PulsedLight Acne Clear uses clinical IPL to treat acne effectively and pleasantly. This comfortable and quick procedure that makes use of pulses of light to reverse the skin’s photo ageing process, pigmentation and vascular lesions, reduces and prevents acne-causing bacteria from reproducing to inhibit future outbreaks.
Our FDA-approved clinical IPL system incorporates the latest advances in cosmetic IPL. It is more effective and yet much less painful due to the “cold touch” technology. IPL treatments are non-invasive and non-abrasive and our medi-aestheticians are well trained to ensure the best results are achieved by using the high-tech NannoLight IPL machine. NannoLight IPL machine uses a “Top Hat” spectrum profile to consistently maintain the desired energy fluency during the entire pulse duration discharge period, resulting in effective, predictable and safe treatment results. This treatment is especially useful to treat mild to moderate acne.
This skin treatment is available at our aesthetics centres.
A cooling gel will be applied onto the treatment area before IPL is administered. Intense pulses of light are sent through the outer layer of the skin and energy is concentrated on the deeper layer. The blemishes absorb the light and the heat energy breaks down these into minute particles, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream and eliminated through the lymphatic system. This treatment also stimulates cells in the deeper layers of the skin to produce new collagen, which plumps up the complexion, resulting in additional benefits, such as more youthful-looking skin. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes.
For most skin types, the best long-lasting results are achieved between 6-8 treatments at weekly intervals. Customers may notice a ‘glow’ and smoother complexion with less acne breakouts as early as after the first treatment.
This treatment is suitable for everyone; especially those who wish to reduce the visibility of acne scars and/or improve their acne problem. However, we advise customers with very dark-skin or recently tanned individuals to seek a professional opinion from our medi-aestheticians before undergoing treatment.
There are no known side effects of this treatment. However, a little redness in the treated area is expected and typically short-lived, which fades within a few hours after treatment. More extreme cases may see customers experiencing a transient mild burning sensation, temporary flushing, slight bruising and discolouration of the skin.
We recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and applying moisturiser and sunblock. No additional exfoliants or abrasive procedures should be done for 1 week after treatment. For homecare, we recommend ClearSK’s Smoothen Skincare Series for oily acne skin control.
