Topical creams and oral medications can be effective treatments for acne outbreaks, but they can be expensive and can dry and irritate sensitive skin. What's more, acne that occurs on backs and chests can be difficult to treat topically because of the large surface area.
Treating acne with pulsed light can deliver better aesthetic results, especially on inflammatory acne, without the side effects associated with topical and oral acne medications. You can also treat scars resulting from acne outbreaks with fractional laser skin resurfacing.
Acne IPL treatments with Palomar® technology target and destroy the skin bacteria responsible for acne to help prevent future breakouts from occurring on faces, chests and backs. Our pulsed light technology delivers just the right amount of light in the right spot size for your treatment needs, while our Advanced Contact Cooling technology protects clients' skin.
Palomar's IPL treatment for preventing future acne breakouts delivers a spectrum of light that is absorbed by porphyrins within skin, destroying P. acnes bacteria and inhibiting future acne breakouts.
To treat acne scars, we use pulses of laser light to coagulate scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients' skin. Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and clients feel little to no pain.
At our clinic we use LuxV™ for treating acne outbreaks and Lux1540™ for treating acne scarring
