Intense Pulse Light

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

This incredible new therapy is based on emitting high intensity pulses of light (not lasers) to penetrate the skin and rid you of various complaints.

Why choose Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?

It is phenomenal new mini-procedure capable of diminishing or fully ridding one of age/liver spots, fine wrinkles (rhytids), facial flushing, redness, broken capillaries, telangiectasia (Teel-ann-ject-AZE-yah) which are purple or blue veins on the face, hemangiomas (sacs of red, purple or blue blood vessels resembling a blister, aka strawberry hemangiomas), freckles, minor sun damage, port wine stains, tattoos, varicose veins, spider veins, flat birth marks, hypo-pigmentation and even hair removal!

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy gives you the benefits of a medium depth laser or chemical peel or other type of resurfacing/rejuvenation procedure without the blisters, burns and long recovery time. Not only that, it is the only proven therapy to help with redness (rosacea, flushing, etc)! And to boot, many patients report a reduction in pore size, smoother skin, and less wrinkles!

How Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Is Performed

Your technician or doctor will ascertain your comfort and if desired a topical anesthetic may be applied. After the treatment area is numb a cold, soothing gel will be applied and a glass prism (pyramid) will then be placed over the gel and treatment area. An intense flash of light, or pulse, is flashed through the prism where it is directed at the treatment area to rid you of your complaints. This initial treatment may not be as aggressive as your following treatments so as not to possibly damage the skin and to determine your skin's tolerance for further intensive treatment. Treatments are usually performed every 3 to 4 weeks.

The Road To Recovery

Since there is no real downtime you may resume your normal activities after a Pulsed Light treatment. However you must protect your treatment area from UV light, be it natural sunlight or tanning beds. You may be slightly pink or red directly after your treatment as well as have mild swelling. This should subside in a few days and if not you should inform your doctor/technicia

Risks & Complications of Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

Although rare, blistering or slight bleeding is possible as is hypo- or hyper-pigmentation (lightened or darkened areas of skin). If pigmentation problems occur, it may be anywhere from 3 to 12 months before normal skin tome returns. This is especially so with hypo-pigmentation (lack of color). Be aware that some patients may experience permanent skin pigmentation changes. Scarring is possible although it too is a rare occurrence.
