IPL can only help target melasma that is located in the superficial layer. Melasma is difficult to remove as they are deep. At Healthy Look Aesthetic, we suggest chemical peeling or personalized mesotherapy to treat deep melasma. Instead, IPL is an ideal choice for superficial pigmentation.
No. Although many clinics promote IPL as the treatment for acne scars, the scientific evidence doesn’t support this. For the acne scar, we recommend another treatment like Dermapen, PRP, subcision, bio revitalization injection, chemical peeling, TCA cross, and personalized mesotherapy.

The side effects of IPL are very rare, such as redness and swelling. The side effects usually ease within a matter of days.
It uses light with similar technology to the laser. The laser directs just one beam of light at your skin, while IPL releases a broad wavelength of light that is pulsed onto the skin. IPL penetrates deeper into the dermis without injuring the superficial layer (epidermis), therefore IPL has no downtime.
