Does IPL get rid of blackheads?

Yes (to an extent), IPL Photo facial can help reduce blackheads. IPL works by removing excess oil and dead skin cells from the pores, which clog them and cause breakouts.


Intense light pulses have a revitalizing impact on the skin and can penetrate deep into the skin to eliminate bacteria and stimulate collagen synthesis.

As a result, your skin tone will improve, your oil production will decrease, and your pores will be more refined.

Light pulses are targeted on the skin cell layers responsible for cell regeneration while avoiding damage to the skin's surface layers.


All in all, IPL can help refine and tighten the pores resulting in less blackheads, however a deep cleansing facial with blackhead extractions is the best treatment to completely and thoroughly eliminate blackheads.
