Acne isn’t only a problem for teenagers. It’s a common problem among adults, too. It’s caused by plugged skin pores that become infected with bacteria. Standard acne treatments like oral and topical medications often produce unreliable and unsatisfactory results. Oral medications can cause unpleasant systemic side effects. Topical acne preparations may leave the skin dry, red, and irritated.
IPL Light Treatment
Our team at Elite Medical Aesthetics offers acne treatment in the Murfreesboro area and surrounding communities. We would like to introduce to you a newer and better way to treat acne. It’s called IPL, which stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL uses intense flashes of light to help dramatically improve the appearance of acne-affected skin. IPL is non-invasive. It penetrates deep into the skin’s tissues without harming them. It’s a fast, painless procedure. An IPL session typically lasts about 30 minutes. After that, the patient can resume normal activities. It’s certainly easier and far less expensive than surgery.
As the IPL device sends targeted flashes of light into the skin’s affected areas, it reduces inflammation, kills bacteria and may reduce sebum levels. When there is too much sebum or skin oil, it’s more likely that pores will become blocked, producing conditions that can lead to acne. You may see improvement after only one treatment. However, you can expect to require anywhere from four to six sessions for optimal results. There will be a resting period of at least seven days in between treatment sessions. Your Elite Aesthetics professional will determine the right schedule of IPL treatments for you.
