Acne Treatment

Have you been suffering from congested skin and looking for a good acne treatment?

Does laser treatment help acne? and What we can do…

Acne can be effectively treated with Intense Pulsed Light alone, or in combination with other clinical treatments such as skin peels and facials. Here, at LaserWise Skin & Beauty Clinic we offer a wide range of acne laser treatments in Cardiff. Intense Pulsed Light treatments greatly reduce the number and severity of active lesions, lessening the inflammation and frequency of break-outs.

How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Work?

The light emitted from the Intense Pulsed Light system directly targets over-active sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions, and lessening the inflammation and occurrence of break-outs. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.

We also offer other acne treatments in Cardiff such as skin peels and facials. Microneedling is a very effective treatment for acne scarring once the acne has cleared.

Acne treatment for dark skin

Am I suitable for acne treatment?

Almost everyone can be treated, apart from very dark skinned or tanned individuals. If you are pregnant or taking Roaccutane (an acne medication) it is best not to undergo laser or Intense Pulsed Light treatment.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but no anaesthesia is required. Many people describe the sensation as similar to the flick of an elastic band.

What should I expect after the acne treatment?

Immediately after treatment the skin may appear red and a warm tingling sensation may be felt. Typically the skin is cooled to ease any discomfort and a calming gel is applied.

Are there any side effects?

The treated area can become quite red immediately after treatment but this usually disappears within a couple of hours. Most people experience no other side effects but very rarely a small blister could form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.

How is the acne treatment carried out?

A layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to help guide the light. The light guide is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is passed over the skin several times before moving onto the neighbouring area, and the process is repeated until the whole area is treated. Each pulse of light treats a large area of skin, so the treatment duration is very short. The gel is removed and the skin is moisturised. During treatment, protective eyewear will be provided. A typical treatment session is approximately 30 minutes.

How many acne treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, but typically 6 Intense Pulsed Light and 6 exfoliating treatments will result in a significant improvement.
