A long-term solution to acne.
Suitable for treatment of acne concerns to the face and neck.
Quick and effective with minimal risk and downtime.
Visible results after just a few sessions.
IPL Acne Treatment is a clinically proven treatment to reduce the appearance of acne on the face and neck area.
We use the World-Renowned Ellipse Laser System which delivers controlled, short pulses of filtered light which is used to slow down the overproduction of oil in the sebaceous glands that leads to acne.
A consultation is required to allow the aesthetician to take a complete medical history to confirm suitability for treatment. A patch test will be carried out and an appointment will be made if you wish to have the treatment. During the treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and a thin layer of gel is applied to the skin. The light applicator is placed on to the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The sensation is similar to an elastic band with mild discomfort. This process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The gel is removed and an SPF is applied to the skin. We recommend SPF30 should be used for at least 30 days post treatment.
*£20 charge for test patch.
We recommend a course of at least three treatments; however, the aesthetician will determine this during consultation after a discussion about your individual skin concerns. During a course of treatments, treatments are carried out every 3 weeks. Top-up treatments are recommended to maintain results.
The treated skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after treatment, but this usually subsides within 24- 48 hours. Recommended aftercare will be given.
