IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Therapy

Are you tired of seeing age and sun spots when you look in the mirror? How about spider veins, broken capillaries, freckles, and large, visible pores? These common issues typically occur due to aging, sun exposure, or hormonal fluctuations. Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL) is a simple outpatient procedure that will improve the appearance of your skin.

 

What does IPL treat?

The face is the most popular place to have this treatment, but you can also treat your chest, hands or neck. Besides the issues mentioned above, IPL therapy is an excellent treatment option for the following:

  • Brown or age spots (hyperpigmentation)
  • Excessive flushing
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Scarring
  • Spots
  • Large visible pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Texture problems
  • Wrinkles

 

Understanding the IPL procedure

Once your skin care issue has been evaluated, we will deliver intense pulsed light (IPL) to the treatment area, using the level of energy and settings that we determine to be best for you. Your skin tissues absorb the light energy and that stimulates the production of new collagen. The result is that your aging or damaged skin begins to soften, which allows your wrinkles, uneven texture or other specific problems to self-correct as well.

You will notice a difference after one treatment, however, some patients complete up to six treatments spaced approximately two weeks apart. There is no downtime between sessions, and you can resume regular activities right away.

 

IPL treats many skin conditions

Most commonly treated areas include the face, neck and chest, other common areas include the hands, arms, legs and even the back. We encourage you to come in to ask questions and see before and after photos so that we can provide you with a custom treatment plan, just for you.
