All About IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy, also known as Photofacial or Photorejuvenation, is a type of facial skin treatment designed to help with sun damage, wrinkles, lines, and pigmentation. IPL can effectively reduce the appearance of sun-induced freckles, colored blotches, and general redness caused by disrupted capillaries in the skin. Additionally, IPL can be used for hair removal and to treat the appearance of undesirable spider veins, rosacea, acne, and sagging skin.

Creating Your Precise Results

IPL therapy devices are similar to facial lasers in that they include a precision wand and the ability to quickly adjust intensity settings during a procedure. This helps surgeons and licensed technicians precisely target problem areas on the face and provide evenly toned and incredibly effective results.

Additionally, our patients love IPL treatments because they come with minimal downtime. You’ll be able to rejoin your normal schedule quickly, without worrying about any kind of extended recovery period, with an outcome that can usually be seen immediately following a procedure.

How Does IPL Work for Me?

An IPL therapy device sends a concentrated broad spectrum of light through a narrow wand that is maneuvered carefully over the face. The power of these high-intensity doses of light waves can be adjusted to hit the blood or the melanin in order to correct redness or pigmentation, respectively, for extremely precise results that are tailored to your goals.

The light intentionally damages the skin tissue in the areas of concern and the body is then able to naturally eliminate the remaining dead cells. As the skin heals, healthy collagen production is encouraged and newer layers of tissue take the place of the older damaged cells. The end result is a youthful, vibrant, and even tone throughout the facial skin.

While it might seem counterintuitive to treat sun damage with more light, IPL therapy devices offer an element of control and sophistication that enables technicians to essentially erase damaged, blotched, and spotted skin. IPL therapy is a tried and true method of counteracting the additive and often unavoidable negative impact of sun exposure.

Your IPL Treatment Experience

IPL therapy is entirely non-invasive, requires very minimal downtime, and can be used on practically any type, tone, or texture of the skin. It is an excellent option for anyone with a desire to reduce the appearance of blotchiness, sun damage, discoloration, or other general pigmentation issues. Because IPL therapy is non-surgical, sessions are usually relatively quick and virtually painless. Most patients experience zero discomfort and are in and out within one to two hours. You’ll be given a clear idea of what you can expect in advance of your IPL session at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach.

After An IPL Session

You can return to work or normal daily activity almost immediately after receiving IPL therapy. The results are incredibly long-lasting and will remain consistent if you are able to properly avoid excessive direct sunlight or other skin-damaging conditions. Minor swelling, redness, and soreness can occur but will typically subside within a few days after your treatment.

Combining Your Treatments

IPL therapy can be combined with other facial rejuvenation or cosmetic enhancement procedures. You should always consult with a licensed professional in order to properly devise a treatment plan that’s right for you, and we work closely with our patients to create comprehensive results that empower them to live their very best lives.
