Acne is a common skin condition which causes pimples or zits on the face, chest, arms or back. The breakouts can consists of either whiteheads, blackheads or red inflamed cysts. Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL) is an effective yet safe method to treat acne without any downtime or negative side effects. The IPL system releases yellow, green and red light which is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow and green light destroys the p-acne bacteria which causes acne and the red light targets the sebaceous gland to reduce oil production. The heating of the skin also reduces the inflammation of the current breakouts. For best results an average of at least three pretreatments is recommended in combination with a chemical peel San Diego procedure.
