It is often thought that, in order to get the better of spots and acne breakouts, it is necessary to use strong, alcohol based products to dry the skin out. Unfortunately, these same products can make the situation worse by stripping the skin of natural oils and encouraging the sebum glands to work even harder. This increased production of sebum produces increased skin congestion and provides the perfect environment for further bacterial growth.
At Beauty Within medi-spa, we believe in a less aggressive approach using a variety of well-targeted and properly formulated treatment products, non-laser treatments and as our first-line treatment, the AFT 420 – 950nm IPLS treatment (Advance Fluorescence Technology).
We can clear inflammatory acne lesions without drugs or undesirable side effects using Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) Acne Treatment. The Hand piece delivers Intense blue wavelengths of light in the range 420 – 950nm to target the porphyrins produced as part of the normal metabolism of p. acnes bacteria. The interaction of the intense blue light and the porphyrins creates singlet oxygen that rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Acne treatments with AFT are:
- Non invasive
- No topical or systemic drugs
- Completely painless, no adverse effects or down time
- Easy to administer with an ergonomic Hand piece design
In addition to the AFT acne treatment we may recommend Skin Med products such as the Skincare range and Cytoceuticals tebiskin product medical devices. The Tebiskin product range is particularly suited to use in combination with ENERPEEL product medical device peels.
