IPL Acne Treatment
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (produced by both men and women), which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come to the surface.
The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics is allowed to reach your skin.
The light that is allowed through is absorbed by haemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood. The light heats up the haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes a minor injury to the sebaceous glands and slows down the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.
