SpectraClear Intense Pulsed Light or IPL Blue is used to treat mild to moderate inflammatory acne lesions in 1/3 the time it takes for standard topical and oral treatments, without adverse side effects.
What Causes Acne
The Culprit Acne is caused by androgens, male hormones present in both men and women. These hormones stimulate oil production, and the excess oil clogs hair follicles where bacteria cause acne pimples and blemishes. Stress stimulates the gland that produces androgens. So if you heard that acne was caused by adolescent hormones that would soon stop running amok, that advice was only partially right. Seems you never really grow out of hormones.
Photoepilation: The 21st Century Solution
The SpectraClear System features proprietary LHE (Light andHeat Energy) also known as IPL or Laser technology, based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. SpectraClear delivers a deeply penetrating green-yellow wavelength light to activate a photo thermal reaction in the porphyrin molecules, causing the release of free oxygen to destroy P. Acnes bacteria. Heat simultaneously delivered to the skin accelerates the photo thermal reaction and bacteria destruction. The additional red wavelength light activates the porphyrin to reduce the inflammation common to acne lesions.
