Skin care and wellness tips to help you look and feel your best.

IPL is available at LaserSkin MedSpa and is a groundbreaking treatment. From age spots and sun damage to rosacea and a general desire for a fresher, more youthful appearance, IPL treatment can address a lot of skin concerns. IPL Treatment 101 will provide all the necessary information about this procedure, and the guide covers it; the benefits, what to expect during the process, and the post-skin care to be given.

Understanding IPL Treatment

What is IPL Treatment?

IPL treatment, which is also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy, uses a broad spectrum of light to target different skin concerns. IPL releases numerous wavelengths as opposed to lasers, which emit only one wavelength, allowing for penetration to the dermis, the skin’s second layer, without affecting the epidermis or top layer of the skin. This activity boosts natural healing by encouraging collagen production and eliminating abnormal pigment cells.

How IPL Works

The IPL technology itself is fascinating. The machine generates short flashes of intensive polychromatic light, able to penetrate the skin several millimeters deep. When filtered, light waves reach a depth required to solve a particular issue effectively. Such an ability allows for the comprehensive treatment of numerous problems, especially considering that IPL, contrary to a common belief, suits any skin type or tone.

The IPL Treatment Experience

What to Expect During Your IPL Session

When you visit LaserSkin MedSpa for your IPL treatment, here’s what you can expect:

  • Consultation: Our specialists will evaluate your skin condition and discuss all your aesthetic preferences to ensure you opt for IPL treatment.
  • Preparation: The skin is cleaned. A cooling gel is then applied to the skin area that will be treated. You will be made to wear special goggles so that the intense light does not affect your eyes.
  • Procedure: The IPL device is gently moved over the area to be treated, delivering light pulses. You may feel some snapping, like a rubber band against the skin, but actually, the discomfort is very minimal.
  • Duration: Each session takes between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the treated area.

Post-Treatment Care and Results

After the treatment, you may notice mild redness and warmth, akin to sunburn. These symptoms are temporary and usually subside within a few hours. Applying ice packs and moisturizers can help soothe the skin. It’s essential to avoid sun exposure and use broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the treated areas.

Improvements are often visible after the first session, with more pronounced results appearing after subsequent treatments. Over time, you’ll notice a more even skin tone, smoother texture, and a radiant complexion.

Maximizing the Benefits of IPL Treatment

Long-Term Care for Enhanced Results

To maximize the benefits of your IPL treatment at LaserSkin MedSpa, consider the following tips:

  • Maintenance: Followed by the periodic maintenance session, depending on the state of your skin, to maintain the results.
  • Skincare routine: Use very mild, non-abrasive items in the skincare routine. Avoid products that may irritate the skin just after treatment.
  • Sun Protection: Protect yourself from the sun’s skinning rays by reapplying high-SPF sunscreen, wearing a hat, and seeking shade between the highest activity hours of the sun.
