Are you having trouble with sun spots, age spots or even acne affecting your skin or making you look older? Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy might be for you! This system allows multiple light waves to be released into the second layer of skin, which destroys any imperfections you may have on your skin while being minimally invasive.
There are many advantages to IPL treatment, including great-looking skin, compared to more traditional skin treatment options. IPL is similar to laser therapy in that treatment may take a couple of sessions to complete fully. However, IPL uses multiple light waves, and laser therapy only uses a single wave. Therefore, IPL can treat a larger area of skin in a shorter period of time, meaning less time in the doctor’s office for you.
Once you are in the doctor’s office prepared for treatment, you will be treated by a small handheld device that delivers light waves into the affected skin. This process may produce slight tingling sensations but nothing extreme. After treatment, your skin may feel a bit sunburned after treatment, but this is perfectly normal. You should notice results within a couple of weeks, depending on how many sessions your professional decided that you needed for your issue.
