Intense Pulse Light
IPL (also known as Intense Pulse Light) technology can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance. As we age, we pay attention to the appearance of our skin is even more. IPL can remove age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo-rejuvenation. IPL can be used on the face and body and will result with a more even skin tone.
How Does IPL Work?
IPL works by emitting pulse light energy. This energy is absorbed by targets in the skin, either blood or vascular lesions and then this light energy damages either the capillaries or melanin. The injured tissue is removed through the body’s natural healing process and results in a more even and youthful appearance.
How long is the downtime post procedure?
There is minimal downtime when you come in to our office for an IPL procedure. In fact, many patients return to work the same day. Though you may not want to apply makeup immediately following the procedure, You may do so within a couple of hours if you desire.
This is a great procedure for those with a busy schedule.

How Many Treatments Will I need?
The number of treatments depends on your skin type, the location and condition of the area and your desired results. Most patients need a series of three to six (3 to 6) treatments. We recommend spacing the treatments approximately four (4) weeks apart.
Does IPL hurt?
During the procedure, many patients agree it’s accurately described as similar to the “snapping of a rubber band against your skin.” It’s a little snap – and the sensation does not last long.
