IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a laser treatment used to treat vascular conditions like broken capillaries (“spider veins”), Rosacea (a chronic skin condition that causes redness and acne), brown spots or “age spots” caused by sun damage on the face, hands and body and textural irregularities, such as rough skin and fine lines. In addition, IPL stimulates the production of collagen and tightens large pores.
IPL is also referred to as a photofacial.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Does IPL Work?
IPL uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin’s surface, damaging either the melanin that makes up brown “age spots” or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone.
It generally takes a series of treatments to see the best results, usually three to six treatments, and spaced one month apart. Treatment is safe and effective. As with any laser procedure, sun exposure must be avoided following treatment for at least 2 weeks.
