IPL Laser Treatment
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
Laser technology is extremely valuable in addressing skin issues. Our IPL laser treatment can smooth skin, remove freckles and age spots, calm redness and acne, remove spider veins, and eliminate other imperfections.
The intense pulsed light (IPL) draws out pigment producing cells, pulling them to the surface of the skin, where they ultimately flake off, leaving clear, radiant skin behind. IPL can be used on the face, but it’s not limited to there. It also works for the rest of the body—neck, chest, shoulders, arms and legs.
Is an IPL Laser Treatment Right For You?
IPL can be a good choice if you want to smooth out variations in skin color or complexion and eliminate spots or small veins. A skin evaluation is recommended, because tanned skin or darker tones may be overly affected. Our free consultation allows us to walk through the procedure with you, evaluate your skin, and determine if this is the right approach for you.
What Should I Expect With The IPL Laser Treatment?
First, your skin in the treated area is cleaned thoroughly so dead skin, makeup, or other impurities don’t blunt the value of the light. Then a cooling gel is applied. The laser is moved over the treatment area, usually in a pattern. You may feel a little tingling or discomfort, but most people have no trouble tolerating thins. Since the light is bright, you may need to wear eye protection. Treatment takes about 45 minutes.
Depending on the issues being address, there may be a need for more than one treatment.
It takes a little time to see results with this treatment. The pigmented skin works its way to the surface and falls off, which beings after a few days. Optimum results usually occur about three months after the last treatment. After treatment, you’ll need sun protection to prevent recurrence.
