Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a patented fluorescent pulsed-light technology that effectively treats facial redness, flushing, and brown spots or pigment problems on your face, neck, and chest. By carefully delivering a series of gentle light pulses to the skin, IPL treatments restore a more youthful appearance with no downtime, little discomfort, and minimal risk.
Number of Treatments
Five IPL treatments are recommended for a marked result.
Face, neck, chest
15 minutes to 1 hour
2 to 3 hours
Potential Side Effects
During an IPL treatment, some patients experience mild discomfort that can be addressed with a topical anesthetic. Following each treatment, the skin may appear flushed, tiny vessels may be more visible, and brown spots may appear darker. Some patients report minor swelling following IPL treatments. These effects typically decrease in a few hours.
You will experience smoother skin, smaller pores, and fading of sun spots as well as a gradual decrease in the overall redness and flushing in your face, neck, or chest. If you suffer from rosacea, a common vascular problem, IPL treatments can improve your symptoms significantly.
