New Year, New You: How IPL Can Help You Look Younger


The New Year is a time of new beginnings, but also a reminder that time marches on. The years might keep ticking by but, with IPL, the signs of aging don’t have to come along for the journey. IPL can help you look younger in 2016 than you did years ago. Call today and learn more about what IPL can do for you.

What Is IPL?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light and is a powerful anti-aging treatment that uses intense light to treat various skin conditions. You may have heard it referred to as a photo-facial. The intense light can transform your skin, treating broken capillaries, facial veins, brown spots, sun spots, age spots, and other skin concerns. It is a very effective treatment and maintenance option for patients suffering from rosacea or pigmentation problems. IPL is non-surgical, non-invasive, and requires no downtime.

How Will IPL Help to Rejuvenate My Skin?

IPL works by targeting the pigment in hyperpigmentation/brown spots (melanin) and the oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels, heating it and allowing the body to naturally reabsorb it. This can result in dramatic changes in the appearance of your skin and fewer coloration problems. If you yearn for a youthful, creamy complexion, IPL can help you achieve it. Unlike a laser treatment, IPL uses a broad spectrum of light as opposed to a single wavelength.

We typically start patients out with a series of initial treatments (often 2-4 to begin). You’ll see changes after the very first treatment, but your results will continue to get better and better as the series progresses. Each treatment in the initial series is typically spaced 2-4 weeks apart. For patients with rosacea, we may recommend ongoing treatments as part of your existing dermatological regimen.

Is IPL Right for Me?

IPL is a versatile treatment and is a good choice for many patients. If you’re interested in learning more about IPL, call and schedule an appointment. IPL may benefit you if:

  • You have age spots, brown spots, sun spots, etc.
  • If you have broken capillaries or visible facial veins.
  • If you suffer from rosacea.
  • If you want a more even, creamy skin tone.
  • If you want a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation option.
