ACNE SCARRING REDUCTION

Dual-Light Acne Treatment uses IPL(Intense Pulsed Light) to simultaneously address both the cause and visible symptoms of acne. During a Dual-Light Acne Treatment, blue light targets the porphyrin produced by Propionibacterium Acnes bacteria, leading to destruction of the bacteria, while the longer wavelength of red light controls inflammation and promotes faster healing. While traditional treatments focus on either the cause or the visible symptoms of the skin condition, this acne treatment targets both, resulting in greater clinical outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.The machine used is equipped with a real-time cooling system for optimal patient safety and comfort.

Quick treatment sessions last around 20 minutes.

8-10 treatments are typically recommended.

Typically done twice a week, leaving 3-4 days in between treatments.

No downtime. 

Noticeable results after 6 treatments.

2-4 maintenance sessions per year.

ACNE SCARRING REDUCTION

Acne scar removal focuses light on the top layers of your skin in short pulses to break up scar tissue. At the same time, the treatment encourages new, healthy skin cells to grow and replace the scar tissue.

15-30 Minutes.

Most patients receive 3-4 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated. However, test spot(s) must be done prior to the treatment series.

  • Face/neck: one treatment every 4 weeks.
  • Body: One treatment every 4-8 weeks. Treatments done on the body take longer to heal/epithelized.
Yes, but only for 24 hours post-treatment (or up to 5 days for more aggressive treatments). Your skin will be red and sensitive for the first 24 hours. After 24 hours, you may put on makeup and resume your regular skin care routine. You should always apply sunscreen (at least SPF 30) to maintain your results and prevent sun damage. Avoid vigorous exercise and hot baths or massages on the treatment area for the first 2 days after your session. Make sure to keep your skin clean and protected from the sun. Avoid any sort of tanning.

Although you can see improvement in the texture and tone of the skin within the first week, it will take approximately 3 months for the final results to be apparent.

After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve. However, one touch-up session may be needed approximately every 6 months, depending on how your skin responds. If acne has not subsided, we encourage our acne treatment to prevent new scars and acne from forming.

FAQ

Treatment information about Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

For IPL hair removal, it depends on what part of the body you’re getting treated. If it’s a smaller area, it may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes.
You’ll likely need 6-10 treatments per area. Hair grows in different stages and at different rates for everyone, so it depends again on each individual person and the area being treated.
Treatments can be done at most, every 2 weeks, though it is suggested 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.
Little to no downtime! Avoid Sun exposure in the area for 3-4 weeks after treatment. We recommend waiting at least 24 hours after a laser hair removal treatment before attempting any activity that may excessively increase your body temperature. I.e., hot showers, strenuous exercise.
The day of your treatment, your current hair cycle will be killed by the IPL light. You may notice the stubble hairs look ‘frazzled’ afterwards. It will take around 10-18 days before the hair falls out. This is when you begin to see results for that hair cycle. 
  • The hair that is permanently destroyed will NEVER come back. However, everyone’s bodies generate new hair in different follicles as hormones change and time goes on. Because of this, maintenance hair removal may need to be done at some point in the future, but the frequency of maintenance is different per person.
  • 4 times a year/ typically once every 3 months.
