VenusVersa™ ACDUAL for acne treatment.
Acne is a result of overactive sebaceous glands that produce too much oil creating clogged pores, and leading to a growth of P.acnes which can cause more breakouts. IPL is done to target P.acnes and can also shrink the sebaceous glands. Many things can cause breakouts from hormonal changes, medications, cosmetics or skincare, lack of skincare, sun exposure and stress.
