IPL, also known as photo-rejuvenation, is a straightforward, non-invasive procedure that is known to solve an array of skin conditions such as: blemishes, wrinkles, signs of aging, discoloration, shallow scarring and skin texture. The IPL itself is actually a powerful light source that has the ability to penetrate the skin by filtering wavelengths of light, gently affecting the deeper layers while sparing the outer layers. During the procedure, intense light is used from the IPL device that focuses specifically on the areas to be treated. The light itself helps trigger the production of collagen, which aids in healing fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, spots and discoloration.
It is important to note that contrary to lasers, IPL differs as it directs a broad spectrum high intensity light pulse compared to the more invasive, specific wavelength of a laser. In addition, it also works over a wider range of wavelengths, which means it can treat multiple skin conditions with a single device.
This treatment is ideal for patients who are looking for a non-invasive and painless solution to skin conditions that affect them and lower their confidence and self-esteem.
