Acne Laser Treatment What Is Active Acne? Acne is caused by the enlargement and obstruction of sebaceous glands by bacteria in the skin. These multiply deep in the hair follicle and produce inflamed pus-filled spots and cysts, which can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs and virtually any other parts of the body. Acne should be treated as soon as possible as acne is more likely to go on to a scar if it is left untreated. We provide the most advanced acne treatment and all procedures are carried out by our trained staff. As a professional and experienced clinic we are able to treat all skin types. IPL: Intense Pulsed Light Laser is applied to the skin which encourages skin rejuvenation, accelerating the micro-circulation process, which helps to raise the active metabolism of the skin cells. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the bacteria. Laser treatments target the porphyrins produced as part of the normal metabolism of acne bacteria, and rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue on interaction. This destroys the acne bacteria in just a fraction of the time it typically takes for antibiotics to work, in most cases we have found, with remarkable results.
