What is IPL and How Can it Help Me?
- July 4, 2018
As women we all want to look and feel our very best. And let’s be honest with each other, when we have those unwanted hairs or age spots and the like, we search for options to help us achieve beautiful skin. One of those therapies is Intense Pulsed Light or IPL, which is a long-term light therapy treatment used to minimize or remove:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms or bikini line
How Does IPL Work?
IPL’s light is scattered and less focused than a laser. This powerful light penetrates deep to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), causing significantly less damage to your skin.
What is the Typical Cost?
The area you are treating determines the cost for an IPL treatment. This type of procedure is considered cosmetic so it won’t be covered by most health insurances plans.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
Several treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results, which you can discuss with your healthcare professional. They will be able to guide you through that process.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects are minimal and all depends on the individual receiving the treatment. The majority of people will experience mild redness or swelling after their first treatment, which will usually fade away within a couple days. In some extreme cases, you could experience bruising, blistering, change in skin color or infection.
Is There Any Down Time?
The recovery is quick and you will be back to your normal, everyday activities the next day! Sensitivity and redness to the treated area of skin is normal and will fade after a few hours.
