Whether you are a teenager or an adult, living with acne is a frustrating and distressing thing. Likely, you have tried over-the-counter treatments and have been disappointed with the results. IPL, also known as intense pulsed light, treatments may be exactly what you need to get your acne outbreaks under control.

IPL treatments use a wide spectrum of light with the goal of targeting melanin and hemoglobin. This is why IPL treatments are often used to clear up sunspots, red veins, and other marks that rob your skin of its smooth and beautiful appearance. IPL treatments produce positive results, but most people will need to have three or four treatments before they see the optimal results.

An IPL Photofacial has been shown to be an effective treatment for acne. It not only addresses the active acne you have, but it can also help remove acne scars. This is important because sometimes the scars can make you self-conscious about your appearance, more than the acne itself. What’s nice about IPL Photofacial treatments is that, when they are combined with other treatments provided by our dermatologist, they serve as a powerful tool in giving you clear skin.

IPL Photofacials can also improve the appearance of wrinkles, help individuals battling rosacea, diminish the appearance of freckles, and can treat acne scarring. What is nice is that this treatment can be used anywhere on your body. If you are battling with acne and acne scars on your chest, IPL treatment may be able to help.

When you arrive at our office, we will cleanse your skin. IPL treatments are relatively fast. They take somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes. Once the treatment is complete, your face will be cleansed again, and sunscreen will be applied to protect you when you go out into the sun.

Although IPL treatment is powerful, it does not require the use of numbing creams, nor does it require extensive recovery time. Most people can go right back to their everyday activities immediately after having an IPL Photofacial done. Many see an IPL Photofacial as a relaxing and warm sensation. After the treatment, you may have some mild redness and tenderness, but this is going to go away over the course of the next day or two.

Most patients begin to see results in after multiple treatments. The results are long-lasting and can be maintained as long as proper skin care routines are followed.
