IPL Photofacial (Intense Pulse Light)
IPL is a type of light therapy, similar to a laser, that uses pulses of light with different wavelengths to penetrate the dermis without harming the epidermis, so it causes less damage to your skin.
The main difference between IPL and Laser, is that IPL releases pulses of light at multiple wavelengths, whereas laser releases light at one wavelength. By emitting light at various wavelengths, IPL effectively targets multiple levels of pigmentation. The light emitted is absorbed by the pigmentation of the affected area, which then heats up momentarily, breaking the pigmentation down into particles that can be absorbed by the body, or brought to the surface and sloughed away following your treatment.

For these reasons, IPL is a great technique for treating:
- age spots
- sun damage
- spider veins
- broken blood vessels on your face
- hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, or bikini line

How Does IPL Photofacial Work?
IPL uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin. When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the thing you’re being treated for. Unlike lasers, an IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light. It can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time.
After IPL, you may look younger because your skin tone is more even. And since the light doesn’t hurt other tissue, you can get better quickly.
