What Is It?
This treatment uses Intense Pulse Light therapy (IPL) to treat rosacea, broken capillaries, age spots, uneven skin tone, large pores, sun damage, brown spots and hyperpigmentation, as well as general signs of aging.
With IPL, light is absorbed into the targeted cells with color (chromophores) within the the skin. The light converts into heat energy, damaging that specific area of the skin. As the skin heals, collagen is stimulated, which ultimately improves the texture and tone of the skin.
During your treatment, a cooling gel will be applied to the area. Most patients report little to no pain.
IPL has little to no downtime, with most patients returning to work immediately after the treatment.
