Your Solution For Smoother, Younger-Looking Skin with Intense Pulse Light Therapy.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy helps patients by addressing a variety of skin concerns using targeted light pulses. How does IPL work?

  • Broad Spectrum Light: Unlike lasers that emit a single wavelength of light, IPL devices use a broad spectrum of light pulses. This allows dermatologists to target various chromophores (light-absorbing molecules) in the skin.
  • Targeting Specific Concerns: Depending on the chosen filters and settings, IPL can target different chromophores:
  • Melanin: IPL can target melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. This helps reduce the appearance of sun damage like age spots, freckles, and uneven pigmentation.
  • Hemoglobin: Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells. IPL can target visible blood vessels, reducing the appearance of redness caused by rosacea or broken capillaries.
  • Hair Follicle: The melanin in hair follicles can also be targeted by IPL, leading to the reduction of unwanted hair growth.
  • Non-ablative Treatment: Unlike lasers that can ablate (vaporize) tissue, IPL is a non-ablative treatment. It heats the targeted chromophores, damaging them without harming the surrounding skin. This minimizes downtime and discomfort compared to some other procedures.

Overall Benefits of IPL:

  • Improved Skin Tone and Texture: IPL can address sun damage, age spots, and uneven pigmentation, resulting in a brighter and more even complexion.
  • Reduced Signs of Aging: IPL can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, particularly those caused by sun damage.
  • Minimized Vascular Issues: IPL can reduce the appearance of redness caused by rosacea and broken capillaries.
  • Unwanted Hair Removal: IPL is a popular option for semi-permanent hair reduction on various body areas.
