Age Requirement for Getting IPL?

I want to get the IPL treatment for my blemishes and some acne scars. Is there an age requirement for this treatment? I'm 23.

Age for IPL

The main issue concerning age and any cosmetic treatment is being of a legal and/or mature enough age to understand the risks and benefits of a particular treatment. 23 years of age is certainly not too early to start IPL.
