Clearing Up Your Acne With IPL Treatments

Clearing Up Your Acne With IPL Treatments

Acne is the most prevalent skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million people in any given year, and not just teens — up to 15% of women also struggle with acne. 

While we’ve come a long way in fighting back against acne through oral and topical medications, technology in the form of intense-pulsed light (IPL) therapy is making quick work of the skin condition.

At Ideal Med Spas, our team is pleased to offer our clients the most advanced cosmetic technologies available. As part of our extensive suite of facial treatments and laser services, we offer the Viora® V20 system, which is an incredibly versatile device that tackles a host of issues, from fat reduction to acne clearance.

Here, we explore how Viora V-IPL can clear away your acne, leaving you with enviably smooth skin.

Viora V-IPL technology explained

Our Viora V20 system has a whopping 112 different applications, including the V-IPL, which delivers intense pulses of light into your tissues that can remedy, among other issues, acne. 

Unlike laser technology, these pulses of light come in different wavelengths, and we use the specific wavelengths that dramatically reduce Propionibacterium acnes (P. acne) bacteria and decrease inflammation. 

As your skin absorbs the light energy, it elicits an oxygen reaction in your cells that destroys P. acne, and at the same time, the energy encourages the production of natural antibacterial agents that prevent bacterial growth.

Undergoing V-IPL treatments

One of the biggest benefits of our V-IPL system is that the treatments are completely noninvasive — the light energy travels harmlessly through the surface of your skin. You may experience some redness immediately afterward, but there’s generally no downtime after your IPL treatments, and you’re free to get on with your day.

When you first come in to see us, we evaluate the extent of your acne to determine the best number of treatments. Most of our clients benefit from a series of Viora V-IPL treatments, but the exact number depends upon how widespread your acne is. Some patients see results after four treatments, while others may need 10 or more to clear away the unwanted blemishes. 

Bear in mind that we space your treatments apart to allow time for your body to respond.

Your results are gradual as your body flushes away the bacteria and your acne clears, and most of our clients realize their goals within a few weeks after their final V-IPL treatment.

If you’d like to say goodbye to acne using the power of light, please contact our office in McDonough, Georgia, to schedule your first V-IPL treatment.
