IPL treatment for skin blemishes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When your skin shows signs of aging or damage to the environment, it can result in discoloration, scars, age spots, and discoloration. A non-invasive procedure, called IPL, can help you have the flawless skin you want.

What is IPL treatment?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a procedure used by dermatologists to treat different skin blemishes for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. Facial redness, skin pigmentation, sun damage, and spider vein removal are just a few examples of what IPL can correct.

How does IPL help with skin blemishes?

IPL targets the following types of skin blemishes, with one type being the main focus of treatment. IPL helps eliminate:

  • sun damage

  • spider veins

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Age spots

  • Freckles

  • Facial flushing

  • Rosacea

  • Vascular injuries (broken capillaries, blood vessels)

  • Skin texture imperfections

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

What Happens During IPL Treatment?

IPL uses intense light with filters to block particular wavelengths. The light energy passes below the surface of the skin and damages the blood vessels or skin pigment. When IPL’s broad spectrum of light is specially filtered, it allows IPL to treat multiple skin conditions at once.

The first thing to protect the face of the skin is to apply a cooling gel to the treatment area. The IPL device settings are adjusted to match your skin color and specific conditions. A localized test is done in a less visible place, usually near the jaw. After a few minutes, your doctor checks how your skin reacts. If there is no adverse reaction, the session continues.

Most people report that IPL is virtually painless. While undergoing the photofacial IPL procedure, you may feel a sensation similar to that of a rubber band hitting your skin. Other sensations may desire a light electric shock around the nose and mouth area.

Your body’s aptitude to repair skin then removes damaged tissue. The result is smoother, more even-looking skin. It may take three to six treatments for significant results to be noticed, and treatment sessions are generally held every three to four weeks. The number of sessions will depend on the extent of the skin conditions you want to correct and their depth.

What is the difference between IPL and lasers?

IPL is a lot like laser treatments. All of these technologies use light to heat and eliminate their targets. Lasers generally use a single wavelength or color of light that treats only one condition.

IPL works with a broad spectrum of light delivered in rapid pulses. IPL can treat a variety of skin conditions depending on the filtering used. If you want to treat age spots and thread veins, for example, these are two different laser treatments, but IPL combines them.

Advantages of IPL treatment over other skin treatments

  • IPL light wavelengths absorb excess red/brown skin pigment, returning an even complexion.

  • IPL improves overall skin tone by activating collagen production.

  • IPL is non-ablative, which means that no skin is removed during treatment.

  • IPL comes with little or no recovery time.

Do IPL treatment pose risks or symptoms?

One symptom of IPL Treatment near me is that skin pigmentation may initially become red or darker. In less than a day, pigmented areas peel off, leaving flawless skin underneath. Many other skin blemishes, such as birthmarks and age spots, can disappear in a matter of a few days. you’ll experience some redness and tenderness for the primary 48 hours.
