IPL Acne Away Laser Treatment

Non-Invasive - Medication Free Acne Treatment!

Acne Laser Treatment

Bio2 Laser Studio offers IPL Acne Treatments, a pain-free skin treatment that uses light-based technology to create a more even complexion by targeting acne. The process kills bacteria and decreases inflammation, resulting in smoother, clearer skin!

IPL acne treatment is often considered an alternative to medications because it targets the underlying causes of acne rather than just treating the symptoms. Medications such as topical creams and oral antibiotics can be effective in reducing the symptoms of acne, but they do not address the underlying causes of the condition.


IPL acne treatment targets the bacteria that causes acne, as well as reducing inflammation and promoting collagen production. This can lead to improvement in overall skin appearance, not just treating the existing acne.

Additionally, some people may not be able to use medications due to allergies or other medical conditions, or they may not want to take oral medications. IPL acne treatment is a non-invasive procedure that does not require the use of medication, making it a suitable option for those who cannot or do not want to take medication.

It's important to note that IPL treatment is not always better than medication and vice versa. It depends on the individual and the severity of the acne.

IPL may be the perfect solution for you. IPL is a form of light therapy that uses narrow, intense beams of light to destroy unwanted cells. This treatment is often used to treat acne, and it has been shown to be very effective at removing blackheads and other skin problems.

IPL is not a one and done treatment. It will take several to be an effective acne treatment. The number depends on the severity of the condition. Mild acne may only require 4-6 treatments while a more chronic case may require IPL sessions on a regular schedule to keep breakouts under control. 

It might be effective for very mild cases,  but it is not as powerful as commercial units. It also lacks the settings needed for precise treatments.

 IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) acne treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses specific wavelengths of light to target and reduce the appearance of acne. It works by targeting the bacteria that causes acne, as well as reducing inflammation and promoting collagen production to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver intense pulses of light to the affected area. The light penetrates the skin and targets the bacteria and inflammation associated with acne. The heat from the light also helps to stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of acne scarring.

The treatment can cause some very slight discomfort, but it is generally well tolerated. Some patients may experience a mild warming or tingling sensation during the treatment. Intensity of the treatment is controlled by the technician and equipment used,  so it can vary from one clinic to another.
