Acne Clearance


It is estimated that acne vulgaris afflicts over 30 million Americans. Approximately 30% of all Americans between the ages of 15 and 44 have active acne lesions at any given time. Traditional acne treatments (including topical applications and oral medications) are expensive and are known for numerous side effects and tend to continue for many months or even years.

Intense Pulsed Light Photothermal Therapy 

The use of intense pulse light photothermal therapy is a proven, safe, effective, and convenient treatment for acne. The proprietary technology featured by the NannoLight system has been shown in extensive testing to provide acne clearance of up to 90% in four weeks (8 sessions) without the complications and side effects associated with traditional acne treatments.

Greater Speed, Improved Comfort

NannoLight is faster than most lasers and other IPL systems, making treatments fast and efficient. NannoLight’s chilled sapphire tip provides skin cooling to keep the skin cool while heating up the targeted chromophores to accomplish the desired result.

Safety and Efficacy

NannoLight’s greater versatility and contact cooling allow greater safety, fewer side effects, and higher efficacy then other systems on the market.

What can I expect from my Light treatment program?

At your first visit, you will probably be asked to fill out a medical history, and your treatment provider will discuss with you a treatment schedule and the results you can expect from your NannoLight treatments. You will also have a “spot test” done to determine the most effective power level for your skin type and condition.

Required Number of NannoLight Treatments:

Every patient is different, and the number of treatments required for improvement depends on a variety of factors. Most cases require two treatments per week for four consecutive weeks. Some conditions may require additional treatments and even different types of treatments for ideal acne clearance.

NannoLight protocols and treatment parameters:
The key to safe and effective IPL removal of pigmented lesions is careful selection of the proper wavelength spectra, pulse width, and energy density (“fluence”), which varies considerably based on skin tone, type of lesion and lasers in allowing the selection of different filters and treatment parameters to provide the best results safely and comfortably.

“Selective Photothermolysis”

Nannolight is able to safely and effectively remove age spots, “liver spots”, sun spots, and spider veins with little to no downtime.

NannoLight is an intense pulsed light (IPL) system.
The system uses light and heat to target certain chromophores in the skin that cause the discolorations, often related to sun damage and the natural aging process, while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Our clients often return to work immediately following treatment!

Pulsed Light Photorejuvenation

Recent studies have shown that intense Pulsed Light systems are showing successful improvement of fine lines and wrinkles due to the stimulating thermal energy produced by IPL. NannoLight utilizes a selected broadband of light and is capable of treating a wide variety of skin concerns for a variety of skin types, including fine lines and wrinkles.

The NannoLight System utilizes a precisely filtered band of intense pulsed light to clear acne. NannoLight performs acne photoclearance. The NannoLight treatments activate a photothermal reaction in the porphyrin molecules associated with the P.acnes bacteria.

This combination of intense green-yellow light energy destroys the P.acnes bacteria. A red wavelength of light is also utilized by the NannoLight to provide anti-inflammatory results. Because the NannoLight utilizes a special ‘anti-acne’ selected broadband spectrum of light, it is capable of treating wide varieties of acne, including mild to pustular inflammatory P.acnes vulgaris.
