Acne breakouts are challenging to deal with. At any age, acne is one of the most frustrating and embarrassing of all skin problems. If you feel that you have tried every acne clearing over-the-counter product out there without success, consider taking a professional-grade approach. There are several light laser therapies and peels that are very effective in the treatment of mild to moderate acne without requiring systemic antibiotics. IPL, or “intense pulsed light” uses specific lightwaves to destroy the common bacteria that cause acne.
Why IPL for acne?
IPL Acne Clearing works by selectively targeting blemishes and oil glands beneath the skin with blue and violet Light therapy. At Skintegrity, we use the revolutionary Palomar IPL technology. With this system, pulses of light are emitted through a handpiece that is gently pressed to your skin, reducing redness and drying up the oil that causes clogged pores and breakouts – a pain-free treatment. When coupled with blue light therapy, which produces free radicals to kill acne-causing bacteria, the result is healed, clear, and more healthy-looking skin without downtime and or systemic side effects of medications.
Clear skin, at last.
At Skintegrity MedSpa, located in beautiful Kirkland, WA, we have researched the treatment options that have been proven safe and effective in acne clearing and have included them in our MedSpa services. Our highly professional, certified staff are trained in how to achieve optimal results with acne treatments, and the specific wavelengths and combinations that work best to clear acne without harming the surrounding skin. Even though we understand that acne treatments are not something you would choose to undergo, we endeavor to make your experience as comfortable as possible while employing the necessary procedures to give you the clear, glowing skin you deserve!
Which treatment is right for me?
Most of us have probably dealt with acne at some point in our lives. Acne occurs when there is an overproduction of oil in our skin that gets clogged in our pores, resulting in pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads on the surface of our skin.
Systemic antibiotics are often prescribed to help with the treatment of acne, but these can sometimes cause allergic reactions, may be hard to tolerate or take weeks to produce a difference in active acne. We offer a range of treatments for acne clearing, including lasers, light therapies, and microdermabrasion, each of which provides an excellent alternative for patients seeking out an effective treatment that will not only clear their acne and prevent future breakouts but will also help their skin look refreshed and beautiful.
