Skin / Acne and Acne Scarring
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by skin eruptions around hair follicles. It can occur at all ages.
Though commonly appearing on face and shoulders, it can extend to back, arms and legs.
Acne is caused when glands within the pores of the skin become plugged, because oil and skin cells accumulate faster than they can exit. The plug causes the hair follicle to bulge (causing white heads), and the top of the plug may appear dark (causing black heads). If the plug causes the wall of the follicle to rupture, the oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria found normally on the surface of the skin can enter the skin and form small infected areas called pustules (also known as pimples). If these infected areas are deep in the skin, they may enlarge to form firm, painful cysts. It is these cysts that can lead to acne scarring.
BBL (BROAD BAND LIGHT) FOR ACNE:
Forever Clear BBL (Broad Band Light) is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world's most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
Kill bacteria and work your way to becoming acne free
How it works:
The skin is first treated with blue BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at it's source, deep down in the pores.
Skin is then treated with yellow BBL light to reduce inflammation and acne associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.
For added benefit, the skin is then treated with infra-red light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body's natural healing process.
In conjunction with your BBL treatment we like to maintain your acne treatments with our Anti-Acne Medical Grade Facial.
The Anti-Acne Facial uses pulsed light to target the p-acnes bacteria that are partially responsible for the problem followed by a deeper light treatment that reduces the redness and targets the deeper acne lesions. The treatment is then followed by a facial that is designed to loosen, smooth and extract clogged pores and acne. You will leave with a 7-day post treatment kit to care for you glowing skin.
