Helpful Things to Know
What is IPL Therapy?
IPL is a form of light-based therapy designed to bypass upper layers of the skin in order to penetrate the dermis, or middle layers of the skin, making it a non-ablative treatment. It works by generating a polychromatic light pulse consisting of many wavelengths of light using xenon flash lamps, focusing the energy of the flash onto problem areas of the skin. This is gentler and safer compared to the monochromatic light of traditional lasers.
What Can I Get Treated?
IPL treatments are notable for their wide range of applications, and they are able to be used for healing broken capillaries and erythema beneath the skin, as well as the treatment of more common skincare issues such as acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, scarring, and uneven skin texture. IPL therapy can be applied to almost any part of the body except for the area around the eyes and the inner ears.
How Does IPL Therapy Heal Your Skin?
IPL works by flashing a focused burst of light, which affects skin cells containing melanin, as well as the roots of other blemishes. By adjusting the wavelength of the light being used, specific skin types and areas of skin can be addressed. This process encourages regenerative healing of the problematic skin tissue without affecting skin tissue that’s already healthy.
