SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors offers the finest services for Ipl Acne in Melbourne. Our experienced cosmetic doctors offer personalised treatments to clients in our Melbourne clinical studios.

IPL Laser Treatment for Acne

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light – the use of pulses of light over a range of wavelengths. This is one of the most commonly administered forms of light therapy in dermatological applications. IPL systems are developed to provide many rapid, high intensity and controlled pulses of light. These controlled pulsing avoids thermal damage to the skin and lessens discomfort.

Melbourne IPL treatment allows to treat those acne with specific wavelengths of light and focuses on the bacteria in the skin, also on inflamed sebaceous glands which causes breakouts.

This treatment is also used to destroy pigment clusters in selected areas, capillary veins filled with blood, or hair depending on the intended nature of treatment.

The effectiveness of the IPL treatment for skin blemishes and acne scarring will depend on skin type and the severity or scar type. Usually, skin rejuvenation with IPL should be performed with other cosmetic treatments such as a good skin regime which helps in achieving great results. In general acne scarring treatment with IPL laser therapy is very effective in our Melbourne clinics.

Procedures carry risks and benefits at the same time. The chances of complications depend on how you follow through and how you take care of the treated area. You have to provide all the information needed to the cosmetic doctor and have to be honest in filling out forms.

At SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors you can have confidence in the Cosmetic Doctor Difference. This means that our cosmetic procedures are all administered by expert cosmetic doctors who use only the highest quality products and the latest technology. To us, each patient is an individual, with unique concerns and goals, and our tailored consultation, treatments and aftercare reflect this. See our SKIN CLUB Journey below, to find out more.

What is Acne?

There are different types of acne but the most common is a skin condition wherein your hair follicles become clogged with dirt, oil or dead skin cells.

This is another reason for your body to produce whiteheads, pimples or blackheads. For some, these pimples could be lumps beneath the skin surface and causes extreme pain and should not be taken lightly.

Different Types of Acne

  • Blackheads. Occur whenever oil, dead skin and bacteria have built up and trapped in the pores of your skin. Pores remain open and all the dirt inside turns into a different, darker colour which is the reason for those to be called as blackheads.
  • Whiteheads. These are same as blackheads, But the difference is the dust and bacteria within a white head does not stretch the pore and closes over the material. It means that the material inside does not have any contact with the oxygen which makes it stays as white or yellowish in colour.
  • Pustules. These are small pimples filled with pus.
  • Nodules. These are one of severe acne types; they lie deep under the skin but not filled with pus. These usually form a hard bump below the skin.
  • Cysts. These pimples are normally caused by hormonal issues and are extremely painful. This type of acne is surely one of the severe cases. Any treatment or remedy should be consulted first with a dermatologist before applying.

How Does IPL Acne treatment work?

Our IPL treatment in Melbourne lets the cosmetic doctor to set the treatment based on your skin type and expected results. Pulsed light go into the tissue and produces heat, targeting the skin issues in a controlled manner.

To make sure that the patient feels comfortable, our cosmetic doctor should apply cold coupling gel on the area that needs to be treated. Expect the entire session to last anywhere between 15 and 20 minutes depending on your skin concerns.

The effects are somewhat immediate and results can be seen once the redness subsides. There may be a warm feeling or sensation as the light applies on the skin; however, the treatment is gentle and should still feel comfortable.

IPL for Skin Rejuvenation can effectively treat:

  • Stubborn melasma
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Damaged skin due to sun exposure and/or redness
  • Hyperpigmentation such as freckles and sun spots
  • Acne

Benefits of IPL Acne Treatment

  • Makes your skin smooth – the IPL therapy stimulates the production of collagen which is a natural protein that fills in lines and makes the skin look smooth and younger.
  • Reduces pigmentation and redness – reverses the signs of skin problems due to sun damage. It focuses on eliminating the appearance of brown spots, blotched and pigmentation on the face area and/or body.
  • Overall texture improvement – IPL treatment removes all unwanted pigmentation and helps your skin maintain its younger and even look.
  • Treating acne with IPL is a gentle treatment that addresses both acne and bacteria at the same time though intense pulsed light.
  • A fast treatment with no downtime and has less side effects compared to medications.
  • Helps gaining your confidence back with just few treatments since the treatment improves your skin appearance.

What can I expect after IPL Acne treatment?

You may experience some redness as soon as the treatment is done depending on the setting of your treatment. It normally disappears after few hours. In some cases, patient can continue with regular activities after IPL treatment or make up may be applied immediately. You should also avoid direct sunlight exposure and apply sunscreen.

How soon can I see the results?

It will take several number of sessions to be able to eliminate bacteria. To achieve great results, it usually takes 4-6 sessions with a recess of 4 weeks in between each treatment.

Am I a good candidate for IPL acne/IPL laser treatment?

IPL treatment is not applicable to everyone and entails some risks. IPL acne treatment can not be performed when a patient has fungal or viral skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include redness, swelling and changes in terms of pigmentation. Make sure to have a consultation with our cosmetic doctor first prior to considering this treatment.

What should I do after the treatment?

It is recommended to use sunblock on the treated area at least two months after your first course of treatments. In some scenarios, series of treatments may also be recommended 6 to 12 months after. We will send after care guides to follow through after IPL procedure.

SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors provides an aftercare guideline to help you recover faster and enjoy the amazing effects of our Melbourne IPL Treatment.
