Intense pulse light, or IPL laser, is a therapy that is used to clear the complexion. This unique laser therapy targets pigmented skin and troublesome skincare issues without damaging the surrounding healthy skin. This treatment also has some benefits for anti-aging and diminishing fine lines, as well. Here’s what you need to know about IPL therapy and how it can help you.
Conditions Treated by IPL
There are several skincare conditions that IPL therapy can help treat. Those who are fighting an intense acne breakout or frequent breakouts can greatly benefit from IPL therapy. While it may not eliminate acne, it can reduce its severity to reduce the risk of scarring. Sun spots and freckles can also be diminished or eliminated with IPL therapy. IPL can eliminate hyperpigmentation completely. IPL can also be used to treat skin flushing or redness.
Additional Benefits for Your Skin
IPL therapy has some additional benefits for your skin besides treating the conditions noted above. IPL therapy has been proven to tighten the skin and make it look more youthful. The skin tightening capability of IPL also means that it diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and can even reduce the appearance of scarring from chickenpox or acne.
Easy and Convenient
IPL laser therapy doesn’t have any downtime or recovery period. You will be able to return to normal activities right away, and your treatment will only take about 30 minutes to complete depending on your skin’s condition and the target areas for the treatment. You can easily have the treatment on your lunch break or any other time during your busy day.
