Acne can be effectively treated with Intense Pulsed Light alone or in combination with other clinical treatments. Intense Pulsed Light treatments greatly reduce the number and severity of active lesions, lessening the inflammation and frequency of breakouts.
How does Intense Pulsed Light Work?
The light emitted from the Intense Pulsed Light system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions and lessening the inflammation and occurrence of breakouts. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.
How long does it take?
A typical treatment session is approximately 30 minutes. The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, but typically 6 Intense Pulsed Light and 6 exfoliating treatments will result in a significant improvement.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatment can be mildly uncomfortable, but no anaesthesia is required, and most people describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable. We use our specialist cryo cooler during and straight after treatment to help calm the skin.
Are there any side effects?
Redness and slight swelling are normal after treatment, but this usually subsides quickly. Very rarely a small blister may form, however, most people experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within a few hours.

Before we do any treatments, we will carry out a free one-to-one consultation to discuss your medical history and check your suitability for the procedure. We will then tailor a treatment procedure specifically to you. If you wish to proceed with treatment, we will carry out a patch test at a cost of £45, which is then deducted from your first treatment.
