Is there a certain amount of time I should wait to get an IPL if I just had a few inflamed acne that went away but left a red mark (no indentations)?

IPL and inflammatory acne
IPL especially when combined with Levulan can be therapeutic for active acne but should be performed with guidance from your dermatologist.
IPL After Inflamed Acne Goes Away
I would recommend at least a 3 month wait. Than discuss with the treating doctor before having the treatment. Very important you inform them of the acne issue.
Redness after acne and IPL
Acne can leave post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and redness, but usually, this redness fades. It is best to give it about 4 weeks before resorting to IPL to take the redness away. Another option is VBeam.
