What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology uses a broad spectrum of light to delicately target and reduce melanin, excess pigment in the skin. This broad spectrum of light is quickly emitted from a hand piece in short pulses onto the surface of skin. IPL therapy is non-invasive and should not harm the surface of the skin at all. While penetrating deep into the epidermis, IPL energy precisely treats a variety of skin conditions, such as vascular & pigmented lesions, capillaries, photo aging, and more.

IPL Phototherapy for Pigmented & Vascular Lesions, Capillaries, Rosacea, and Aging Skin

Areas of pigment are gently heated by short pulses of light energy, being absorbed by the blood in vascular lesions or capillaries, or by the melanin in pigment. The temperature in these highly-concentrated areas of melanin or vascular pigment is raised, shattering the cells that contain excess pigment. The body then begins it's natural process of repairing the injured cells, eliminating the pigment, and replacing this area with new, younger skin cells.*

Many Conditions Are Treated with IPL Phototherapy

IPL Phototherapy Treatment

IPL treatments are quick and very effective, with minimal pain and no downtime.* Depending on the pigmented area, treatments can take only 15-20 minutes. Some patients report a stinging pain similar to a rubber band snap, while other patients experience no pain. After the treatment is finished, there is no pain or downtime.

We will customize the IPL treatment to skin type and condition, providing the most safe and effective treatment possible.

For some pigment such as dark lesions, a series of IPL treatments may be recommended, while other pigmented areas can be treated with just one treatment. Many patients see an improvement the same day as treatment, with the pigmented area fading or disappearing completely.*
