Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy works similarly to laser therapy. The main difference is that instead of a laser delivering one wavelength of light energy, IPL has multiple wavelengths. IPL treatments can also serve a larger skin area in a shorter time.
There are a variety of ways that one can use IPL treatment. One of the most common ways is hair removal. IPL uses light energy to target and removes pigmented or damaged hair follicles. Here are some more ways that IPL Treatments can help you.
IPL for Hyperpigmentation
IPL therapy can help eliminate hyperpigmentation without affecting surrounding areas. This treatment is a bit similar to laser resurfacing. Specific tissue tones absorb IPL energy, and only the cells responsible for the hyperpigmentation are affected. You can opt for this procedure on your face, neck, chest, hands, and more.
IPL for Sun Spots
IPL Treatments can also help reduce sun spots. IPL energy goes down into the skin’s deepest layers and forces the targeted cells and tissues to break down. Once these cells are damaged, the body eliminates them over time and regenerates new cells. This process creates smooth, even-toned skin.
Other Benefits of IPL Treatments
IPL treatments will help your skin generate more natural collagen. Collagen is an essential protein in the skin and nails to help maintain a youthful glow.
IPL helps diminish visible spider veins and capillaries on your face. The intense pulse light is attracted to the red blood cells and will eliminate them.
IPL can prevent premature skin aging. Studies have shown that getting 2-3 photo facials per year can positively alter the genes of dermal cells.
IPL treatments take 20 minutes or less and require minimal downtime; you can return to your everyday life immediately!
