How to reduce acne redness


Our tips for reducing the redness from acne and inflammation.

Pimples and acne breakouts are often accompanied by raised, red and inflamed skin that can have a big impact on skin confidence. 

While a good skincare routine can help, for persistent redness you may want to look into more targeted treatments that provide real, long-lasting results – such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), also known as photorejuvenation or laser skin resurfacing. 

How effective is IPL at reducing acne redness? 

IPL allows for laser energy to be pulsed through the skin’s surface, targeting blood vessels and capillaries and triggering the body’s natural healing process. This allows for the skin to repair itself, resulting in reduced redness, improved skin texture and tone. 

While the effects of the treatment are long-lasting, for best results we would recommend combining your IPL treatments with a dedicated skincare routine and other conditioning treatments to help hydrate and improve your overall skin health. 

We understand it can be intimidating going to the professionals, which is why we offer free consultations with our team of skin experts at every Skinsmiths clinic.
