What Are IPL Acne Treatments?
If you’re still struggling with acne breakouts and are interested in acne reduction, you’re not alone. Acne is among the most common skin conditions in the world, affecting up to 50 million people each year in the United States alone. Research shows that up to 55% of adults aged 20 to 40 suffer from low-grade acne and oily skin1. But no matter how common it is, acne is still a struggle to live with. The good news is you don’t have to anymore.
Acne can take many different forms. For example, it can cause blackheads and whiteheads, which are clogged pores filled with sebum, or oil and cellular debris. Whiteheads are ones that haven’t pushed all the way to the skin’s surface as blackheads have, which causes their dark color. Acne can also take the form of papules and pustules. Papules are tiny pimples that measure less than 0.5 centimeters across, they are sometimes called pinheads; Pustules are another type of pimple; they are larger than papules and contain pus. Other painful forms of acne such as nodules and cysts can also form. Nodules are larger papules that form deeper into the skin, whereas cysts, which resemble boils, are closed pockets of tissue that contain pus.
With the right treatment for acne reduction, however, you can effectively target both the cause and visible symptoms of acne-related skin conditions like the above. Devices using IPL, or intense pulsed light, can be used for acne reduction.
Venus Concept’s Venus Versa™ acne treatments use dual lights that work to heal existing acne-related inflammation, while also destroying acne-causing bacteria to minimize future breakouts. Sometimes referred to as IPL photofacial for acne, IPL for acne produces noticeably smoother, healthier-looking skin that you’ll be happy to show off.
