IPL is an effective treatment that works to reduce sun spots, brown pigmentation, unwanted hair, rosacea, and also treats skin discoloration. It even works to diffuse redness, leaving your skin looking and feeling refreshed.
If that’s not enough to get you excited, IPL is also an effective way to stimulate the production of collagen, the substance beneath the skin that gives it structure and strength. When we boost collagen production, it improves the texture of your skin, often halting signs of aging.
Feel Rejuvenated with IPL Treatment
IPL improves fine blood vessels and pigmentation. The medical-grade handheld device is passed across your skin to deliver powerful, fast flashes of light. As the light energy penetrates below your skin’s surface, so the heat breaks pigment down into small particles, which rise to the surface and form a crust or are flushed out by your lymphatic system. As your skin heals, so collagen and new skin cells are produced, smoothing out fine lines, plumping up your skin, and treating a range of pigmentation issues.
IPL Works Best on Light to Medium Skin Tones
Not everyone is suitable for IPL. Darker and tanned skin, for instance, has too much melanin which is difficult to treat with IPL. Light to medium skin tones, however, are excellent candidates for treatment if you’re looking to get rid of sunspots and even out the tone of your skin.
If you have light to medium skin, IPL can help you lessen or get rid of:
- Hormone-related dark spots
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Unwanted facial hair
- Discolored skin
- Spider veins
The best time to begin IPL treatment is in the winter when your skin is paler and also better protected from the sun.
