Acne is one of the most common skin conditions and is experienced by people of all ages. This unsightly and annoying blemish is now treatable with our advanced laser treatment. Active acne is often formed by infection from bacteria. This causes your sebaceous glands to secrete oily sebum in larger amounts than normal, causing obstruction and blockage, and consequent bacterial colonization, and inflammation in the skin.
During a treatment, our Astanza Etherea IPL-Sq handpiece emits light onto the unwanted acne. The light energy targets the bacteria responsible for causing the acne, converts to heat, and destroys both the bacteria and the sebaceous bulb itself.
Most patients require 4 to 8 treatments for effective results, however, patients should see results within 1 to 2 days following the beginning of treatment. You may experience a slight warming sensation during treatment and some redness following treatment. This treatment requires no downtime whatsoever.
