IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses light therapy to improve the appearance of the skin. It is often used to treat skin concerns such as sun damage, age spots, rosacea, and uneven skin tone.
IPL treatment can be used to treat a range of skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, acne, redness, and fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does IPL Work?
IPL treatment works by delivering high-intensity pulses of light to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the skin's pigmentation, which causes the targeted area to heat up and break down. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response, which helps to improve the texture and appearance of the skin.
What Is The IPL Treatment Like?
During an IPL treatment session, a healthcare professional will apply a cooling gel to the skin before using a handheld device to deliver pulses of light to the targeted area. Patients may feel a mild sensation of heat or a snapping feeling during the treatment, but it is generally not painful.
What Is The Recovery Time for IPL?
Recovery time from IPL treatment is typically minimal. Patients may experience some redness or swelling at the treatment site, but this usually subsides within a few hours to a day. It is important to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect the skin during the healing process. Results from IPL treatment are usually noticeable within a few weeks, and multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results.
