Also known as a photo facial, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy improves skin texture and color without surgery. It can reverse some of the damage from sun exposure, and help correct red, brown, or splotchy skin. This treatment uses light energy to target a certain pigment in the skin, and treats a range of conditions simultaneously.
Noninvasive Treatment with No Recovery Time
You should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after IPL. The treatment area may be red and sensitive for a few hours (similar to a sunburn) and you may experience slight swelling. Skin sensitivity will continue for a few days after the procedure. You may need to avoid using hot water until you heal.
