Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment

Rejuvenate Aging Skin with IPL Therapy in Redwood City

As we age, it’s natural to experience age spots, redness, spider veins, and rosacea. You may also notice acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, broken blood vessels, and other skin imperfections. IPL treatment, also called an IPL photofacial or photorejuvenation, can effectively and painlessly reverse many of your aesthetic concerns.

IPL treatments are most commonly used because it can:

  • Remove age spots
  • Diminish hyperpigmentation, such as birthmarks
  • Lighten and reduce freckles and rosacea
  • Improve skin texture by stimulating collagen
  • Reduce pore size and reduce acne
  • Treat skin flushing
  • Treat broken blood vessels
  • Tighten skin

What Is IPL Therapy?

“IPL” stands for intense pulsed light, and this treatment can effectively diminish many types of aesthetic skin concerns of the face and neck. A handheld device uses multiple light wavelengths in a safe, non-invasive technique that is tailored to your skin type. The intense yet gentle light beams treat your aesthetic skin concerns without damaging the surrounding tissues. The results are usually very striking and immediately apparent. During treatment, the face and/or neck is cleansed, and a cooling agent is applied to the area. The patient is given dark glasses to protect their eyes from the light. Once the procedure begins, the practitioner will use the IPL handpiece and gently apply it directly to the skin and light pulses are emitted. Most treatments take less than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Minimal risks are involved with IPL treatment, and temporary side effects include redness and darkening of pigmented areas. Usually, any side effects patients experience are mild and disappear very quickly. Patients may resume everyday activities once treatment is completed.

Results vary from one patient to the next, so a series of treatments may be needed to deliver optimal results. Most patients have 3 to 6 treatments spaced about one month apart between sessions. Many patients will return for maintenance treatments once or twice a year, thereafter.
