IPL Intense Pulse Light
Intense Pulse Light Treats Brown Spots & Hyperpigmentation
IPL or Intense Pulse Light technology can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance. IPL removes age spots, most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries. This is done through a process called photo-rejuvenation. Intense Pulse Light can be used on the face and body and will result in a more even skin tone. This treatment is also known as BBL or Broadband Light Treatment. If you feel your skin appears ‘ruddy’ this is the procedure for you. You will see dramatic improvement after your first treatment!
IPL works by emitting pulse light energy. This energy is absorbed by targets in the skin like blood or vascular lesions. This light energy damages either the capillaries or melanin. The injured tissue from Intense Pulse Light treatments is removed through the body’s natural healing process and results in a more even and youthful appearance.

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 treatments. We recommend spacing your treatments approximately four weeks apart.
How Long is the Downtime and Does It Hurt?
There is minimal downtime when you come in to our office for this procedure. In fact many patients return to work the same day. You will want to wait a couple of hours to reapply makeup after your treatment. Your skin may appear pink like you have a mild sunburn or windburn. You should use sunscreen on the treated area if you are going to have any sun exposure. During the procedure itself many patients describe the sensation of each pulse as similar to the snapping of a rubber band against your skin. It is mild and the sensation does not last after the light pulse.

"Before Voluma everyone was always asking me if I was sick or sad – and that’s enough to make you sad. After Voluma I get “Hello” and “How are you”, no more sick and sad, just a lot of smiles. I never smiled before Voluma, now I can’t stop smiling."

"I'll start by saying I'm a 39 year old male and slowly over time I have lost a lot of volume in my face. I'm very happy with the results and Rachel is top notch. Very kind and personable and has treated me with honesty and care. Also very recently I have had flare ups of cystic acne and have been seeing Lisa Combs for that. The first time I saw her I had a chemical peel and a couple weeks ago I had an IPL Acne treatment. My face has not been this clear in a long time. "
