IPL

WHAT IS IPL
IPL is a type of treatment used to help reduce certain skin problems as well as the removal of unwanted hair. The results are usually almost immediate and obvious. Below, you will find some basic information about IPL and what it can offer. It may be the right treatment for you.

HOW DOES IT WORK
IPL works by sending strong pulses of light into the skin. The treatment is specifically targets the deep tissue area of the skin, where damage originates. There are different types of the IPL treatment to target and repair different types of damage. Your specific needs will discussed during your initial consultation with our trained technician.

IPL TREATMENTS ARE COMMONLY USED FOR

  • Removing sun spots, age spots and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body
  • Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels and broken blood vessels on the face, neck and chest
  • Improving skin texture through collagen stimulation, improving pore size by temporarily reducing oiliness
  • Removing unwanted hair

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS
IPL treatments do not damage the outer part of the skin. In fact, most patients do not have any side effects other than a little discomfort. With many different facial resurfacing treatments, like microdermabrasion, patients will have damage done to the outer surface of the skin. This is not true with IPL, so many patients are able to resume normal life right after the treatment..

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS
Usually, patients will need to undergo a series of treatments, ranging from four to six, depending on the extent of the damage that needs to be repaired. A patient may not see perfect results until the latter treatments. You can see some improvement with each treatment, but it’s common for your response to be slightly different to each treatment. The more sun damage or redness you have, the more likely you are to need a full five treatments.  Some cases of severe redness or brown spots require more than 5 treatments. Expect to see gradual clearing over time.

DO IPL TREATMENTS HURT AND HOW LONG DO THEY TAKE
There may be mild discomfort during the treatment, but most patients tolerate removal of dilated blood vessels or age spots/freckles and fine lines very easily. The first treatment is usually the “zingiest.” As your skin begins to clear, the treatments usually become even more comfortable. Treatment times may vary, depending on the size of the treatment area.

WHAT IS THE IPL TREATMENT PROCESS
Your technician will put special glasses or eye pads over your eyes to protect them. A cool gel is then placed on the skin being treated. The smooth glass surface of the handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light flash. You may feel a very slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. At the end of the treatment, the nurse wipes off the gel, cleans the area with a warm cloth, and applies a moisturizer with sunscreen. If there is any mild swelling, you might be given a cold pack to apply for five or ten minutes. Mineral based makeup can be applied before returning back to work, school, etc.

WHAT WILL RECOVERY BE LIKE
Recovery time is virtually non-existent. Some redness may occur after the treatment, but is easily covered. Patients are able to return to normal daily activities the same day as their photofacial rejuvenation treatment.
