Everything you need to know about ipl treatments

Even though summer is over and we're heading into sweater season, your skin is still reeling from the effects of sun damage, dryness and dark spots. Luckily for you we are experts in treating damaged skin with the IPL facial.

IPL stands for intense pulsed light, meaning the treatment uses a variety of wavelengths of light instead of a laser.

An IPL treatment uses the power of broadband light to improve the appearance of sun spots, rosacea, age spots, and skin texture. The treatment can also be used for hair removal, photo rejuvenation, as well as to alleviate dermatologic diseases like acne. It is a popular treatment because its effective, affordable, and non-invasive.

What does IPL Treat?

You can use IPL to minimize or remove:

age spots

sun damage



varicose veins

broken blood vessels on your face


hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, or bikini line

How do you prep for an IPL facial?

The most important thing is to avoid sun exposure including tanning beds. Also you'll want to stop using any skin irritants a few days before including retinols and retinoids. Do not wax, get injections or have a peel before the procedure.

What Do IPL Procedures Do For Your Skin? 

A handheld device is passed across the skin delivering pulses of broad spectrum light to the deep layers of the skin. Since the handheld device employs a light to influence the skin on a molecular level,  there is no need for any incisions or injections. You can think of it like a blinking flashlight, sending out scattered wavelengths of light, making an IPL very targeted for specific problem areas or skin concerns.

Depending on which part of your body is being treated and how large the area is, the treatment should take 20 to 30 minutes.

To get the results you want, you may need to have three to six treatments. Those treatments should be spaced about one month apart to let your skin heal in between. Hair removal requires 6 to 12 treatments.
