After a summer (or many!) of chasing after a golden glow, you may be starting to assess the skin damage that has come from all of that sun exposure. Fortunately, there is a way to erase summer skin damage. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an in-office light therapy procedure used to treat discoloration and wrinkles for improved skin tone and texture.
Sun damage, age spots, and wrinkles can prematurely add years to your appearance. IPL uses light to correct imperfections on the skin. However, unlike laser treatment which uses one wavelength of light, IPL uses filtered light to target melanin in the skin, heating it and breaking it up so that the body can reabsorb it. Releasing light of many different wavelengths allows penetration down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), causing less damage to your skin.
IPL is a non-invasive procedure that, when performed by an experienced aesthetician, can erase visible signs of sun damage, age spots, freckles, birthmarks, broken blood vessels and more. IPL treatment can be used all over the body, including the face, chest, and hands to improve the visible signs of sun damage and aging. IPL can also be combined with a chemical peel or topical regimen to address other skin concerns simultaneously. Correcting the visible signs of aging and sun exposure improves your complexion, leaving a healthy, more youthful appearance.
