Acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S.
Affecting up to 50 million Americans each year. Skin has tiny openings called pores that release oils and sweat. When oil, sweat, and dirt get trapped inside those pores, it can cause pimples to form, leading to unwanted acne outbreaks.
Types of acnE
White heads: closed bumps under the surface of the skin
Black heads: open bumps turned black from oxygen exposure
Cysts: large, painful lumps under the skin that contain pus
Pustules: tiny red pimples with pus at the tips
Papules: small red bumps from infected hair follicles

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treats hyperpigmentation from acne scarring by targeting melanin (pigment-producing cells) in the skin. When melanin absorbs light, that energy transforms into heat and destroys hyperactive melanin, giving you a more evenly toned complexion. The pulsed light also destroys the bacteria which contributes to acne.
