Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

It’s time to heal your skin and get rid of stubborn sun damage with intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). Improve the overall appearance of your skin with our advanced photo facial therapy and get your skin glowing again.

What is intense pulsed light therapy?

Intense pulsed light therapy is also known as “photo facials.” This is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment procedure. Across the globe, aestheticians use IPL treatments to improve the color and texture of the skin. It is also effective to undo some visible sun damage (photoaging). Apart from treating signs of aging, it helps to reduce the appearance of scars, lightens darker patches, and conceals the appearance of spider veins.

It functions similarly to laser therapy. However, laser treatment includes a single wavelength of light energy. IPL uses multiple wavelengths. IPL can treat a larger area of the skin in a shorter period.

Intense pulsed light therapy is a highly effective way to improve dull skin and make it more radiant.

How does intense pulsed light therapy work?

The procedure uses light energy to treat a certain color (chromophores) in your skin. Due to a certain amount of heat, your body can get rid of unwanted cells. Unlike the laser treatment, IPL uses more than one wavelength of pulsed light.
Most IPL devices come with filters to refine the energy output. This ensures better penetration without excessive energy levels. Aestheticians can target specific chromophores and treat the skin concern.

Who can undergo intense pulsed light therapy?

This is a non-ablative resurfacing technique that targets the lower layer of the skin without affecting the epidermis. There is zero to minimal downtime. IPL treats a wide range of skin issues, such as:

  •  Birthmarks
  •  Acne scars
  •  Redness
  •  Hyperpigmentation
  •  Spider veins
  •  Melasma
  •  Wrinkles
  •  Sun damage
  •  Stretch marks
  •  Unwanted hair
  •  Tattoo removal

What can you expect from intense pulsed light therapy?

Intense pulsed light therapy is safe for most people and offers outstanding results. However, we do not recommend it for pregnant women and people who are taking medicines like blood thinners. Some other factors make people unsuitable for IPL treatment, such as:

  •  Undergoing acne treatment
  •  Suffering from any skin resurfacing disorder
  •  Susceptible to Keloids
  •  Have severe scarring and sunburn

However, people suffering from acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, stretch marks, or hair & tattoo removal can undergo IPL treatment.
You must avoid using any deodorant or perfume in the treatment area. after the treatment, one must avoid chemical peels, collagen injections, waxing, and sunbathing for two weeks.
