IPL: Get ready for radiant and flawless skin!
IPL can also help lessen the appearance of pigmented spots, reduce pore size, and improve texture, and fine lines.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Also known as a “photo facial”, it delivers broadband light through the skin for skin rejuvenation. It is a non-invasive, collagen-producing treatment for uneven skin tone. IPL can also help lessen the appearance of pigmented spots, reduce pore size, and improve texture, and fine lines. The Candela GentleMax Pro proves time after time incredible, long lasting results. IPL is similar to a laser treatment. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash. The light penetrates multiple layers of the skin while leaving top layers unaffected. This causes the pigmentation to darken and eventually flake off on its own within 7-10 days.
IPL treatments are done to minimize or remove:
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Sun-damaged skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Varicose veins
- Broken blood vessels
How to prepare
It is important that you limit sun exposure at least two weeks before and after treatment. Exposure to the sun after treatment increases chances of hyperpigmentation and blistering.
Avoid collagen injections, chemical peels, medications, and creams containing vitamin A prior to treatment.
The lasers used in IPL target the cells with melanin (pigment or colour) in the skin. The light from the laser is turned into heat, which damages only the specific targeted area and not the area around it.
Most people need 3-5 treatments spaced four weeks apart.
What to expect
An IPL treatment is a 30-minute procedure involving only minimal discomfort.
Most people will have slight redness and swelling, but the majority of people return to work the same day. Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment.
It is important to wear a sunscreen daily with SPF 30 or greater with Zinc Oxide.
