Aging, skin conditions, sun exposure, and other events can discolor your skin, make the tone uneven, or produce fine lines and wrinkles. While there are many treatments for making your skin look fresh and young, the best treatment available for evening skin tone and resolving blemishes is IPL laser treatment. Learn what it is, how it works, and why you should try it.
What Is an IPL Laser?
The IPL laser is intense pulsed light laser. The focused pulsed light is directed at the target areas of the skin. This laser is able to lighten skin without affecting the healthy skin around the target area. It is safe for most skin types, and does not take long to complete. Results take 3 to 10 days and vary by individual.
Your IPL Treatment
IPL treatments are usually very quick and painless appointments. Your treatment will begin with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, it will seem as though you have a mild sunburn. Your skin will darken and flake off, with the desired results sometimes taking 3 to 10 days as the skin recovers. You may notice some immediate effects of blemishes caused by blood vessels immediately in some cases. Most people who benefit from IPL laser treatment only require one session to get the desired results.
IPL laser treatment offers lasting results. Your skin will continue to look and feel even and smooth long after the treatment. Blemishes and uneven skin tone are not likely to return without environmental factors. It is important that you follow a sunblock and skin care regimen immediately after and following your IPL laser treatment to protect your results.
