Blue Light IPL Acne Therapy
Blue light kills the acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes, which can cause inflammation. P. acnes bacteria are sensitive to blue light. Using the blue light eliminates the bacteria found in the oil glands in the skin. The added deep treatment with IPL causes the oil glands to shrink in size. The result is less oil in the skin and less bacteria, leading to the resolution of acne in the treated areas.
Why Is It Effective?
Eliminating the bacteria from the skin with help from blue light decreases the inflammation associated with red pimples (papules) seen in acne. After a number of treatments, the blemishes disappear and skin regains its normal appearance.
SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion Skin Clarifying Treatment for acne helps to improve inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne blemishes. Through the use of salicylic acid, this treatment unclogs follicles and addresses inflammation caused by P. acnes bacteria, resulting in faster healing of acne lesions. The Dermalinfusion clarifying treatment is highly effective due to the combination of
- Exfoliating damaged and irritated skin away
- Cleansing the skin and follicles of excess sebum and P. acnes buildup
- Delivering anti-microbial active ingredients down to the base of the follicle where acne lesions develop.
Our licensed esthetician can also target areas of skin that are not easily treated with topical solutions, such as the shoulders, back and the backs of the arms.
