IPL Q & A

How does an IPL treatment work?

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, involves using light energy to treat damaged skin and promote healthy skin production. IPL beams penetrate deep through the surface of your skin and gently elevate the temperatures of tissues. This heating effect triggers a cascade of natural healing events within your skin cell structure.

IPL specifically targets pigment-producing cells that lead to redness, blotchiness, and overall uneven skin tone and texture. As the light energy converts to heat, it breaks up melanin pigments and destroys cells responsible for producing excess melanin.

Treated cells rise to the surface of your skin and start to disperse. Over time, these treated cells flake off. IPL photorejuvenation even forces deeper skin tissues to constrict and tighten, which minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The end result is more radiant, vibrant, and even-toned skin.

What can an IPL photorejuvenation session treat?

An IPL photorejuvenation session at Aesthetic + Wellness can resolve many of the skin imperfections you may have on your face, neck, hands, décolleté, shoulders, or another problem area. IPL treatments can reduce the appearance of:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Brown spots
  • Freckles
  • Facial veins
  • Spider veins
  • Large pores
  • Lines and wrinkles

Your IPL photorejuvenation service at Aesthetic + Wellness is entirely tailored to you. Because this noninvasive treatment can be performed just about anywhere on your body, the team customizes your IPL treatment package based on your specific concerns. For optimal results, it’s usually best to schedule at least three to five monthly IPL sessions, with annual touch-ups encouraged.

Is there any downtime after an IPL treatment?

It’s normal to experience some slight redness or irritation after an IPL photorejuvenation session, although these minor side effects tend to fade away within a few hours. Aside from these possible concerns, you won’t have any downtime after your IPL session at Aesthetic + Wellness. You can even re-apply makeup and return right back to work afterward.

Because you’re more prone to developing sun damage as your skin heals after an IPL photorejuvenation service, it’s important to wear sunscreen on the treated area anytime you’re exposed to sunlight. Aesthetic + Wellness practitioners can help you select the best sunscreen for your specific skin concerns.
