What does IPL treat?
At different frequencies, IPL treatments can help treat sun spots and freckles to the face, hair removal, and also facial rejuvenation.
How IPL Works
IPL works by pulsing the skin with intense light, similar to a laser, but with lower intensity and with a wider range of wavelengths.
IPL works by selective photothermolysis, similar to lasers. The pulsed light energy is absorbed by targets in the skin such freckles, sun spots, and hair follicles.
IPL Procedure and Results
During IPL treatment, your skin is exposed to an intense light. The length of treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated, but typically takes 15-30 minutes. Most people do not experience discomfort. A topical anesthetic is available if desired, but most do not need it.
