Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL is a non-invasive treatment that can address many skin concerns associated with aging like uneven skin tone and brown spots, giving you with smoother skin, a more even skin tone and a brighter outlook on life.
WHAT IS IPL?
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light is a safe, popular, and effective laser technology developed to reverse signs of aging such as age and liver spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. It works by focusing a broad spectrum of light to pigment beneath the surface of the skin. The pigment absorbs the IPL energy, is destroyed, and slowly rises to the surface and sloughs off, leaving you with brighter, clearer and more even skin tone. IPL also stimulates collagen by penetrating and eliminating the old structures beneath the skin, forcing the body to produce new collagen.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY IPL TREATMENT?
IPL is not painful, though you may experience some discomfort. You will feel heat and a sensation often described as a rubber band snapping. When the session is complete, the treated area may appear darker in color for a time, but this is temporary.
HOW MUCH DOES IPL COST?
Pricing for IPL is determined by the number of treatments required and area to be treated. In order to give you a precise cost, we will need to discuss your treatment goals and evaluate the area you want to address. As a general rule, the starting price is $100, but we will give you an exact quote during your consultation.
WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE FOR IPL?
After treatment your skin may look and feel like a sunburn and this can last for several days. The dark spots on your skin will gradually fade and you will see the final results in about three weeks. If several treatments are recommended, they can be done approximately one month apart.
