Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a skin care trend that’s skyrocketing in popularity. This treatment is quick, virtually painless, and delivers impressive results, all without damaging the surface of your skin. IPL treatments target short blasts of high-intensity light into your skin.
That light penetrates past the skin’s surface, into the layer just beneath, to target problem areas. It can break up melanin that causes age spots, and blood vessels that cause broken capillaries and spider veins. In addition to minimizing the appearance of brown spots and spider veins, IPL can also be used to treat:
This treatment targets your skin’s issues and promotes the creation of new, healthy skin. The light breaks down any components that are causing skin imperfections so your body can process and remove them.
What’s more, IPL treatments stimulate the production of collagen, an essential protein in your skin that provides structure and elasticity. New collagen helps your skin look plumper, smoother, and younger.
IPL is most effective when delivered over a series of treatments (usually 3-6) spaced about four weeks apart.
Absolutely. Acne is caused by a bacteria called propionibacterium. The light and heat from IPL destroy that bacteria while simultaneously shrinking your sebaceous glands. As a result, your skin can stay clear and healthy.
In order to get the best results, Gainesville Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends a series of eight treatments. Unlike other IPL treatments, these should be performed twice a week for four weeks to maintain clean, clear, and healthy skin.
No! The reason why IPL treatments are so popular is because they’re virtually painless and require little to no recovery time. In order to maintain your results, you can repeat your IPL treatments as needed.
