You know well that the horrors of acne can be long lasting. For years you struggled with the state of your skin, trying every cream, lotion, and potion that promised you clear, glowing skin. When that didn’t work, you turned to makeup and cover sticks, hoping that you could hide those red spots and blemishes, all the while wondering if everyone else could see through those layers of foundation. And even now, when your acne has faded some, it left you a parting gift: acne scars! That’s why we offer acne scar removal via IPL!
What Is IPL?
IPL is a type of technology that is used to address a wide range of different facial and skin issues. Basically, IPL uses a laser to produce intense pulses of light over different wavelengths that then penetrate deep into your skin. These light pulses are able to repair and rejuvenate your skin by breaking down the abnormal tissue and cells that are causing your skin issues.
Acne Scars and IPL
Acne scars are the result of the inflammation and damage that acne spots leave behind. When a blemish or acne spot develops deep in your skin and then ruptures, your body will initiate the healing process and start producing collagen. However, because your pore is infected and congested, your collagen doesn’t function right. It will either overproduce in that damaged area, leaving a raised scar; or it will under-produce, leaving a pockmark scar.
IPL can also help treat your current acne breakouts, as the laser is able to kill the bacteria in your skin, which causes acne in the first place. Normally, we recommend multiple treatments spaced out for the best results. During your consultation, we will be able to develop a personalized acne scar removal treatment plan for you.
