IPL Skin


WHAT IS IPL? 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 scars - birthmarks - rosacea - scars - spider veins - stretch marks - sun damaged skin - wrinkles

HOW DOES IT WORK? IPL works in a similar way to laser therapy. The difference is that where laser therapy delivers a single wavelength of light energy, IPL delivers multiple wavelengths. This means that IPL can treat a larger area of skin in a shorter time than laser therapy with no downtime.

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 to two months 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. We advise wearing daily sunscreen, SPF 30 and higher, to prevent recurrence of brown spots and to reduce future sun damage.

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 maytemporarily look deeper in color after IPL therapy but this fades after 3-5 days. Some ares such as hyperpigmentation or spider veins may crust or peel a few days after a treatment.

HOW DOES TREATMENT FEEL? 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.
