Intense Pulsed Light Skin Treatment
As you get older, you may start to notice spots, broken blood vessels, wrinkles and other skin blemishes beginning to form, particularly on your face, forearms and other areas often exposed to the sun. Intense pulsed light (IPL) technology may the solution you’ve been looking for.
IPL treatments can be used to remove age spots, diminish broken capillaries and skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation, treat rosacea and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, creating a more youthful skin appearance. Our practice uses an IPL system manufactured by Lumenis®, a global leader in laser and light-based technologies for aesthetic uses. We have recently upgraded our IPL system to the Lumenis® M22 IPL so that we may offer the latest, improved technology for our patients. The new system provides faster, gentler treatments, and noticeable results!
Many patients appreciate that these skin treatments can be performed quickly in our Glens Falls office, and require no downtime. In addition, skin rejuvenation treatments are very safe when administered by a properly-trained professional. We will tailor your treatment based on the areas you would like to improve and the type of skin conditions that require treatment.
What Can Intense Pulsed Light Skin Treatment Do For You?
IPL skin treatments:
- Provide visible improvement for pigmentation, age/sun spots, broken capillaries and overall skin appearance.
- Treat rosacea (redness on the nose, forehead, and cheeks)
- Remove skin imperfections and stimulates collagen and elastic fiber production.
- Are considered a gentle, fast “lunch-time” treatment with little to no downtime
- Can improve minor imperfections in as few as 1-2 treatments with optimal results found with 3-6 treatments.
Your IPL Treatment: What to Expect
We perform IPL skin treatments on the face, neck, hands, chest or any other area that can benefit from improvement. To ensure the utmost comfort, a cold coupling gel is applied to the treatment area. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance. After treatment, patients can enjoy a more youthful skin appearance.
