What are the benefits of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments?

Would you like to beautify your skin and restore its youthful glow? IPL may be the solution for you. IPL is a versatile treatment that rejuvenates the skin, and treats a range of skin troubles. But what are the benefits of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments.

What is IPL treatment?

IPL is a skin treatment that uses specific wavelengths of concentrated light to improve the appearance of the skin. IPL targets melanin, and this makes it an ideal treatment for skin discoloration issues such as sun damage, age spots, freckles, and rosacea. It also treats wrinkles, fine lines, and dullness (learn more).

What are the benefits of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments

  1. Reduces signs of aging
    IPL stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The decline in natural collagen and elastin over time hinders the skin’s ability to repair itself, so the effects of aging set in, causing wrinkles and fine lines to develop. An increase in collagen and elastin makes the skin firmer, smoother, and reduces signs of aging.
  2. Reduces spider veins
    IPL can also reduce or eliminate spider veins, which are small broken blood vessels that are visible through the skin. IPL heats and damages the wall of the veins, causing them to collapse and eventually disappear.
  3. Reduces Acne
    The short pulses of light target and kill the acne-causing bacteria. This process also reduces inflammation and prevents future breakouts.

IPL is a comfortable, minimally invasive treatment that requires little to no downtime. Patients generally need a series of treatments to achieve the optimal benefits of IPL.
