Intense pulsed light (IPL)

What Is IPL  Laser Treatment?

Intense pulsed light (IPL Laser) therapy, aka photo facial, is a way to improve the color and texture of your skin without surgery. It can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure — called photoaging. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands, or chest.

Moreover IPL Laser may help if you have red, brown, or splotchy skin because of a health condition.

How IPL Laser Treatment Works

IPL Laser uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin.

When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the thing you’re being treated for. It can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time.

After IPL, you may look younger because your skin tone is more even. And since the light doesn’t hurt other tissue, you can get better quickly.
