Intense Pulsed Light Pasadena
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), or Phototherapy, can be used for many different treatments on the skin. Most commonly, it is used to improve the color and texture of skin without surgery. It can treat some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure, which is also called photoaging.
IPL is not a laser, but uses light energy in multiple wavelengths as pulses to target a certain color in your skin. However, it can be used for any number of skin conditions, including:
- Brown spots such as “liver spots” or “age spots”
- Pigmentation from hormonal changes
- Discolored skin
- Fine wrinkles
- Redness from rosacea
- Broken blood vessels
- Unwanted hair
- Spider veins
Benefits of IPL Treatments
Since broad-spectrum light spreads out naturally, IPL devices are able to provide greater coverage than other laser devices. Because of its ability to treat large areas at once, it is able to offer quicker treatment. Apart from this, they are also known to be considerably cheaper. However, you might need more sessions to achieve similar results as you will get from some other laser procedures.
Through an IPL treatment, our team can treat a wide range of skin conditions successfully by altering the intensity of light. They set the light according to the skin type and the skin condition that needs to be treated. For example, VPL (Variable Pulsed Light) is a variation of IPL. Through this, the user is able to modify the light pulses settings to best suit the type of skin they are trying to treat.
IPL treatments can be customized to suit different skin tones. Different skin tones will have different skin requirements for light-based treatment.
