IPL – Intense Pulsed Light Therapy in Roswell, GA
Small skin blemishes like broken capillaries, age spots, and uneven tone can add age to your face just as much as wrinkles! With IPL, you can erase these small skin imperfections and turn back the hands of time with no downtime. Forget expensive creams that take months to work (and even then, provide minimal results). IPL helps you get the results you want faster and more efficiently, for bright, even skin that you’ll be proud to show off!
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Intense Pulsed Light. IPL uses light to target and destroys pigmented or damaged skin cells, erasing them from your skin. The intense light breaks down the unwanted skin imperfections with heat, then the body naturally reabsorbs the cells, leaving your skin clearer and younger-looking.
IPL is commonly used to treat:
- Age spots
- Spider veins
- Acne scars
- San damage
- Dark spots caused by hormonal changes
- Other spots and imperfections in the skin
Painless, quick, and effective
IPL treatment is quick, easy, and virtually painless. At your appointment, your provider will use the IPL wand to target the area of your skin that you need to be addressed. You’ll likely feel a slight pinching sensation as the light pulses on your skin. Most patients find this sensation very tolerable, not painful.
The treatment itself only takes a few minutes, and you can return to your regular activities right away! You may notice some redness and sensitivity in the treated area after your treatment, but it will fade away on its own in a few hours.
How many IPL treatments does it take to see results?
Most patients need a series of treatments to achieve the results they want. But every once in a while, only one treatment is all that’s needed!
IPL treatment for rosacea
IPL is a successful and popular treatment for rosacea because it targets the tiny blood vessels that contribute to redness in rosacea patients. Many rosacea patients struggle for years trying different creams and topical ointments trying to reduce redness … to no avail! But light therapy such as IPL is shown to reduce redness by up to 70% in just one to three treatments!
IPL for sun damage
Sun damage, also known as photoaging, shows up on your face, hands, neck, and chest as uneven texture, brown spots, and other skin imperfections. IPL fades dark spots and evens the tone and texture of sun-damaged skin, helping you look years younger. IPL is shown to reduce the appearance of red and brown sun damage spots on the skin by 70%.
Are there any side effects with IPL?
After your IPL treatments, you may experience some symptoms that are very similar to a mild sunburn. These include redness, itching, peeling, and mild swelling. These side effects generally are mild and fade quickly after treatment.
