IPL, also known as photo-rejuvenation, is a straightforward, non-invasive procedure that is known to solve an array of skin conditions such as: blemishes, wrinkles, signs of aging, discoloration, shallow scarring and skin texture. The IPL itself is actually a powerful light source that has the ability to penetrate the skin by filtering wavelengths of light, thus gently injuring the deeper layers and sparing the outer layers. During the procedure, intense light is used from the IPL device that focuses specifically on the areas to be treated. The light itself helps trigger the production of collagen, which aids in healing fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, spots and discoloration.
It is important to note that contrary to lasers, IPL differs as it directs a broad spectrum high intensity light pulse compared to the more invasive, specific wavelength of a laser. In addition, it also operates on a wider range of wavelengths which means that it can treat several skin conditions with just one machine.
This treatment is ideal for patients who are looking for a non-invasive, pain-free solution to treat the skin conditions that have been weighing on them and bringing down their confidence and psychology.
