What does IPL laser treatment do?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and treatment with this light is a form of light therapy. Really, this therapy is a great way to diminish the signs of aging, and this is the main benefit. The treatment can be done to treat esthetic issues like wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun damage, freckles, birthmarks, varicose veins, broken blood vessels, rosacea, and more. It can even be done to treat unwanted hair in areas like the neck, back, face, chest, legs, underarms, and other areas.
You might be thinking you can do these things with standard laser treatment, but IPL is better. Let’s talk about why that is so.
How is IPL different from laser?
The two forms of treatment are similar, but the differences are important. With standard laser treatment, only one wavelength of light is focused at your skin, whereas with IPL laser treatment, multiple wavelengths are used. This allows the IPL treatment to penetrate down to the second layer of skin (the dermis) without harming the upper layer (the epidermis). This avoids causing damage to your skin’s surface. Then, the light energy is converted into heat which destroys the unwanted pigment, unhealthy cells, or hair follicles in the area.
It’s possible to use IPL treatment anywhere on the body, but it’s important to note that it isn’t always recommended for people with darker skin tones or thick scarring.
Does IPL laser treatment work?
The treatment can work really well for many patients, yes! As we said above, there are some people the treatment may not be best for, but there are many others the treatment is ideal for. For hair removal, IPL treatment works better on thicker, darker hair, as opposed to fine, lighter hair, but it may work for you regardless. To treat any issue, it takes several sessions for patients to get the results they want. Speaking of results, you can almost certainly expect them, and if you treat an issue like wrinkles, you can expect to have a more youthful look after! Results can be dramatic for many patients and you could be one of these patients.
How long does it take to recover from IPL laser treatment?
Another one of the benefits of IPL treatment is how easy it is for the patient. Recovery time depends on things like what area of the body was treated and how thoroughly the area was treated, but generally, patients recover quickly. Any redness or discoloration will go away within a few hours and after that, the patient will be feeling just fine and can get back to regular activities.
