Skincare specialists often use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to addresses a variety of benign skin conditions such as red and brown blotches, rosacea, broken blood vessels, acne and other blemishes. There are a lot of advantages to IPL; it is safe and noninvasive, and can easily be tailored to meet different people’s particular needs. Below we delve a little deeper into what IPL is all about and why it may be right for you.

What Conditions Can IPL Photo Rejuvenation Treat?

IPL technology evens out the skin tone and texture, creating smoother looking skin, which helps to reverse the signs of aging. After a series of treatments, you will see a reduction of unwanted pigmentation and broken capillaries. The same IPL treatment can also be used effectively to treat many arts of the body, notably the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. IPL also can help with acne issues.

How Is The IPL Photo Rejuvenation Treatment Performed?

IPL is noninvasive, but you may not have received a treatment like it before, so it’s good to know what to expect. First, the area of skin to be treated is cleansed. Your eyes are covered with protective glasses or eye shields and a thin layer of cold ultrasound gel is applied to the skin. The chilled sapphire crystal tip of the hand piece is placed onto the skin and the light is pulsed. The chilled tip eliminates the need for topical anesthetic.
