Acne is an extremely common inflammatory skin condition that many people get during adolescence as hormones fluctuate. Despite being especially common in teenagers, acne can affect you at any age due to various factors like hormones, stress, diet, or certain medications.
You get pimples and acne lesions when the pores in your skin clog with sebum (a natural oil your skin produces), dead skin cells, and bacteria. The bacteria are what make acne inflammatory. You might experience swelling and redness around your acne, which eventually goes down on its own.
The inflammation of an acne breakout can damage your skin and lead to acne scars, which give your skin a bumpy and textured appearance. You’re more at risk of acne scars if you pop your pimples. Whether you have active acne, acne scars, or both, the Ice Cave Body Sculpting team can offer advice and treatment.
Ice Cave Body Sculpting uses Forever Clear BBL® (broadband light) to treat acne. This treatment doesn’t involve any chemicals, creams, or medication. Instead, it uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to deliver multiwavelength light energy deep into your skin. The treatment stimulates skin cell regeneration to improve your skin and reduce excessive oil production.
BBL treatments also reduce skin discoloration, which includes discoloration associated with acne scars. The team might recommend a facial rejuvenation procedure to increase collagen and smoothen your skin if you want to target texture concerns from acne scars.
Following your acne treatment at Ice Cave Body Sculpting, you can return home right away with no downtime. Any redness from the treatment can be covered up immediately with makeup. However, there are a few recommendations you should follow for about a week as your skin heals.
The team recommends:
Most of the initial redness goes away within a few hours, but your skin continues to heal under the surface. You might need several treatments to clear your acne entirely.
