I was on Accutane with beautiful skin then my acne returned. I started differin and have been on it for 3 months. 95 percent of my acne is gone but I have TONS of red marks now. Can I get IPL for my red marks or will I have to stop using Differin?
Dear patient, Differing gel (unlike Reti A cream) is not photo-sensitizing. This means that you can safely use IPL and Diolite laser/V Beam on the red scars. I am usually more cautious and start at a lower setting.
