Laser Active Acne Treatment
While there are many treatment options available for acne both prescription and over the counter, these do not always work for everyone. Acne is the most common skin condition with an incidence of over 90% in adolescents. However, acne may appear for the first time in the mid-twenties or later, and persists for a significant number of people into their forties and fifties. When acne is particularly stubborn or severe a more advanced solution may be needed. Harmony Pro XL Laser Active Acne Treatment is suitable for all skin types (I-VI) and achieves a clearer smoother complexion with lasting results. The treatment addresses moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris using the power of light only.

What to expect with Laser Active Acne Treatments
The Harmony Pro XL IPL hand piece emits high energy blue light at a wavelength of 420-950nm. The blue light kills the bacteria (P. Acnes) that cause infection and lead to spots. The blue light heats up the skin around the spots producing collagen that boosts the healing process causing the spot to disappear.
How Long Do Laser Active Acne Treatments Take?
The procedure usually takes 30 minutes and all areas of the body can be treated. A cooling gel will be applied to the area prior to the treatment. As the laser light pulse impacts onto the skins surface there is a sensation of warmth and a short sharp snap feeling similar to the snap of a thin rubber band onto the skin. This produces mild discomfort in a short burst for some and appears almost pain free in others. A cold air cooling devise can be used to aid any discomfort felt during treatment with a cooling cream gel applied immediately after.
Immediately following treatment the skin will appear red (erythema) and may feel tight and warm, like you have sunburn. This generally dissipates in a few hours and you may return to your normal duties. Very occasionally there is a risk of pigment change, a small minority of patients develop bruising or blistering, this settles within a few days.
How Many Laser Active Acne Treatments Will I Need?
A series of 8 -16 treatments Laser Active Acne Treatment are usually recommended over a 4- 8 week period, following this further ‘top up treatments’ may be required. On average in 2 – 4 weeks the number of active acne lesions has usually been significantly reduced.
