    Before and after results

    Almost all of us have suffered the embarrassment of acne at one time or another in our lives. During puberty, hormones go into overdrive. More than 80% of teenagers develop some form of acne. It is one of the most common skin conditions caused by a disorder of the sebaceous follicles of the skin. Although for most it is a phase that clears up with time, some people continue suffering from acne breakouts due to excessive sebum production well into their adulthood. There could be many reasons: hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause), specific medications, certain cosmetic products, sun exposure, stress… Whatever the type or cause of acne… as the healthy glow goes away, so does our self-esteem.

    Dermapure believes that a comprehensive treatment plan is essential to restore the acne-prone skin to its smooth and healthy state. Daily use of adapted topical products and dietary supplements plays a key role in controlling acne breakouts and adds to the success of the proposed clinical procedure: IPL.

    Treatment & technology

    Woman who has used a Rosacea treatment

    The IPL platform selected by Dermapure treats the visible signs of acne in just a few sessions. As an alternative to oral antibiotics that too often come with harsh side effects, the intense pulsed light therapy at specific wavelengths is one of the safest acne treatments available at this time, proven to be effective on mild to severe inflammatory acne.

    The advantage of IPL is that this technology utilizes a broad spectrum light source that could be used to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic uses (hair removal, acne, rosacea, age spots). Various cutoff filters are commonly used with the universal device handpiece to narrow the wavelengths to target specific penetration depths under the epidermis. For effective acne treatment, three filters are applied – 420 nm (blue light), 560 nm (yellow light) and 590 nm (red light) – each having a distinctive property, i.e. destroying the Proprionibacterium acnes bacteria, treating inflammatory acne lesions and inhibiting overactive sebaceous oil glands, respectively.

    Clinical indications

    The treatment course consists of four one-hour session, four weeks apart. Depending on the type of acne, IPL can be used in combination with Levulan, a photosensitizer solution, to amplify the effects of light therapy and temporarily shut down sebaceous glands. Although the sensation of light may be somewhat uncomfortable and feel like pin pricks and small bursts of heat, regular light-based acne procedures require no topical anesthetic or other precautions. The results develop a few weeks after the end of treatment.

    Protocol

    After a protective cooling gel has been applied to the skin, the IPL handpiece tip is pressed against the skin and emits a burst of light. The tip is then moved to the next area and so on for the entire face. The process may be repeated with each of the three filters, as decided by your technician. The skin is wiped clean and a specific post-treatment calming product is applied.

    Each person is unique and we are here to advise you. It is free.
