What is Acne?

Acne breakouts usually occur in younger men and women, especially during puberty, and can be psychologically distressing. Although it is often associated with adolescents, it also commonly affects adults.

Some people have naturally acne-prone skin, resulting in severe acne that seldom goes away throughout adulthood. Adult acne can also occur due to hormonal changes, inflammation of a hair follicle, clogged pores, bacteria, and lifestyle factors such as stress and poor eating habits.

It is important to note that acne is not only the pimples we’re familiar with on the surface of the skin but also blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts.

Can Acne be Cured Permanently?

Most people with active acne seek help from a GP, who can recommend a combination of topical skincare products and prescription antibiotics. These will help manage breakouts, but will not cure acne. Unfortunately, there are currently no ways to permanently cure acne.

Occasionally, in severe cases, it can be treated with a drug called Roaccutane under the supervision of a dermatologist. However, while conventional antibiotic treatments are a clinically proven cornerstone of most acne treatments, most patients prefer not to use prescription medications.

If you have a less severe form of acne or you would prefer not to undergo the conventional drug treatments, we offer one of the most effective aesthetic acne treatments currently on the market that improves the symptoms.— Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

Non-Surgical Treatments for Acne include:

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

The IPL treatment we offer at our clinic is one of the leading solutions for acne treatment in Glasgow. Along with being one of the most popular treatments available today, it can be used as an alternative to medication, depending on the specifics of your situation.

How Does IPL Treatment Work?

IPL treatment uses a very bright light in short bursts to target pigments within the skin. It is one of the most effective solutions for treating acne.

The intense pulsed light from the device targets discolouration and scarring from acne and removes dead skin cells that contribute to recurring and active acne.

The IPL machine generates a burst of heat that typically destroys red blood vessels and brown spots. In acne sufferers, this can help reduce some of the redness associated with spots and some of the brown marks left on the skin after previous spots have cleared.

The treatment itself can be uncomfortable or painful but is very quick. There is also evidence suggesting that the heat generated from the IPL can help eliminate some of the glands that produce the excess sebum associated with acne.

Why Choose IPL Treatment as a Solution for Acne?

IPL is safe for men and women when treating acne from teenage years into adulthood.

By addressing severe acne and inflammation on the skin, IPL treatments further promote better skin by increasing collagen production. The new collagen can provide anti-ageing effects and a protective barrier, preventing acne from re-occurring in the future.

With a few sessions of our IPL acne laser treatment in Glasgow, you can expect to see smoother and clearer skin — a major factor in boosting your self-esteem and self-confidence.
