IPL Acne Treatment The Acne Problem Acne is a disorder of the skin’s sebaceous glands that results in plugged pores, inflammation, bacterial infection leading to papules, pustules, ysts and sometimes permanent scarring of the skin. Being one of the most common skin diseases, over 80% of the population aged 14-30 will suffer from it regardless of gender, geography or skin type, and 25% of these will have permanent scars. Though commonly considered as a teenager problem and usually beginning in adolescence, 20% of all adults suffer from varying degrees of active acne. For some, it is simply annoying. For many others however, acne is a significant problem that has a high impact on their lifestyle and quality of life. There is no single disease which causes more psychic trauma, more maladjustment between parents and children, more general insecurity and feelings of nferiority and greater sums of psychic suffering than does acne vulgaris –Sulzberger & Zaldems.

How IPL Acne Treatment Works:
Hyperkeratinization that follows hormonal changes increases the sebum production, resulting in a blocked pore. The Anaerobic situation creates the perfect environment for the P. Acnes bacterium to reproduce colonies and release porphyrin.
Optimal light wavelength especially green and red penetrates into the follicle to target the P. Acnes by triggering porphyrin activation. The Green Light causes the porphyrin molecules to release oxygen radicals. The oxygen radical attacks the acne bacteria and destroys it.
The Red Light produces anti-nflammatory results. The Heat opens the pores and speeds up the chemical reaction.
