Acne & LHE™ IPL Acne Clearance Treatment
Acne begins when a build up of oil occurs in the hair follicle, creating a plug that traps oil and dead cells under the surface of the skin. The clogged follicle becomes a fertile breeding ground for p.acnes bacteria - the main cause of acne. The p.acnes bacteria thrive when there is a lack of oxygen. This anaerobic environment creates the perfect condition for the p.acnes bacteria to reproduce colonies and release porphyrin.
New research has shown that by targeting the pore with certain type of light, an oxygen rich environment is created that destroys the p.acnes. Understanding these principals has led to the development of a breakthrough acne clearance treatment - LHE™ IPL Acne Clearance.
How LHE™ IPL Acne Clearance Works
LHE™ IPL technology by Radiancy Inc. offers a unique approach to Acne Clearance. LHE™ stands for the Light (green and red Intense Pulsed Light) and Heat Energy combined in one effective treatment.
Throughout its life time acne-causing bacteria (p.acnes) causes porphyrin molecules to be produced. Green light penetrates deep beneath the skin surface and causes the porphyrin molecules to release oxygen. Oxygen attacks and destroys the acne bacteria. The more bacteria - the more porphyrin is there - the more oxygen is produced to destroy the acne bacteria in return.
Red light quickly reduces the inflammation from the base of the hair follicle.
The Heat clears the pores and soothes the acne lesions, initiating a natural healing process that causes the rebuilding of a new collagen in the skin with smoother texture and improved acne scars appearance.
LHE™ IPL Acne Photo Therapy - The Totally Natural Energy
LHE™ IPL Acne Photo-Therapy applies the totally natural energy - visible light spectrum of specific wave length and heat - locally on to the acne area. No unsafe energy types or ingesting chemicals and compromising the immune system.
LHE™ IPL is a highly effective technology for clearing acne with virtually no discomfort or downtime. Typically clients can experience some mild redness after each session which goes away within the same day. A soothing lotion with a sunscreen is applied post treatment.
LHE™ IPL Acne Photo-Therapy is also ideal for treating the redness associated with moderate and cystic acne. Each treatment takes about 30-45 minutes. A typical treatment regimen consists of 8 treatments over a 4-week period. The results are usually seen within three to four weeks with further scar improvement continuing for even 5-6 months after the treatment is finished.
