The power of broadband light is used in an IPL (intense pulsed light) photo facial treatment to enhance the look of brown spots/dark spots, sun spots from sun exposure, rosacea, age spots, and skin texture. The method may also remove hair, restore vision, and relieve dermatological illnesses such as acne. Because it is efficient, inexpensive, and non-invasive, it is a popular treatment.
In a nutshell, IPL uses fast and powerful flashes of light to treat the skin. The light then travels through the skin’s surface and into the subcutaneous layer, where unwanted brown pigment (melanin) is present. Heat transforms this pigment into tiny particles. One option is scabbing that rises to the skin’s surface (naturally sloughing away within a week or so) or removal by the body’s lymphatic system.
Intense Pulsed Light.
IPL improves the appearance of brown spots/dark spots, sun spots from sun exposure, rosacea, age spots, and skin texture. It can also be used for hair removal, photo rejuvenation, and more.
IPL is popular because it is effective, affordable, and non-invasive.
IPL applies quick and strong bursts of light to treat the skin. It destroys the undesired pigment through light energy, which goes beneath the skin to break it down. IPL employs a variety of wavelengths of light, making it not technically a laser.
Some people will notice an improvement after the first session, but we usually recommend three to five sessions at one-month intervals, with maintenance visits twice a year.
