Who is a good candidate for IPL?

Ideal for fair to light skin, non-melasma type pigment.

How does skin rejuvenation work?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo rejuvenation skin treatment applies a broad spectrum of light to the skin. The light penetrates into the skin, targeting pigment and vascular imperfections. The multiple wavelengths of light reach different levels of the skin to lighten hyperpigmentation, shrink blood vessels and stimulate collagen.

When can I expect to see results?

Gradual and cumulative improvement of skin tone is typically achieved between 5-6 treatment sessions. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition.

Does it hurt?

There may be some mild discomfort during treatment, however most people tolerate the treatment just fine.You may feel a sense of warmth or a slight stinging sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.Cooling of the skin’s surface helps ensure patient comfort and additional safety during treatment.

Is there any downtime?

This is a no downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects are reddening of the skin and mild swelling.Spots become darker before they either flake off or fade.

Come in for a consultation

A consultation is required to evaluate your pigment. If any spots appear to be potentially suspicious, laser treatment will not be performed and we will recommend that you see a dermatologist.
