What is IPL?
Intense Pulse Light therapy (IPL) utilizes various light wavelengths to treat a variety of conditions. In our office we offer IPL for the treatment of dispersed redness, Rosacea, to minimize small capillaries, and hyper-pigmentation of the face, décolletage and hands.
How long does IPL treatment take?
Laser and IPL treatments usually take about 15 to 30 minutes. For maximum benefit, treatments are usually repeated 3 to 4 times, over the course of several months.
Is there downtime with IPL?
IPL treatments do not require significant downtime, however some redness and light scabbing may occur with certain applications.
Are there special post-treatment instructions?
Post-treatment, patients are advised to avoid excess UV exposure and to wear ample amounts of sunscreen.
