What can IPL laser treatment address?IPL treatment can be used not only for rosacea, but also for:
- Acne scarring
- Facial discoloration

Who is a candidate?Everyone is a viable candidate for IPL laser treatment. This is because the devices have been cleared by the FDA and can be used on all skin types. However, it is incredibly important for patients to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo for an initial evaluation and to discuss the process of treatment with IPL therapy, as it does require several sessions. There is no downtime involved, ensuring patients have no interruptions in their daily lifestyle.
