When You Want Results – IPL Our IPL photorejuvenation treatments are a non–invasive alternative for instantly brightening the skin while addressing a variety of skin conditions on the chest, face, hands and neck, including:
Red or ruddy skin*
How Does It Work? The IPL device emits a range of lightwaves that target either the red blood cells in the blood vessels (hemoglobin) or at the brown pigment in freckles and age spots (melanin).* The light beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by either hemoglobin or melanin which damages the blood vessel wall or shatters the melanin pigments and are absorbed by the body, which in turn makes them fade or appear less visible.*
IPL photorejuvenation typically requires multiple treatments for best results, depending on each patient’s unique needs.* The benefits of this non-invasive treatment is achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk.*
How long does it take for IPL Photorejuvenation treatments to work? Some improvement may be observed with each treatment, but it’s common for the body’s response to be slightly different after each treatment.* The more severe the sun damage, hyperpigmentation, or skin discoloration is, the more important it is to have multiple treatments in order to see effective results.*
