Radiance Cosmetic Clinic is proud to introduce the latest in acne treatment and acne scarring treatment technology with ilia advanced pulsed light platform and fractional laser from Alma, Israel (FDA approved). Considered "the most powerful laser and pulsed light aesthetic system in the world",Ilia Pulsed Light Platform has been designed to target acne and hinder the possibility of future breakouts without the administration of drugs or other harsh creams and ointments. It can also eliminate the appearance of acne scarring.
Laser Acne Treatment
For the purpose of acne removal treatment, the ilia system is fitted with the 420 handpiece . This handpiece, emits powerful pulsed light at a wavelength that is preferentially absorbed by a naturally occurring chemical in the afflicted skin known as porphyrins. Propionibacterium acnes (P. Acnes), the name of the bacteria related to acne, produces porphyrins to assist in its metabolism. However, when exposed to a specific wavelength of light, these porphyrins change and have a negative impact on the metabolism, thereby destroying it. It also reduces the overactive sebaceous glands as a which over secretion of oil is prevented. It is in this way that future breakouts of acne are inhibited, with a gradual reduction in the amount of acne over a series of sessions.
The wavelength of light which the handpiece emits is at 430-700nm in a blue spectrum. Because of a special cooling system and unique spectrum technology of the device, the skin is not damaged by being exposed during treatment. Patients find that there are few side effects from this relatively gentle acne treatment method, if any are experienced at all. This is a great alternative to acne medications, both topically or orally administered, which tend to have a number of side effects.
Acne Scarring and Laser Acne Scar Removal
You used to have acne, but luckily you don't have to deal with that anymore. Unfortunately, what you do have to deal with is the painful reminder of the breakouts you used to have - a complexion riddled with acne scars.
Acne scars come in various depths and sizes. They may be small and barely noticeable or very prominent. Prominent scars generally have a different texture from surrounding unaffected skin and can also be in the form of pockmarks. Any pockmarks or roughness that appear are the result of an alteration in the skin's collagen structure.
Discolouration is also quite common. Some extent of discolouration is almost always a feature of acne scarring and may be lighter or darker than the unaffected skin.
To treat acne scarring, Radiance Cosmetic Clinic has added the Fractional Erbium Yag from Alma , one of the best lasers in the world to be approved by USA FDA. Fitted with the Pixel Laser Handpiece, the device has been designed to remove the appearance of acne scars by stimulating the production of collagen. It doesn’t damage your skin but rather improves the appearance of acne scars as well as the colour and texture of skin. This form of nonablative skin resurfacing to treat acne scars involves little to no downtime so you can get right back to your normal activities immediately after a session. It is virtually painless and has been designed to leave your skin smooth, even-toned and free of blemishes.
Other than offering laser for acne and acne scars radiance also combines some of the other procedures like blue light , dermaroller and microdermabrasion to achieve best results.
