Intense pulsed light (IPL) photorejuvenation is a gentle skin treatment that erases skin imperfections, such as dark spots or acne. It works by stimulating collagen and elastin fiber production with intense pulsed light to the desired area of treatment. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin in a controlled manner. The body's natural healing process then removes the treated imperfection, while collagen and elastin fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
IPL photorejuvenation is a great eraser for surface irregularities, including:
Brown or dark spots from sun damage
While many patients are skeptical about the rejuvenation benefits of an IPL treatment, it has become one of the most popular and successful treatments when it comes to treating your skin!
The full IPL treatment requires minimal downtime. A trained technician will apply the equipment to the target area, which cools the skin before and after each light pulse, so the skin is not broken and you'll experience minimal to no discomfort during your treatment along with zero required recovery time.
Most patients require 3-5 sessions for optimal benefit spaced at 4-6 week intervals. Gradual improvements in tone and texture may be seen in as little as 2-3 weeks after the first session, and benefits of collagen products start appearing after 3 months.
