Intense Pulsed Light (I.P.L.)


IPL Facial Treatment in South Florida

What is Intense Pulsated Light (I.P.L.) Treatment?

Intense pulsed light, also known as I.P.L., is a safe and effective procedure powered by intense pulsed light. With an IPL facial treatment, physicians are able to achieve amazing results for improving facial wrinkles, rosacea, brown spots, dilated veins, unsightly leg veins, and aging skin.

How is IPL Treatment Different from Other Laser Treatments?

Intense pulsed light therapy can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. This device has the capability of interchanging the head piece of the laser depending on the skin condition in order to achieve the desired result. It is typically used on the face, neck, and/or chest to treat facial erythema (redness) and flushing, and to remedy damage caused by sun overexposure. IPL can also help eliminate the redness and flushing of rosacea.

What can patients expect following IPL treatment?

You will first see a gradual decrease in redness. The treated skin will feel softer and appear more uniform in tone. Fine lines and wrinkles will also improve, along with fading of pigmentation and age spots and a reduction in pore size. Rosacea sufferers will see a marked reduction in breakouts and in some cases may be able to decrease or discontinue their medication.

There is little to no downtime following facial treatment with intense pulsed light (IPL laser), though redness may be seen for a few hours to a few days. Patients may also experience mild flaking as the skin exfoliates for one to two days. Full recovery is typically five days. Treatment only takes 15 to 30 minutes and isn't painful.

How many IPL treatments are needed?

Results improve with each facial treatment and improve gradually over time. Most people require about 5 treatments. Those with more complicated conditions may need more.
