Intense Pulse Light, or IPL, is commonly used to rejuvenate the skin and minimize skin discolorations. Are you worried about sun spots, brown spots, freckles or blotchiness? Are you concerned about redness, rosacea and broken blood vessels? IPL (also known as photofacial or fotofacial) is a solution.
Some patients are unable to hide skin imperfections with makeup and need the lightening effect of IPL. The IPL laser emits light waves that target hemoglobin (red blood cells) and melanin (skin pigment), which are then absorbed by the body and made less visible.
IPL works on many areas of the body, but is most popular in treating the face, neck, chest and hands. Many seek solutions to other problems, such as flushing, large pores and excessive oiliness. IPL also improves skin texture through collegen stimulation.
During a consultation, Melissa Gibbens will determine if IPL is right for you. Patients generally undergo three to five treatments, usually one every three to six weeks. There is minimal discomfort and minimal risk with the procedure.
