Acne Vulgaris and Rosacea Clearance Treatment

Acne Vulgaris and Rosacea Clearance Treatment

Acne vulgaris is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea (scaly red skin),comedones (blackheads and white heads), papules, pustules, nodules and possibly scarring.

Rosacea and Acne Vulgaris

IPL machines offer one of the best treatments for rosacea and acne vulgaris, in particular the erythema (redness) of the skin. They use light to penetrate the epidermis to target the capillaries in the dermis layer of the skin. The light is absorbed by oxy-hemoglobin which heat up causing the capillary walls to heat up to 70 °C (158 °F), damaging them, causing them to be absorbed by the body’s natural defense mechanism.
IPL treatment works similarly to antibiotics used for acne with the difference that there are no side effects in IPL (no causing harmful effects on liver, stomach etc.). Therefore IPL+RF treatments are completely safe procedure.
Clinic studies show that IPL+RF treatments achieve up to three times better and faster results in acne than with traditional methods (reduction of acne lesions – 60%-80% after a series). Amazing results can be achieved by this method in the treatment of acne with purulent changes.

Description:

The IPL system releases 3 kind of light ( yellow, green and red)  that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow and green light destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause acne, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This targeted goes deep in the skin causes shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands and helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum.
Before the treatment you?ll be asked to put on goggles to protect your eyes. A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to cool the skin and guide the light. The light applicator is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released.
The applicator is then moved to the neighboring area and the process is repeated. At the end, the chilling gel is removed and the area is moisturized.
