Acne Treatment

Say goodbye to acne and hello to fabulous and smooth looking skin

Acne treatments using advanced light-based technology. Dynamic Pulse Control (DPC) is safe and effective for treating mild and moderate inflammatory acne. The light energy destroys the bacteria that causes the acne and enhances the healing process by increasing blood flow to the skin.
Acne doesn’t have to be part of your life anymore. You can easily restore your skin to its natural beauty using a quick and simple drug-free method. Say goodbye to creams and medications, and hello to soft and smooth skin that you will absolutely love. Acne is one of the most common skin concerns and affects almost 80% of individuals aged 11-30. It can be caused by a variety of factors such as hormonal imbalance, stress, or environmental factors such as air pollution.

How does it work?

Dynamic Pulse Control (DPC) is a light-based technology that has been clinically proven to effectively treat mild to moderate acne. DPC uses three effective, safe, and reliable clinical mechanisms: Visible Blue light absorption to destroy the bacteria, Yellow light to coagulate the feeding blood vessels and Infrared light to dry the lesions. Clients enjoy the benefits of a painless treatment where results are achieved quickly without any side effects.
