How Does IPL Work?

IPL technology delivers photo rejuvenation and energy at different wavelengths to address numerous aesthetic and dermatology needs. The depth of penetration varies according to the wavelength; the longer the wavelength, the greater the penetration depth.

IPL Treatments

IPL is an effective treatment for acne. With ongoing treatment, patients will notice an improvement in active acne, possible reduction in future breakouts, and overall healthier-looking skin.

Pigmentation & Sun Damage
IPL is a popular choice used to treat photoaged skin, targeting various pigment and skin concerns such as freckles, age spots, melasma, vascular lesions, and general dullness with the appropriate wavelength, leaving you with improved skin tone.

Hair Removal
IPL treatment can also safely and effectively remove hair from the face, neck, chin, and body by targeting melanin found in the hair follicle. The melanin absorbs the light and transforms it into thermal energy, destroying the hair follicle and preventing future growth for long-term results.

Skin Rejuvenation
A non-invasive rejuvenation treatment aimed to improve the look of fine wrinkles and tighten the skin. Improvement in dermal volume and skin texture is achieved by heating collagen fibers and stimulating fibroblasts over a series of IPL treatments.

Vascular Lesions
IPL treatments are effective for removing superficial blood vessels, capillaries, spider veins and other vascular conditions (such as Rosacea) that are a common concern on the face and body. Rosacea’s permanent and temporary redness or erythema, blood vessels, papules and pustules, flushing, burning, tingling, stinging, and itching all respond to IPL treatment.

These treatments are quick, with little to no downtime. Most patients will see an improvement after one treatment, but a series of treatments may be required for some skin conditions.

IPL is a safe and efficient solution for your vascular needs.
