Treating Acne with IPL

Treating AcneAcne is an extremely common skin condition, impacting as many as 50 million people in the United States every year. While acne is the most prevalent among teenagers, it can also remain in your 20s, 30s, and even 40s. So, if over-the-counter acne treatments just aren’t cutting it for your complexion, you may want to consider professional treatment. 

At Florida Face and Body, we offer IPL therapy for acne. This potent treatment is an ideal choice for acne and damaged skin. Non-invasive and precise, IPL therapy can improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating acne. 

What is IPL Therapy?

IIPL stands for intense pulsed light. During IPL therapy, a range of pulsed light wavelengths are administered to the skin with a high-precision device. This method can be used to address many skin concerns, including scarring and hyperpigmentation. For acne, however, it works by eradicating the bacteria and excess sebum that can lead to acne. The pigment cells in the skin absorb IPL energy, which converts into heat. This heat then kills acne-causing bacteria in the pores.

IPL therapy supports clear pores and an acne-free complexion. Targeted IPL also stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, causing it to produce additional collagen. Collagen affords strength and structure to the skin. Typically, patients undergo two to six IPL therapy sessions, with a few weeks in between each session. 

What Are The Benefits of IPL Therapy For Acne?

IPL therapy provides many benefits seeking acne relief, including:

  • Noticeable results to even moderate and severe acne
  • Speed, given that IPL therapy treatment only lasts for approximately 5 minutes
  • Minimal downtime, with patients able to return to their regular activities immediately after treatment
  • Safety, as IPL therapy is a non-invasive treatment option
