Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a cosmetic treatment that improves the color and texture of your skin. It is non-invasive, reverses some of the visible damage you get from ultraviolet rays, and reduces the signs of aging.
You can also use it to lighten darker patches on your skin. It reduces the appearance of scars, birthmarks, spider veins, and redness associated with Rosacea.
Why Choose IPL?
IPL has no downtime. You will be in and out of the doctor’s office in less than an hour. Hence, you can easily fit it into your busy lifestyle. It also reduces the effects of sun exposure on your face, hands, or chest. This treatment will have your skin looking youthful and healthy.
How Does It Work?
IPL uses light energy to target and remove damaged skin cells. Unlike lasers, the device uses multiple pulsating wavelengths of light. The light heats skin cells and breaks them down. Afterward, the body removes them through its natural processes.
Who Can Benefit?
IPL works best on pale or light brown skin. It helps deal with several skin issues that cause unseen damage. It is fast, so you can get back to your daily activities after you are through with the treatment. So, who can benefit from this therapy?
Acne and Acne Scars
IPL can help if you have acne or scars from acne. It targets the causes of acne under the skin while keeping the skin’s top layer safe. When dealing with acne, the provider uses three filters or light wavelengths. Each targets different skin conditions. Blue light destroys acne bacteria, yellow light targets acne lesions, while red light paralyzes overactive oil glands. The treatment depends on the severity of your skin condition.
If your face appears blushing and you have acne-like bumps, you likely have rosacea. It causes redness on your chin, cheeks, forehead, and nose. After a while, broken blood vessels might show through your skin. IPL can get rid of 50 to 75 percent of broken blood vessels. Sometimes, they will completely go away. The results of your treatment will depend on the severity of your condition.
IPL treatments deal with the brown spots and redness that ultraviolet rays cause. It can also target problems that are yet to rise to the surface. It is your number one defense against premature aging.
