Acne

Wellington, West Palm Beach, Royal Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Loxahatchee

Acne is one of the most common and stubborn skin problems. Regardless of skin type or lifestyle, approximately 80% of the population will suffer from acne at some point in their lives. Acne is common in both teens and adults.

Many people find current treatment options for acne either ineffective or they develop significant side effects. Additionally, the cost and duration of acne treatment with topical medications and oral antibiotics make standard therapy far from ideal, especially when its not working!

We know you have already tried everything. Special cleansers, creams, prescription medications, "miracle TV drugs" and home remedies. But you still have acne. At Epilution Med Spa we have a better acne solution.

IPL Acne Treatment

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment can helps acne in multiple ways. First, the light kills many of the bacteria that cause acne. Second, the light causes a dramatic increase in certain enzymes within the skin that reduce acne.

The IPL Acne Treatment Process

First we have you remove any make up or cover up from the skin that might be covering the acne. We then protect your eyes with special goggles. The IPL acne treatment is extremely bright, so eye protection is necessary. A cold gel is then placed on the skin. The IPL acne handpiece is then placed directly on your skin. At first you will feel that the IPL acne handpiece is very cold. As the IPL acne treatment begins you will feel a snapping sensation on your skin, similar to a rubber band snap. This is caused by the IPL acne handpiece firing extremely bright pulses of light. With each pulse, the IPL acne handpiece is moved over the surface or your skin until all of the skin has been treated. With each pulse of light acne causing bacteria are immediately killed. Furthermore, after the IPL acne treatment, your skin will have an approximately 500% increase in certain enzymes which suppress acne inflammation.

After the IPL Acne Treatment

After your IPL acne treatmet, your skin will be pink for a few hours. This can be covered up with make up or left alone. You can immediately return to work, school or home. Over the next few days, your larger acne cysts may drain or dry up depending on how bad they were before the IPL acne treatment. Smaller acne lesions will also start to dry up. Inflamed skin will look much less irritated.

A series of IPL acne treatment is usually needed to achieve long term relief from acne. The treatments can be schedule in batches. Mild to moderate cases of acne can usually be suppressed with weekly treatments for 6-8 weeks. More severe cases of acne may require 2 treatments per week for 3-4 weeks and then a few more weekly treatments. In all cases, you wil also need to treat your acne at home between and after treatments. We will teach you what kinds of acne products you will need to use and how to use them.

For the most severe cases of acne, we can add Photodynamic Therapy. Photodynamic therapy can usually improve even the most severe and resitant form of acne. To perform Photodynamic therapy, your skin is pretreatd with a chemical (Amino Levulinic Acid, also known as ALA)which is selectively absorbed by acne and by damaged skin. The acne lesions become exquisitely sensitive to light. We then perform an IPL acne treatment as described above. After a Photodynamic treatment, you will be required to remain indoors for 2-3 days to prevent severe side effects. During this time, your skin may be quite inflamed and even peel. At the end of the 3 days you should have a dramatic improvement in you acne that may last for many months.

One way or another, we will help you win your fight against acne!!
