Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

IPL Photorejuvenation

Exploring the possibility of a photofacial treatment that provides you with results that last up to a year with proper care? Bid farewell to dull, aged skin with intense pulsed light therapy – the holistic approach to skin rejuvenation.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses a broad spectrum of light energy to generate heat that targets a variety of skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and acne. IPL photorejuvenation treatments target the deeper layers of the skin, and can safely be combined with other treatments that target the surface layer of skin. High-intensity pulses of light specifically target excess melanin and redness, all while promoting collagen growth. IPL can also be used to treat broken capillaries that may appear in your skin as a result of sun damage.

  • Purpose: Skin rejuvenation and collagen production.

  • Recovery: Mild swelling and redness.

  • Results: Reduces signs of sun damage, improves skin tone, and prevents future breakouts.

More About Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

How Can I Prepare for Intense Pulsed Light Treatment?

Review your medical history with a healthcare professional. Avoid exposure to UV rays as well as self-tanning products prior to treatment to avoid adverse reactions. Avoid tweezing or waxing this area.

  • Ensure targeted area of treatment is clean shaven.

  • Wear comfortable clothing the day of your procedure.

  • Receive a HydraFacial prior to treatment to prep your skin for optimal results.

What Can I Expect?

Pain

Throughout your treatment, you will feel a warm sensation caused by pulses of light. We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the whole procedure, and if you experience slight discomfort, we may offer you a topical anesthetic to reduce any sensation. Little to no pain can be experienced post-operatively.

 

Recovery

Your skin may appear red and feel sensitive for a couple days following your treatment. Many patients experience a darkening of freckles and brown spots in the treated area that can be compared to the appearance of “coffee grounds.” These will linger for a few days until they fall off. You may apply emollients until the area appears completely healed.

Results

Following your IPL treatment, you will see a noticeable improvement in skin tone as this treatment reduces existing sun damage. The results from IPL treatments are long lasting when combined with proper lifestyle habits and skin care. Peak results are revealed around four weeks after your most recent treatment.
