At some point in our lives, we all get outbreaks of acne...
The Ellipse IPL system is used for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions, including Acne using industry renowned light based technology, without the need of antibiotics or the contraceptive pill. The skin is treated using the safe, visible light in Ellipse’s technology.
This unique technology carefully filters the light to ensure that only clinically relevant wavelengths reach the skin, meaning optimum safety in the procedure. Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for each treatment so all skin tones can ensure they will receive the correct energy output for their complexion.
The light that is allowed through is absorbed by the haemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood. The flashes of light heat up the heamoglobin in the sebaceous glands (where excess oil is produced due to the body’s increased production of the hormone Androgen). This causes a minor injury to the sebaceous glands and slows down the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (produced by both men and women), which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come to the surface.
Acne is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feed on and break down this oil. As bacteria multiply, waste products and sebacic acid are created causing an inflammation in the form of a blackhead, whitehead or pimple.
Don't despair with Ellipse IPL, help is at hand
