Intense pulsed light, also known as IPL, is a cosmetic skin treatment that can be utilized to reduce the visible signs of aging. The IPL provides different wavelengths intended to treat a variety of skin concerns including:
*Facial Redness, Telangiectasia, Angioma, Rosacea, Inflammatory Acne
*Brown Discoloration such as Sun Spots (Solar Lentigo) on the face, décolletage, arms and hands
*Poikiloderma (a red brown discoloration typical in areas of chronic sun damage)
*Overall improvement of skin texture and appearance
*Treatment of Red Birthmarks
*Some Spider Veins
The recovery following IPL treatment depends upon what is being treated, but may include some temporary increase in redness in the treated area, temporary darkening of brown spots and possible small and temporary bruising. We typically recommend 2-3 treatments to achieve optimal results; however, it is important to discuss expectations based upon what is being treated with your provider at the time of your consultation.
