Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a non-laser cosmetic treatment that helps rejuvenate the skin. It is proven to be an effective procedure to correct and improve skin tone. It is particularly effective in treating:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Irregular pigmentation
- Broken capillaries
- Fine lines
How IPL Works
Different from a laser which delivers only one wavelength of light, IPL emits a wide spectrum of light onto your skin’s surface. This allows it to enhance a broader area of damaged skin cells with each pulse. IPL treatments typically require multiple sessions, and with each session, your skin will begin to take on a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The number of treatments needed will vary for each patient, depending on the level of skin damage.
Benefits of IPL
IPL treatments are safe and effective, do not require any anesthesia, and in most cases, offer almost immediate results. We are also able to customize this procedure to effectively treat each patient’s individual skin issues. Additionally, there is no downtime associated with this treatment, minimal pain, and each session is typically less than 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. There is a low risk of side effects, and IPL can be safely used to treat virtually any area on the body.
Best Candidates for IPL
IPL is ideal for those with mild to moderate skin blemishes, such as sun spots, age spots, large pores, acne scars, wrinkles and freckles. IPL can help with acne as well; the heat destroys the bacteria causing the outbreaks.
Results Happen Naturally
Since IPL stimulates collagen remodeling and regeneration, you will be able to see a difference in your complexion within a few days, but it will take a few weeks to see the full results.
