IPL or intense pulse light can have a minimal impact on very early red acne scarring. IPL is not a laser, but special wavelength filters can treat red scars. We prefer to use the V Beam laser to target red scars, as this treatment is less painful and works much better than IPL. A course of V-Beam treatment is also more cost effective than IPL.
IPL can remodel collagen, however this process will require 4-5 treatments and is largely outdated, replaced by fractional RadioFrequency and Fractional lasers. Remember that scars lie deep in the dermal layers of skin, and IPL works best on the upper layers of skin.
