IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
IPL is a form of facial rejuvenation procedure for individuals looking to undo damage caused by sun exposure, acne, Rosacea, smoking, and the aging process. The IPL which stands for intensed pulsed light, is non-ablative, which means that it does not damage the surface of the skin. The procedure is an ideal treatment for most men and women who experience redness, blotchiness or uneven skin tones as a result of acne, Rosacea, sun damage, hyper pigmentation or aging. It has been helpful in smoothing out discoloration caused by smoking, hormonal changes, drinking and redness caused by facial capillaries or tiny blood vessels located just beneath the skins surface. Along with removing age spots, freckles, and melasma, it may tighten skin and improve fine lines. Patients who receive the IPL procedure may notice improved texture of skin, decreased redness, more even color and a more youthful skin tone. IPL also helps with big pores.
The IPL treatment does not damage the epidermis and requires no recovery time. The intense light is delivered to the dermis (deeper part of the skin) and leaves the epidermis (superficial part of the skin) untouched. The treatment is painless and quick. the treatment can be done during your lunch break and after that you can go back to work without any redness
