Acne treatment

Don’t endure unsightly acne for a moment longer. We can significantly improve your skin with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments or in combination with other clinical offerings. IPL reduces the severity and frequency of breakouts and lessens the inflammation by pulsing light over the affected areas.

Any acne condition can be treated with IPL, although it’s not recommended for pregnant women or those taking Roaccutane (an acne medication). Treatments last about 30 minutes, and are mildly uncomfortable like the flick of an elastic band. The skin is left looking red perhaps with a warm tingling sensation, but these fade after a few hours. Treatments are usually fortnightly.

The number of treatments varies, but usually six IPL treatments produce significant improvements.

Before all  treatments  Dr Fitzgerald will take a medical history, and clearly explain all benefits, risks and side effects associated with the procedure. You will then be asked to sign a consent form. If you are suitable for the treatment, a patch of skin will be tested first and another appointment will be booked. At the follow-up appointment we will assess the results of the patch test and  proceed with the full treatment if appropriate. There is no charge for  the initial consultation and patch test.
