A non-invasive Intense Pulsed Light treatment used to reduce acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium and sebaceous gland size and/or function. Aesthetic outcome can be enhanced when combined with topical or oral medications and peels. Studies show that this wavelength of IPL improves red macules, irregular pigmentation and improves inflammatory acne lesions.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
The painless treatment involves a short appointment where blue light IPL is done. Generally, 2-3 sessions per week over a 4-week period is required for blemishes to disappear and skin to regain its normal appearance. Blue light treatment comes with very few side effects and may include slight irritation or redness that resolve quickly.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Blue light treatment has been used safely and effectively in the treatment of acne alone or in combination with topical and some oral medications to synergize their effects. Blue light can also be used in combination with red light therapy and is a great add on to peels and microdermabrasion.
