IPL stand for Intense Pulsed Light.  It is a laser treatment for a variety of skin conditions.  Our office offers the “Gold Standard” of IPL because it combines Pulsed Dye Laser with IPL.  This specialized laser light treatment is safe, effective, and provides consistent results.  

How IPL Works

The energy emitted from the IPL laser is absorbed in the skin and absorbed by brown and red pigment.  This includes age spots, sunspots, freckles, redness, and rosacea.  These pigment imperfections absorb the light and start breaking down.  Eventually, they darken and flake off the skin.

IPL can treat a multitude of skin conditions including sunspots, age spots, vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, port wine stains, hemangiomas, and rosacea.  IPL can be used just about anywhere on the body such as face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back.

IPL LASER Common Questions

There is no preparation necessary for an IPL treatment.  The face should be washed clean of any skincare products and makeup prior to arrival.  IPL does not require any type of anesthesia.  When small areas are treated, the laser energy strikes the skin and feels like a quick snap of an elastic band. For larger areas, the IN-Motion protocol can be used to maximize patient comfort. The patient experiences a warmth over the treated area. There is no downtime after an IPL treatment.  Regular use of SPF sunscreen is encouraged after the procedure.

In most cases a series of IPL treatments will be necessary.  Treatments can be spaced about 4 weeks apart and vary in length of time depending on the size of the area.  Small spots will take just a few minutes. Larger areas, like the chest, can take up to 30 minutes.

Most patients see results quickly. Blood vessels and red areas blanch almost immediately and start breaking down. Pigmented lesions will darken over time and flake off.
