IPL: What You Should Know

Smiling woman

The field of dermatology and skin care treatment has seen incredible advances in recent years. People who have struggled with skin conditions without relief for years – or their entire lives – suddenly have options to pursue. But sometimes those options can be confusing. What is IPL, how could it help your skin and is it the right solution for you? Let’s find your answers.

What is IPL?

IPL is a quick 30-minute procedure during which broad wavelength light is used to penetrate the skin. It is not a laser. As a result of this light exposure, collagen and blood vessels below the surface of the skin constrict. This reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, while also reducing redness and uneven tone.

Clients have turned to IPL to help with everything from reducing the signs of ageing and improving skin texture to relieving Rosacea, evening pigmentation and dispelling broken capillaries and veins.

A revolutionary technique, IPL can be used to treat multiple conditions – at the same time. This is remarkable for people struggling with different complaints; it is time-saving, efficient and, most importantly, effective. Pain and downtime are minimised; results are maximised.

Does IPL Work for Hair Removal?

IPL is often confused with laser treatments. No, IPL is not indicated for hair removal, but laser techniques are remarkably effective. Here, highly concentrated light is directed to the unwanted hair follicles. This essentially destroys them.

Remember, IPL affects the blood vessels and collagen stores under the skin. Laser hair removal targets the follicles, making it a much more effective option if your goal is to remove undesirable hair.

IPL and laser technology can each be effective; the right choice for you depends on your individual goals. If you need more information, do not hesitate to contact us. Medical and scientific advances make your goal of healthy, beautiful skin more achievable than ever.
