Complexion & Scar Repair Q&A

How do laser and IPL treatments improve complexions and reduce scars?

At Above and Beyond Clinics, the team uses laser treatments and IPL therapy for skin resurfacing. The energy of the laser removes the most damaged outer layers of your skin to reveal a healthy, fresh complexion.

IPL uses light wavelengths of different intensities to absorb excess pigment in the skin and even out your complexion. Both treatments stimulate collagen production to create firmer, more resilient skin. Collagen is a natural protein that provides strength and elasticity to your skin.

What types of scars can laser and IPL treatments repair?

Laser treatments are effective on a few kinds of scars. These include:

  • Acne scars

  • Surgical scars

  • Scars from injuries or disease, such as chickenpox

The energy from the laser targets the discoloration and uneven texture of scars to reduce their appearance.

What is the difference between IPL therapy and laser treatment?

Lasers use a singular wavelength to treat a specific scar while IPL uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths. IPL’s differing wavelengths means it can target a number of different skin conditions to even out your entire complexion, reducing the appearance of age spots and blood vessels too.

What are the benefits of laser and IPL treatments?

IPL and laser treatments offer a noninvasive way to repair scars and revitalize your complexion. You don’t have to undergo any injections or incisions, which means you can also avoid possible infections.

IPL and laser treatments also don’t require a lot of downtime afterward, so you can go back to your normal activities sooner. 

How many treatments will I need?

Exactly how many treatments you need will depend on the depth of your scars and the extent of other complexion issues you wish to repair.

The providers at Above and Beyond Clinics evaluate your skin and give you a customized treatment plan. Many people see results after just one treatment while others benefit from a series of treatments.

When will I see results?

It can take a few months for the results of your laser and IPL treatments to show. This is because your skin is developing new collagen and skin cells to restore your skin’s smoothness and tone. It takes time for this process to happen.
