What is IPL Therapy?

IPL Therapy, also known as photorejuvenation or photofacial, is a non-invasive skincare procedure that uses broad-spectrum light to target a variety of skin concerns. This versatile treatment is highly effective in reducing the appearance of sun damage, age spots, freckles, redness, and acne scars, while also stimulating collagen production for a more youthful complexion.

Benefits of IPL Therapy:
  • Reduces Pigmentation: IPL Therapy targets excess melanin in the skin, reducing the appearance of brown spots, sunspots, freckles, and other pigmentation irregularities, resulting in a more even skin tone.
  • Evens Skin Texture: By stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover, IPL Therapy helps improve skin texture, minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
  • Reduces Redness: IPL Therapy effectively targets and reduces redness associated with rosacea, broken capillaries, and facial flushing, leaving your skin looking calm and refreshed.
  • Minimally Invasive: IPL Therapy is a gentle and non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
  • Customizable Treatment: IPL Therapy can be customized to address your specific skin concerns and goals, making it suitable for a wide range of skin types and conditions.
What to Expect During Your IPL Treatment:

During your IPL Treatment session, one of our highly experienced medical providers will customize the treatment to target your specific skin concerns. A cooling gel will be applied to your skin to enhance comfort and protect the epidermis. The IPL device will then emit pulses of light, which are absorbed by the targeted areas of pigmentation or blood vessels. You may experience a mild stinging sensation or warmth during the treatment, but it is generally well-tolerated. Depending on the size and severity of the area being treated, your session may last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.

Aftercare and Maintenance:

After your IPL Treatment, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen daily and avoiding prolonged sun exposure. You may experience some mild redness or swelling immediately after the treatment, but this should subside within a few hours to a few days. For optimal results, we recommend scheduling multiple treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart, as determined by your skincare provider.
