Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a popular non-invasive anti-aging treatment for smoother, softer, more radiant looking skin. One of the latest treatments in modern dermatology, it targets the lower layers of the skin, the dermis, but doesn’t affect the epidermis, the top layers of skin.
It can be used to address a variety of issues attributed to aging skin, including to counter the effects of sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, target pigmentation and to treat broken capillaries, rosacea (blotchy redness in the face) or skin blemishes. The procedure encourages collagen production – which naturally reduces as we get older – resulting in smooth and supple skin and a fresher, more youthful complexion.
Also known as photo rejuvenation and photo facial, IPL can also be used to remove http://nygoodhealth.com unwanted hair and treat stretch marks and mild to moderate acne.
IPL works by using high intensity pulses of visible light to improve your skin’s appearance in problematic areas, usually on the face, neck, chest and hands. Whether you’re looking to treat sun damaged skin, erase freckles or reduce unsightly brown spots and birthmarks, it’s likely that several treatments of IPL will be required.
