Changes to skin color can occur for a variety of reasons: sun damage, vitamin deficiency, hormone imbalance, rosacea, acne, hyper pigmentation, aging and more. While a variety of treatment options are available to address pigmentation concerns, many people prefer the results achieved with Laser IPL (intense pulse light).
This effective method can answer your skin damage concerns in a non-invasive way.
Wondering how Laser IPL works? Here’s how
Unlike the single wavelength of light found in traditional lasers, Laser IPL uses a bright light covered with filters that block most wavelengths except those associated with pigment and blood vessels.
The energy from the light essentially damages the pigmented skin (or melanin), which triggers the skin’s repair mechanisms to remove the damaged tissue and ultimately enhance the skin’s appearance. A slight darkening of the skin may occur prior to healing.
Depending on the cause and extent of your pigmentation concerns, optimum results can typically be expected after three to six treatments. There is minimal downtime associated with Laser IPL.
While we will go over all pre and post treatment procedures and concerns during your consultation it’s important to note that you should avoid tanning and self-tanning in the weeks prior as well as avoid high impact exercise and consuming alcohol in the days after treatment.
