IPL for Acne and
Age Spots

You glow girl!

Acne, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring are all common (and often frustrating) skin concerns. Thankfully, IPL is available as an effective, non-invasive treatment method to improve the health and appearance of your skin.

IPL stands for “intense pulsed light” therapy. This treatment method is ideal for reducing the appearance of acne, scarring, and age spots. IPL targets the treatment area to precisely damage the skin tissue that has an excess of melanin. By deliberately damaging the skin in a controlled environment, IPL triggers the skin’s natural healing response. This increases collagen production to improve the appearance of damaged, scarred skin. 

Top Benefits of IPL

Best Candidates for IPL

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone

Procedure Details

IPL breaks up pigments in the skin. This encourages areas of the skin with hyperpigmentation or age spots to flake away, allowing new, healthy skin to reach the surface. In the case of acne, IPL kills acne-causing bacteria and excess sebum. This clears out the pores to support a clear complexion.

IPL is non-invasive and doesn’t cause discomfort. The treatment lasts for approximately 30 minutes, and you can return to your regular activities immediately afterward. 

IPL typically requires no downtime, but we’ll advise you on the aftercare that’s right for you. The best results are typically seen after two to six IPL treatment sessions, which should be spaced a few weeks apart.
