Intense Pulsed Light Acne Therapy

sculptIntense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems use a filtering system to target acne at its root cause. The Lux V handpiece on the Palomar StarLux employ a broad spectrum of light to attack acne on two fronts:

The LuxV’s short wavelength (400-700 nm) is ideal for absorption by porphyrins; this destroys p. acnes bacteria for a quick clearance of current acne breakouts

The longer wavelength (870-1200 nm) penetrates deeper into the hyperactive sebaceous glands and slows down their metabolism to prevent future acne from forming.

Most patients see a significant change in their skin with IPL Acne Therapy. Approximately 3-5 treatments are necessary to achieve optimal clearing. IPL Acne Therapy is an ideal treatment for patients with resistant inflammatory acne and those patients who are on numerous topical medications.
