What is IPL?
IPL is short for Intense Pulsed Light and is also called broadband light (BBL), photorejuvenation, or photofacial. Though it is similar to a laser, IPL is not a laser. Laser treatments often only treat one specific skin concern at a time. Alternatively, IPL machines are different. We are able to vary the wavelengths of light IPL machines use, so we can often treat numerous skin issues at once. For example, did you know that IPL can be used to treat scars, dark marks, scarring, and rosacea?
Who is a good candidate for this treatment?
Those who suffer from the following are likely good candidates for BBL treatments:
- Pigment Issues
- Brown and Red Spots
How long will IPL results last?
The best results come as your skin turns over, which can take up to a few months, depending on your skin. If you are looking for a quick treatment for an upcoming party, other treatments will be better for you. But, if you’re looking for great results and don’t mind waiting a little bit (honestly, haven’t you been waiting already?), then IPL is a great option to give you a more flawless, youthful complexion.
How many IPL treatments do I need?
We recommend patients receive between one and three treatments photofacial treatments, depending on what issues you’re trying to treat. We can give you more information when we see you in person during your consultation.
