At The Aesthetic Center at Eye Centers of Florida, we understand how difficult it can be when your skin starts to show the impact of issues caused by medical conditions, sun damage, and aging. We’re proud to provide residents of Southwest Florida with rejuvenating intense pulsed light (IPL) laser treatments that treat blemishes and enhance beauty, helping our patients fall in love with their skin.
What is IPL Laser Treatment?
IPL laser therapy is an aesthetic treatment that uses the energy from light to remove — or improve the appearance of — a variety of different types of issues. Unlike traditional laser therapy, which uses a single wavelength of focused energy, an IPL laser emits scattered energy. Using scattered energy allows us to treat the second layer of skin, prompting cell rejuvenation and healing from within. It also allows us to treat multiple conditions at once, all while avoiding damage to the skin’s surface.
What Does IPL Laser Treatment Do?
IPL is exceptionally useful for facial and hand rejuvenation because of its ability to lessen the appearance of issues brought on by aging, such as wrinkles, age spots, and sunspots.
IPL treatment can also address:
- Broken blood vessels
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin
- Unwanted hair
- Varicose veins
- Vascular lesions
What Happens During IPL Laser Treatment?
Before your IPL treatment, our aesthetic experts will clean the treatment area and prepare your skin with a cooling gel solution. Next, we’ll provide you with protective glasses to wear while we use the IPL laser and apply light to your skin.
Because the light from IPL therapy is treating the deeper layers of skin, you may experience a minor stinging sensation, and your skin may feel slightly tender after treatment, like a sunburn. This is normal and should fade away in 4-6 hours.
IPL Laser Treatment Benefits
IPL therapy is quick, with treatments averaging around 30 minutes; however, the time of your procedure will vary depending on the size of the treatment area. It’s also non-invasive, providing exceptional results without damaging the top layers of your skin. IPL laser treatment also has minimal recovery time and side effects, meaning you can return to your daily routine shortly after your treatment.
