Damaged and aging skin looks remarkably different from healthy and youthful skin. Aging, sun exposure, smoking, environmental stressors, and other factors can all affect your skin in noticeable ways. Sunspots, hyperpigmentation, vascular lesions, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and other problems may prevent you from having the beautiful skin you desire. Intense pulsed light (IPL) offers powerful rejuvenation and can give you even, clear, and youthful skin anywhere on the face or body.
Candidates for IPL have one or more of the following skin concerns:
- Redness or rosacea
- Sun damage
- Sunspots (age spots or liver spots)
- Fine lines
- Irregular skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Hyperpigmentation (including melasma)
- Uneven skin tone
- Vascular lesions (including broken capillaries)
- Sagging, loose skin
Candidates may have these skin concerns anywhere on the body, but they are especially common on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Your IPL treatment will be a quick, in-office procedure with no downtime. The area may be numbed for patient comfort, and patients may watch Netflix during the numbing process. The IPL device will deliver a customized selection of broad-spectrum light waves in intense pulses to the target area. IPL stimulates a repair response and causes the skin to renew itself. Because of the broad spectrum of light used in IPL treatments, a single 30-minute photorejuvenation session can simultaneously treat multiple skin conditions. Every IPL treatment can be adjusted to meet the patient’s individual needs, and the treatments are safe for all skin types and age groups. We offer a variety of IPL packages, some of which include skin care for before and after IPL treatment.
IPL treatments have minimal downtime, and results can be seen after just one treatment. Most patients experience some redness, and pigment sheds from the skin like little coffee grounds. You will immediately see improved coloration and skin tone, and over time, issues such as irregular texture, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation will fade away. Typically, a set of four or five treatment sessions is recommended for optimum results, after which two to four treatments per year can be performed to maintain healthy, vibrant, and youthful skin. Even with just a single treatment, results from IPL can last up to two years. By targeting a variety of skin conditions, IPL treatments can make patients look years younger.
IPL treatments can correct a variety of skin concerns and give you smooth, healthy, and youthful skin. To rejuvenate your appearance with IPL, book your consultation with our nurse and receive your customized treatment plan. Call (619) 437-1388 or contact us online today.
