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.

What kind of treatment is IPL?

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light treatment; is a photorejuvenation method that uses a range of different wavelengths of light, which penetrate deeply into the skin to reach the pigment cells and even work on the production of collagen but without affecting the epidermis.

What kind of skin problems could IPL be used to treat?

IPL effectively combats sun damage, frejsonckles, age spots, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and uneven skin texture.

How long does one take in a sitting of an IPL session?

Typically, each session of IPL will take 20 to 30 minutes, given that each session depends on the part of the body being treated.

Does IPL hurt?

A snapping sensation is felt on the skin by people similar to a rubber band during the process of IPL treatment, though any discomfort may be at a very low level.

How many sessions would I have to go through to see positive results? 

Results can, of course, vary from person to person, but an improvement in the condition is normally noticed even after the first treatment. More than one treatment may be necessary to achieve the very best results, and all treatments may be weeks apart.
