Why acne doesn’t have to ruin your summer

Posted on 27 Jun, 2011

Acne can be a problem whatever the weather, but when you are out in the sun wearing tons of makeup to cover up your skin it can feel like even more of a problem. Heat and perspiration can mean constantly adding more to try and keep the problem out of sight.

There is an effective treatment, however, that could leave your skin looking clearer. Advanced Intense Pulsed Light treatment, which works in two ways to improve the appearance of acne-prone skin:

• The light eliminates the bacteria that produce the spots in the first place, thus preventing the formation of new spots;

• It also safely and gently produces heat in the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen provides the skin with elasticity and is also necessary for the healing and regeneration of skin cells.

Safe and fast, this acne treatment can produce fantastic results even from the first sessions, and can provide a speedier recovery for the skin than other types of treatment. A session for the face can take as little as twenty minutes, and because the light works on the lower layers of the skin, there are no marks left on the surface.
