Intense Pulsed Light
Intense pulsed light (IPL), or flashlamp therapy, is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of the following skin problems: Hair Removal, Pigment, Sun Damage, and Rosacea.
IPL treatments can be performed anywhere on the body – Including the face, neck, chest and hands. IPL treatments involve little to no downtime! Results can usually be achieved in one to three treatments.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. Sensitivity, irritation, soft scabbing, or redness can sometimes occur at the treatment site but resolves quickly or within a matter of days. In certain cases, skin can become slightly lighter or darker. During your consultation you'll be informed as to whether or not you would be susceptible to these conditions. To greatly minimize the risk of complication, sun exposure needs to be limited for two to three weeks before and after treatment.
