Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
This is a non-invasive light therapy used to effectively reduce and/or remove certain skin conditions like hyperpigmentation, freckles, sun spots, rosacea, redness, and visible facial veins. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy helps to give skin a smoother appearance by minimizing pore size. This treatment is safe on all areas of the body.
The way IPL works is by administering a broad spectrum of light that is transmitted via a very small hand piece. Filters in the hand piece are controlled by the physician to change the wavelength range. In this manner, it can be optimized for various applications, as well as skin types. The penetrating light enters the tissue and becomes absorbed by the blood or the melanin during treatment, depending on what the treatment is.
The body has a natural process to remove the injured tissue, and the skin gains a more even and more youthful appearance.
IPL produces very few side effects. To learn more, schedule your appointment below or call us at (281) 649-7170.
