Clear your acne blemishes with easy pulsed light treatments.




WHAT CAUSES ACNE? Acne occurs when the skin’s sebaceous glands become overactive, creating cellular debris, called sebum, which plugs the pores. Bacteria accumulates in the blocked pores and leads. Acne generally begins in puberty but can last well into adulthood.


PULSED LIGHT: HOW DOES IT WORK? Pulses of filtered light are directed onto the skin and absorbed by the bacteria and sebaceous glands. Pulsed light systems are similar to lasers but with a larger beam for wider coverage and faster, more comfortable treatments.

The Palomar Pulsed Light System attacks acne on two fronts:


  • It attacks bacteria to clear current acne breakouts.
  • It decreases the production of sebum, which clogs pores and traps bacteria, leading to future acne breakouts. 


    What Happens After Acne Treatment?

    Your skin may be slightly red after treatment. The acne blemishes shrink and become less noticeable, and then fade after approximately one week.

    Will the Treatments Hurt?

    Palomar Pulsed Light Systems use a unique long pulsewidth that delivers energy to the skin over a relatively long period of time. This makes the pulses safer and more comfortable. You may experience a feeling similar to that of a rubber band being snapped on the skin, but most people do not report this sensation as painful.

    Are There Any Adverse Reactions to Treatment?

    You may experience temporary redness and a mild “sunburn”- like effect that may last a few hours to a few days.
