Pulsed Light Acne Treatment

Palomar PULSED LIGHT ACNE TREATMENT
Clear your acne blemishes with easy pulsed light treatments.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?
Acne occurs when the pores become clogged with dead skin cells and excess sebum.

This provides an ideal medium for bacteria to multiply – causing pimples and inflammation. Acne generally begins in puberty but can last well into adulthood. 

PULSED LIGHT: HOW DOES IT WORK?
Pulses of filtered light are directed into the skin, where they destroy bacteria to clear current acne breakouts. The light pulses also slow down the production of sebum, which can get clogged in the pores – this prevents future acne breakouts.

Pulsed light systems are similiar to lasers but with a larger light beam than most lasers for wider coverage and faster, more comfortable treatments.

The Palomar Pulsed Light System attacks acne on two fronts:
  1. It attacks bacteria to clear current acne breakouts.
  2. It decreases the production of sebum, which clogs pores and traps bacteria, leading to future acne breakouts.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Happens After Acne Treatment?
Your skin may be slightly red after treatment. The acne blemishes shrink and become less noticeable, and then fade after approximately one week.

Will the Treatments Hurt?
Palomar Pulsed Light Systems use a unique long pulsewidth that delivers energy to the skin over a relatively long period of time. This makes the pulses safer and more comfortable. You may experience a feeling similar to that of a rubber band being snapped on the skin, but most people do not report this sensation as painful.

Are There Any Adverse Reactions to Treatment?
You may experience temporary redness and a mild “sunburn”- like effect that may last a few hours to a few days.
