Whether it is freckles or spots that have appeared over time due to age or sun exposure, these skin imperfections can be treated with IPL therapy. And for those looking to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, IPL has exceptional results.
Benefits include reduced pore size, reduced wrinkle size, and a more even skin tone.
What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy?
IPL is one of the newer forms of facial rejuvenation. Unlike lasers, which use intense, focused light, IPL is intense broadband light. Although IPL delivers energy to both the superficial (epidermis) and deep (dermis) layers of the skin, the epidermis is spared from damage. Thus, there is virtually no recovery time. In the studies that have been performed so far, IPL can smooth the skin, remove age spots, freckles, Melasma, and even visible blood vessels. IPL may tighten skin and improve fine lines.
What is the IPL procedure like?
Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied and you will be given protective eyewear. During treatment, the IPL hand piece is applied to the skin. Light is delivered to the skin surface in pulses.
How long does the IPL procedure take?
Each session usually lasts about 20 minutes, and you should return to normal activity immediately afterwards.
What will my face feel like after IPL treatment?
IPL therapy brings about gradual changes over the course of the treatments. After a full course, you may notice improved texture of skin, decreased redness, more even color, and youthful skin tone.
How long before I can return to normal activities?
You should be able to return to normal activities immediately. You may experience mild redness, but it usually disappears within a few hours.
