Acne scar treatments

In Royale Aesthetic Clinic, we use non-invasive techniques to treat acne scars and active acne using M22 Intense Pulse Light (IPL) which consists of intense pulses of non-coherent light distributed over a range of wavelengths; from 400nm to 1200nm. The technology utilises specific wavelengths to target various chromophores in the skin. This enables effective treatment of a broad spectrum of conditions, including vascular and pigmented lesions, skin photoaging treatments and hair removal.

What is it ?

Intense Pulsed Light Acne treatment enables your physician to greatly improve your skin appearance, reducing your acne, while at the same time treating redness and pigmentation of your skin. The unique Lumenis IPL technology utilises light flashes over the treated area, triggering biochemical response that will eventually eliminate the bacteria within the pores.  IPL is a non-invasive solution for inflammatory acne with less collateral effects than oral medication.

How does it work?

IPL acne technology is one of the most commonly administered form of light therapy in dermatological applications. IPL systems are designed to deliver many rapid, highly intense and controlled pulses of light – the controlled pulsing prevents thermal damage to your skin and minimises discomfort. IPL technology treats your acne with specific wavelengths of light targeting bacteria in the skin, as well as inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to break-outs. IPL energy (at various wavelengths) is also used to selectively destroy pigment clusters, blood-filled capillary veins, or hair, depending on the intended nature of the treatment.

The advantage of IPL technology

  • Safe, non-invasive treatment
  • Unique cooling system, minimising the risk of damage
  • Treatment only takes 30 minutes
  • No recovery time
  • Usually only 2-4 treatments needed
  • Can also improve surrounding skin appearance

The treatment

To ensure utmost comfort, your physician will apply a special gel over the treatment area. Depending on your specific condition, you can expect the session to last 15-20 minutes. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable

When will I see results?

Depending on the acne severity, it may take typically 4-6 sessions with a recess of 4 weeks in between treatments to see improvement on your skin.

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customised treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours and daily activities can be resumed on the same day.

Is It right for me?

Lumenis energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. IPL for acne is not suitable when you have active viral or fungal skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling and change of pigmentation.  Your treatment provider will consult with you and assess your condition before deciding on this procedure.
