Intense Pulsated Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsated Light (IPL) is a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging skin conditions. The result is an exceptionally effective skin revitalization treatment with minimal discomfort.

What does IPL treat?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is used to treat sun damage, age spots, vascular lesions, and rosacea. The treatment helps balance color and offers an overall improvement in complexion. It is commonly used on the face, neck, shoulders, back, and hands.

How does it work?

The light penetrates the skin at a range of wavelengths that targets red and brown spots, resulting in a more even skin tone. IPL offers non-invasive photorejuvenation effects through pulses of concentrated light to target blood vessels and pigmented lesions on the face, neck, hands and chest to smooth and rejuvenate the skin. The light passes through the skin without injury to the skin surface.

How long will the treatment take?

Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.

How many treatments will I need?

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.

When will I see results?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.

Will the spots and redness reappear over time?

New brown spots and redness may appear with new sun damage. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
