Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

What is IPL used for?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatments are most commonly used for:

Lightening and removing sun spots, age spots and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body;
Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels and "broken" blood vessels on the face, neck and chest; and
It also has a lesser effect of improving skin texture through collagen stimulation and improves pore size minimally by temporarily reducing oiliness.

How does IPL work?

Intense Pulsed Light treats skin imperfections including age spots, sunspots, and broken capillaries on the face, chest and hands. Light wavelengths penetrate the skin to remove unwanted capillaries and reduce pigmentation, evening-out skin tone and stimulating collagen production in the skin's deeper layer. 

IPL, when done properly, almost always consists of a series of 3-5 treatments, usually one every 2-4 weeks. The benefits of IPL treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk.

How is the treatment carried out?

Following a consultation with your medical professional, and a test spot to ensure your compatibility with the treatment, our concierge team will schedule your IPL treatment.

During the IPL treatment, your medical professional will put special glasses or eyepads over your eyes to protect them. A cool gel is then placed on the skin being treated. The smooth glass surface of the handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light flash. You may feel a very slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band.
