Pimples and acne are incredibly common for teenagers. Even adults can experience this skin condition, which is caused by oils building up in the skin and forming red pustules that are sensitive to the touch and spread quickly and easily across the face, chest and back. There are numerous treatments for this condition, but manytimes these will not be successful. You may have tried creams, pills and other treatment methods to no avail. They may have done nothing for your acne or done so little that they weren’t worth your time. There is a treatment method known as IPL (intense pulsed lights) that has been shown to be effective, even when other measures are not.
What Is IPL Treatment?
This pulsed light treatment is painless and simple. Cherie, will fit you with protective eyewear and direct the light to the affected areas of your skin. This pulsed light will target acne lesions and clear up blockages in the skin quickly and painlessly. Over the course of the next few days, the acne should start to go away. It will not clear up completely, but you should see a marked difference in your skin’s appearance from how you looked when you came to visit us. Significant changes will be apparent after a few treatments, and multiple treatments will be required to deal with the acne.
Benefits of IPL
There are many reasons why someone suffering from acne may want to try IPL treatment. The most common one is because they have had no real success with other methods, and their acne is particularly hard to get rid of and clear up. IPL is often successful when other methods are not.
This treatment method is also relatively painless. There may be some blistering and discomfort following the procedure, but it usually goes away after a few days.
It’s also a very simple procedure. You don’t have to remember to take any pills or apply any cream, and that makes it simpler to get results without a lot of effort on your part.
It can also be less embarrassing and obvious as a treatment method. Skin application can leave behind flakes and obvious gel on the skin, while pulsed light treatment shows no signs that you ever had the treatment.
What to Expect
While the procedure itself will be practically painless, you might feel some skin inflammation afterwards, and that can last up to a few days. Cherie, can prescribe medication and an at-home treatment you can do to deal with the discomfort, but IPL is often much less uncomfortable than other treatment methods.
You may need as many as five treatment sessions to completely treat the skin of acne, and you can expect acne to go away for as long as six months. Your results will vary, though, depending on how severe your acne is, how long you had it for and what type of skin you have.
