IPL. It is a non-ablative technique to rejuvenate and improve skin. Recovery is usually quick – redness typically is mild and usually lasts less than a day. Bruising is uncommon. For most patients, a series of five treatments are performed at about 4 week intervals.
IPL Treatments are beneficial in the treatment of the following:
- Pigmentation and uneven skin tone.
- Redness and flushing.
- Rosacea – Treatments reduce the overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries and improve the breakouts of this common chronic facial condition.
- Smooth the skin texture and reduce pore size.
- Sun damage (Photo-aging). Treatments reduce fine wrinkles, freckling and irregular pigmentation.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
IPL Treatments can be used on any part of the skin. They are especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother and fading of sun spots. Many people with rosacea see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.
WHAT ARE TREATMENTS LIKE?
Each treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are treated. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected. Immediately after treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours or few days.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients notice improvement even after the first treatment. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. For most patients, a series of 5 treatments is appropriate. Some patients will benefit from additional treatments.
