Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a new and exciting way to improve and rejuvenate the skin. Unlike a laser, which emits one specific wavelength of light, IPL emits a broad spectrum of light with each pulse. The broad spectrum of light in each pulse allows us to treat a variety of skin imperfections at the same time. The state-of-the-art machine we use is the Lumenis One, one of the most advanced IPL units produced. Treatments are quick and effective with very little downtime.
Avoid the sun before and after treatment. Having a tan interferes with the treatment. Consider regular use of a daily moisturizing broad-spectrum sunblock with an SPF of at least 30.
