3 Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
- Posted on: Feb 28 2019
If you are looking for a way to enhance your current skincare regimen while also targeting a variety of skin care concerns that you have, then an IPL may do the trick. By using targeted intense pulse light therapy, we are able to use a controlled form of laser to help give you the best results possible. But what are the exact benefits of this treatment? Let’s take a closer look and see.
Treatment and Recovery Are Fast
If you don’t want a treatment that takes a long time to do and recover from, then you may want to consider getting IPL. Why? Because the treatment itself only takes about 30-90 minutes and recovery is very minimal. On average, we just encourage patients to baby their skin, use gentle skin care products, and avoid any contact with the sun.
It Treats a Variety of Different Issues
If you are looking for a skin care treatment that cannot only treat one of your primary skin concerns, but several at one time, then an IPL may do the trick. An IPL can:
- Reduce severe acne
- Reduce scars
- Lessen hyperpigmentation
- Tighten pores
- Reverse sun damage
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
It Can Be Used In Conjunction With Other Treatments
If you are currently being treated at our office for other skin care concerns, then we may recommend doing an IPL in conjunction with your other treatments. Usually, an IPL is gentle enough to do with other treatments so that you won’t have to worry about extreme skin sensitivity or irritation. However, during your consultation, we will be able to better determine whether or not this treatment will be right for you.
