What are the Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments?

If you’re struggling with skin issues such as dark spots, fine lines, and uneven skin tone, it’s possible to rejuvenate your face with an IPL facial.  IPL also referred to as photofacial or photorejuvenation is a gentle treatment that can restore your skin’s radiance.  But what are the benefits of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments?  

What Is IPL Therapy?

IPL is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses a broad spectrum of light to improve the overall appearance of the skin.   IPL treats photoaging as well as vascular and pigmented lesions.  It typically takes 2-3 treatment spaced 4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.  Most patients notice visible improvements in the appearance of their skin within a few days of treatment.   

Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments

  • Non-invasive: IPL is a completely non-invasive, non-surgical treatment so there’s no need for anesthesia, incisions, or stitches.  
  • Repairs Sun Damage: Overexposure to the UV rays of the sun can damage the skin and lead to skin issues such as uneven pigmentation, dark patches, and sunspots.  IPL corrects sun damage by breaking down and removing excess pigment, leaving the skin clearer and brighter.  
  • Quick And Comfortable: IPL treatments last anywhere from 30-45 minutes, and are virtually painless.  
  • It’s Versatile: IPL works on different skin types and skin tones and targets a variety of skin concerns.  It can be used to address wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea,  facial redness, and more.
  • Minimal Downtime:  Most patients experience mild redness with IPL and the skin may be sensitive for a few days, but they can return to work immediately after treatment.
