about fighting the propioni bacteria that cause the inflammation and reducing the size of the sebaceous glands and the quantity of sebum they produce. Porphyrins (naturally occurring molecules in the inflamed acne) absorb light in the blue wavelength spectrum. When Porphyrins absorb light in this wavelength spectrum, heat is produced. The photothermal process releases chemical substances that are able to selectively destroy the propioni bacterium.
Treatment: You may experience tingling of e skin, redness and erythema with a deep warming sensation.
Results: The acne will subside and skin clear.
For best results it is recommended that a course of 6-8 treatments performed on a weekly basis with a follow up treatment every 6-8 weeks to maintain the results.
