What is IPL?

Our advanced IPL technology allows us to safely, easily, and effectively treat many benign pigmentation and vascular skin lesions painlessly on an out-patient basis.

How do IPL treatments work?

IPL treatments are performed with a non-invasive medical system that uses intense pulsed light therapy to reduce melanin (the dark pigment in your skin).

The light energy is gently delivered to your skin in pulses, with a delicate computer-controlled hand piece. After your IPL treatment, lesion or hair will gradually fade and slowly disappear.

Are IPL treatment safe?

Yes, IPL system has been used successfully in hundreds of thousands of treatments. IPL allows your doctor to customized each treatment to your specific skin type and the condition being treated. This flexible, interactive approach to treatment cannot be reached using any other non-invasive treatment that is currently available.

Do IPL treatment hurt?

Some patients say they feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin, followed by the feeling of sunburn. However, anesthetics are not necessary.

What conditions can IPL treat?

  • Freckles
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Seborrheic Keratoses
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Port Wine Stains
  • Rosacea
  • Spider Veins

How many treatments are required?

This depends on the size, location, depth and the color of your lesion. Spider Veins and age spots on the face generally do well with one or two treatments, while darker or deeper birthmarks may require additional treatments. Port wine stains, hemangiomas and leg veins usually experience satisfactory results from IPL treatments with four to eight treatment sessions. Each session usually lasts about 15-20 minutes. Treatments should be placed 4 to 8 weeks apart to allow your body to remove the maximum amount of pigment cells. Results can vary from person to person. You will continue to see lightening of your lesion after each treatment as your body disposes of the pigmentation cells.
