How it Works

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.

When your skin absorbs the light energy, it heats up and you will expe­ri­ence a brief, pin­prick sen­sa­tion. A layer of chilled gel applied before treat­ment helps to ease the dis­com­fort, and as each indi­vid­ual pulse of light can treat a gen­er­ous area of skin, IPL treat­ments are gen­er­ally quite short. A typ­i­cal ses­sion ranges from 20 to 30 min­utes, and most patients require between four and six ses­sions to achieve the desired results.

Acne scarring can affect both the color and texture of the skin. Scars may appear as small dents in the skin’s surface or as raised scar tissue. In either case, scarring often creates uneven pigmentation in the form of redness or dark spots. Because Intense Pulsed Light can target pigment cells specifically, IPL treatments are effec­tive for evening out dis­col­oration, which dra­mat­i­cally reduces the visibility of acne scars and gives the appearance of a more uniform skin surface. IPL does not smooth out raised scars or decrease the depth of indented scars.
