IPL Skin


Ready for beautiful skin?

Photorejuvenation uses pulses of broad spectrum light energy to clinically reverse signs of aging by altering your skin at the cellular level. IPL treatment has been FDA approved since the 1990’s and is considered one of the most effective non-invasive rejuvenating treatments for aging skin. Photofacials are typically used to treat minor imperfections such as skin discoloration, sun damage, brown spots, acne, scars and even vascular lesions including rosacea! Photorejuvenation can also address hyperpigmentation, cherry angiomas, spider veins and scars on the body. 

WHAT IS IPL? IPL photo facials use a broad-spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of skin. This type of photo facial primarily targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) while leaving the top layers of skin (epidermis) unaffected. The heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating a number of different dermatological issues. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a cosmetic skin treatment that may help reduce the signs of aging, remove unwanted hair, reduce acne outbreaks, lighten darker patches of skin, and improve the appearance of scars and spider veins.

WHAT CAN IPL TREAT? - Acne - Sun damage - Age spots - Rosacea - Fine lines - Wrinkles - Large pores - Pigmentation - Uneven skin tone - Broken capillaries - Spider veins - Birthmarks - Scars

WHAT CAN IPL TREAT ON THE BODY? As with the face, IPL can help address sun damage, pigmentation issues, cherry angiomas (red spots), and spider veins on the body as well. Areas: - Shoulders - Back - Stomach - Arms - Hands - Legs

HOW DOES PRICING WORK? Pricing is determined by size of the treatment area... small spot, one area and two areas. Small Spot Treatment: Up to 3 small skin irregularities. Each small irregularity is less than the size of a dime. Examples: Cherry Angiomas Small Sun Spots Broken facial capillaries Treatment Area Options: - Face (pigmentation, acne, anti-aging, broken capillaries, rosacea) - Neck/Chest - Hands - Shoulders - Back - Stomach - Arms - Legs Your IPL expert will help determine your treatment area size.

HOW MANY SESSIONS OF IPL TREATMENT ARE NEEDED? It may take several sessions to achieve your desired results depending on the type of skin concern and size of the area. We recommend 3-6 IPL treatments performed one month apart initially and then one to two treatments per year thereafter as maintenance. While you should start to see some great results after the first IPL session, the best outcomes occur after several treatments. Keep in mind that significant sun damage will take longer to treat. SPF 30 and higher must be worn daily to prevent recurrence of brown spots and to reduce future sun damage.

HOW DOES IPL WORK? IPL uses light energy and multiple wavelengths to accurately target and remove pigmented or damaged skin cells or hair follicles. Using a handheld device, your IPL professional will target multiple wavelengths of light into the skin. This light heats cells in the skin and breaks them down. The body then removes the damaged tissue naturally.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE? - Fair skin, minimally affected by tanning - Reasonably elastic skin - Reasonable expectations for the outcome WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE? - Very dark skin: IPL is not recommended for individuals with very dark skin, as the high-energy light used in the treatment may be absorbed by the melanin in the skin, leading to increased risk of side effects such as hyperpigmentation. - Active skin infections or rashes: IPL should not be performed on individuals with active skin infections or rashes, as the treatment may exacerbate these conditions. - Accutane use: Individuals who have recently taken or are currently taking the medication Accutane should not undergo IPL treatment, as the treatment may increase the risk of side effects such as scarring. - Pregnancy: IPL is generally not recommended for pregnant women, as the safety of the treatment during pregnancy has not been established. - Antibiotics use: It is generally not recommended to undergo IPL treatment while taking antibiotics because antibiotics can increase the skin's sensitivity to sunlight and other environmental factors, and using IPL in combination with antibiotics may further increase the risk of sun sensitivity and skin irritation. - Retin-A/Retinoid use: Must be discontinued 2-4 weeks proir to treatment.

HOW WILL I LOOK AFTER MY IPL? There is no downtime, although you may be a little red and experience slight stinging after your treatment. Some treatment areas may temporarily appear deeper in color (called peppering) after IPL therapy but this fades after several days. Some areas of hyperpigmentation may peel a few days after a treatment. Large vascular regions, such as spider veins on the legs, will appear darker and will lighten over a period of several weeks.

WHAT DOES IPL FEEL LIKE? While you may feel a slight tingling (similar to the snap of a rubber hand) from the IPL hand piece, most people tolerate the procedure very well. Some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, you may choose to have a topical anaesthetic applied to increase comfort during the procedure. The Zemits Light Expert IPL device is equpipped with a cooling hand piece.

IPL vs LASER IPL is often compared to a laser treatment but while IPL is similar it does have its differences. Lasers use one light wavelength to target and treat the skin, whereas IPL taps into many wavelengths to address multiple skin concerns. - IPL can treat a wider range of skin conditions than lasers. - IPL handpieces have a larger surface area than most lasers, making it more efficient to treat a broader area of skin. - IPL treatments tend to be less expensive than laser treatments. - IPL recovery is typically faster than laser treatments. - IPL treatments tend to be more affordable than laser treatments. - IPL treatments have lower complication risks because their light is less concentrated. - Laser treatment is usually considered more uncomfortable than IPL treatment since the light in a laser is more concentrated.
