IPL for acne scars
You need an assessment by a Dermatologist to determine if you have red macular scarring which would improve with IPL, or whether you have hyperpigmentation, rolled or box scar, or ice pick scars which would benefit moreso from a resurfacing laser like CO2 or the newer fractionated lasers.
Sorry IPL Will Help Minimally
The gold standard remains ablative CO2 laser resurfacing with Er: Yag a second choice. Due to medical-legal issues, you may have trouble finding a physician to do this. Also, more than one treatment may be required.
