IPL Acne Therapy
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is an effective light therapy that has revolutionized the treatment and appearance of acne. The IPL targets and eliminates the most common bacteria that causes acne without the need of medication, discomfort, or recovery time. At MD Skin – The Lounge, we are proud to offer IPL therapy for the treatment of stubborn acne.
How IPL Acne Works
With this treatment, we improve active acne breakouts by targeting acne lesions with precise wavelengths to kill the bacteria and treat inflammation. Our skin care professionals may recommend combining this IPL treatment with other methods of acne-clearing, such as topical products.
Before your treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed by one of our expert skin care professionals. Then a cooling gel will be applied to the treatment area for preparation of IPL therapy. The process takes about 15 minutes and is painless. There may be a little redness following treatment, but this can be covered up by makeup immediately following the session. Generally, acne patients benefit from about 3 to 5 IPL treatments for the most dramatic results.
