REDUCE SIGNS OF AGING OR REMOVE UNWANTED HAIR
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) is very similar to laser treatments in that it uses light energy as a cosmetic skin treatment. Unlike lasers, however, IPL releases many different wavelengths of light to stimulate or treat various issues. This non-invasive and non-ablative treatment can aid in reducing the signs of aging as well as in the removal of unwanted hair. Other uses include reducing the appearance of scars, lightening darker patches of skin, and improving the appearance of spider veins.
What skin conditions does IPL treat?
Some of the most common issues that can be treated and corrected through the use of intense pulsed light include:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Redness/flushed appearance
- Sun damage/sun spots
- Hyperpigmentation, including liver or age spots and freckles
- Spider veins
- Stretch marks
- Sun-damaged skin
- Signs of aging, wrinkles
IPL is also often used to remove unwanted hair or tattoos.
