Rejuvenate Your Skin with IPL Treatments


If holiday stresses and the colder weather have left you with a dull complexion, rejuvenate your look for 2015 with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. This innovative skin rejuvenation treatment is effective for treating sun damaged skin and can also help patients with rosacea. If you are self-conscious about freckles, dark spots, or an uneven complexion, talk to us about IPL treatments that can rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. You’ll see results within a few short weeks, and progressive results as the skin continues to heal and regenerate.

Are IPL Treatments Right for Me?

The Lumenis One IPL treatment is designed to restore youthful skin from the inside out. Multiple laser and light energies work together to stimulate collagen production deep within the tissues and correct pigmentation issues. You may be a good candidate for IPL therapy if you have the following skin issues:

  • Pigmentation flaws that are difficult to hide with makeup
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Extensive sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin tone

There is little to no downtime involved with IPL therapy, making it an attractive option for patients with busy lifestyles. We can work around your schedule and you will be able to wear makeup shortly after treatment.

What to Expect with IPL Therapy

Your skin may be a little flushed immediately after treatment, but this will dissipate within a few hours. You’ll notice that your skin has a slightly darker hue as the top layer starts to go through the exfoliation process, and it will take a few weeks for the skin to regenerate completely. The goal of IPL is to trigger changes deep within the skin and to speed up the cell renewal process. You’ll notice progressive results as the skin continues to heal and regenerate. IPL therapy is very effective for treating premature signs of aging and enhancing the skin tone.

Most patients see results after a single treatment, but you may need a series of treatments spaced several weeks or months apart to get the best possible results. We can prepare a custom treatment plan based on your skin care goals during your consultation. Schedule your IPL therapy consultation today!
