IPL Laser Acne Treatment
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are becoming widely recognized as an effective solution for those suffering from mild to moderate inflammatory acne.Besides clearing up pustules and active inflammation, IPL has the added benefit of improving the appearance of facial scarring, which is an unfortunate but common outcome of chronic acne.
During IPL treatments, short pulses of intense light are emitted from an applicator onto your skin. To treat acne, specific wavelengths of light target bacteria in the skin, as well as inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to breakouts. IPL energy at various wavelengths is also used to selectively destroy pigment cells, blood-filled capillary veins, or hair, depending on the intended nature of your treatment.
