IPL Laser Q & A
What is IPL laser treatment?
IPL is a light treatment that uses broadband light at multiple wavelengths to treat skin problems. Laser treatment uses a single beam to address issues. The IPL laser treatment at Rejuvenax Spa, located at the office of Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS, combines the two.
IPL laser treatment is very powerful, but it’s also very gentle. The light penetrates your epidermis, the topmost skin layer, without doing any damage at all. The dermis, your skin’s first underlayer, absorbs the light and then gradually grows warmer. The warmth activates your internal healing process, including new skin cell growth, new collagen, and new elastin.
What do IPL laser treatments do for my skin?
IPL laser treatment is an excellent general skin treatment. Some of the many issues that the IPL laser helps with include:
- Pigmentation such as age spots
- Broken capillaries and spider veins
- Skin redness
- Large pores
- Patchy skin texture
- Sallow skin
In addition to improving the surface of your skin, IPL laser treatments also help with toning and tightening over time. Within around a month of treatment, your body starts modeling new collagen and elastin. The collagen minimizes wrinkles, and even acne scars, by adding new volume. The elastin enhances your skin elasticity to make it tighter.
Your provider customizes your treatment to deal with your exact concerns and problems.
What do IPL laser treatments feel like?
IPL laser treatments aren’t painful, but there might be some snaps or stings as the light waves enter your skin. The light waves are very fast, so any minor discomfort goes away almost immediately.
How should I get ready for IPL treatments?
Your Rejuvenax Spa care provider tells you how to prepare. You should avoid sun exposure for a couple of weeks before your treatment session. Certain types of medication, mainly specific antibiotics, can trigger photosensitivity so you might need to either discontinue it temporarily.
How many IPL laser treatments do I need?
Although you can enjoy benefits from only one treatment, most patients have a series of IPL laser sessions to maximize their results. Your treatments usually happen around a month apart, which allows enough time for cellular turnover. You’ll see steady great results as you go.
