Acne is the most common skin condition and is experienced by people of all ages, some more severely than others. Acne, medically referred to as acne vulgaris, is a skin disease that involves the overproduction of oil in the sebaceous glands. The clogging of pores leads to bacterial infection, painful inflammation, and unsightly blemishes. Although acne is largely experienced by adolescents, almost 20% of all acne cases are experienced by adults.

IPL treatment is a fast, effective procedure for acne treatment. The light from the IPL device interacts with Porphoryn, an element of our biological pigments. The reaction caused releases oxygen, which helps kill the bacteria causing the acne., it also stimulates the production of new collagen, which helps repair the damage caused by acne infection. IPL usually results in a long-term improvement of acne, and of overall skin health and texture.

IPL Treatment - Safe, Effective and Affordable but how does it work?

The AW3® treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood. Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique has the name “Selective Photothermolysis”.

The visible light produced by the AW3® systems are carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissues.

The AW3® Skin Rejuvenation system will treat diffuse redness and pigmented disorders caused by sun-damage and also improve the skin texture.The AW3® Rejuvenation procedure will additionally treat larger (individually visible vessels) telangiectasias.

Both Photo Rejuvenation and Skin Rejuvenation are quick and simple procedures that do not interfere with your normal daily routine. Both are aimed at repairing sun-damage found on the face, neck chest and hands.
