New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center offers IPL acne treatment to patients from Orlando and nearby locations.
Living with acne can be extremely uncomfortable, both physically and emotionally. Trying to find correction for this condition can be a lifelong struggle of trying product after product and treatment after treatment. Dr. Jan V. Karlin at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Orlando believes we have the answer to your pimple problem: IPL (intense pulsed light) acne treatments with the Palomar Lux V.
By using the Palomar Lux V, our Orlando-area patients can target and destroy the bacteria responsible for acne, preventing future breakouts. Treating acne with IPL can deliver better results than oral medications and without the side effects associated with many prescriptions.
IPL Acne Treatment
If you have acne, you probably know all acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, which is made up of a hair follicle, sebaceous gland and a hair. Acne develops when some of the pores (through which oil normally flows from the oil gland to reach the skin’s surface) become blocked, resulting in the trapping of oil.
The Palomar Lux V dual-band hand piece employs a broad spectrum of ultraviolet light to attack acne on two fronts. First, the porphyrins, or pigment, absorb the light, which destroys the acne bacteria for a quick clearance of current acne breakouts. Second, the longer wavelength penetrates deeper into the hyperactive sebaceous glands and slows down their metabolism to prevent future acne from forming.
Another aspect of Dr. Karlin’s IPL acne treatment is the combination of the Palomar Lux V with Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT). PDT is performed with a topical photosensitizing agent called Levulinic Acid or ALA. ALA is applied to the skin and then activated by the wavelengths of light in the Palomar Lux V. This unique treatment has the ability to minimize pores and reduce oil production, in turn effectively treating stubborn acne vulgaris, acne and Rosacea. In addition to targeting acne, this procedure can also correct sun damage, fine lines and blotchy pigmentation, as well as remove precancerous spots called actinic keratoses.
