What is a Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment?

Updated: Jul 30, 2020

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology is a therapy that can be beneficial in the management of a range of skin disorders. IPL It’s a type of light therapy that effectively destroys the pigment-producing cells beneath the skin surface. You can use IPL to minimize or remove age spots, Sun damage, Freckles, Broken blood vessels on your face, rosacea & improve skin complexion and tone, and enhance the natural glow on the face.

This effect is produced when the light energy gets converted into heat energy and destroys the hyperactive cells in the skin responsible for producing a pigment called melanin in excessive amounts.

Once these cells are destroyed, the skin regains its ability to produce melanin in normal amounts. This helps to reduce the hyper-pigmented patches on the skin and restores a natural skin tone and complexion.

During your IPL treatment it’s common for patients to feel a slight tingling sensation. There is mild redness after the procedure and a feeling similar to a sunburn and this feeling should subside in a short amount of time.

This non-invasive laser treatment has been around for more than a decade and is particularly popular for its proven and rapid results that promote new collagen production. In comparison to other laser treatments, IPL treatments are non-aggressive and suitable for all skin types. Although IPL Photofacials are non-invasive, the level of discomfort really depends on the patient's pain threshold. Topical numbing cream is often applied 1 hour before your treatment to help manage any discomfort.
