IPL Treatment For Mild To Moderate Acne
By Pure + Simple co-founder Jean Eng.
In this age of high stress, pollution, and junk food, acne is widespread. Zits, pimples, pustules, blemishes – whatever we call them, we detest them. For some, it may be a minor annoyance, but for others it undermines self-image and lowers self-esteem. Many of us panic and seek the advice of dermatologists at the first sight of blemishes, which can lead to a stream of harsh salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and tireless peels or retinol cream. This only worsens the problem by unbalancing + depleting the skin, causing more blemishes.
The approach should be more holistic. Most people view acne as an enemy -- seeing a pimple makes them want to eliminate it, extract it, and dry it out. This reflects the attitude that acne is a topical + external problem, not an internal imbalance, coming to the surface and expressing itself.
A pimple is a clogged pore, which has become infected and inflamed, turning it into a pustule. This is why the minimization of blackheads decreases acne. Pustules are red, inflamed pimples with a white, puss-filled head, they need an antibacterial treatment for prevention. Using a dry clay or mud spot treatment helps, as it dries and draws out blemishes. If that doesn’t help, extracting them when they are ready is the fastest way to heal them.
For those of us with more stubborn mild to moderate cases of acne, we might need some additional assistance. Pure + Simple’s Intense Pulse Light (IPL) facials + treatments are a safe, effective, and drug-free solution. It is ideal for those who want lasting results with no downtime.
HOW IT WORKS
Pure + simple uses SharpLight’s skin solution systems, which involves the use of hand held flash lamps that emit gentle pulses of light, which are absorbed in different skin lesions.
Visible Blue Light is used to produce free radicals in the sebaceous gland, which destroys bacteria on the acne lesions, without damaging surrounding tissue.
Yellow Light is used to coagulate the feeding blood vessels to improve their healing; and finally, Infrared Light is applied to dry the lesions.
Unique Cooling System minimizes pain and discomfort.
In addition to receiving these results, clients enjoy the benefits of a relatively painless treatment with no side-effects.
Technology in skincare can leave clients out in the cold, Pure + Simple humanizes the technology with the addition of a massage, along with elements of a facial experience. The IPL facial treatment for Acne also includes an oxygen treatment to hydrate + purify skin.
