Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light is not a laser. It is multiple wavelengths of light, in different frequencies, pulsed onto the skin. Different wavelengths are used based on the skin type (light or dark) and disease state we are treating.

Intense Pulsed Light is used to treat 'sun spots', 'age spots' and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body. IPL can also treat redness and flushing from rosacea; dilated and broken blood vessels on the face, neck and chest.

IPL is also often used for pigmented hair reduction on the face, neck, abdomen, underarms, bikini area and limbs.

Photorejuvenation, when done properly, almost always consists of a series of 3-5 treatments, usually one every month. The benefits of photorejuvenation treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk.
