A lifetime of exposure to the sun can leave your skin with spots, uneven pigmentation, redness, and flushing. IPL therapy can simultaneously tighten your skin while also clearing up these other visible signs of aging.
Located in Windermere, Spa Blue’s goal is to provide our patients with quality aesthetic treatments – that’s why we’re proud to offer IPL therapy. If you’re interested in more information about IPL or would like to schedule your complimentary consultation appointment, contact us today.
What is IPL Therapy?
Intense pulsed light therapy, or IPL, is an aesthetic treatment that uses broad-spectrum light to correct brown spots, age spots, uneven pigmentation, redness, flushing, and loose skin. At Spa Blue, we exclusively use the Laser 360 system. This system features no redness, no side effects, and no downtime.
How Does it Work?
IPL therapy works by using a flashgun to deliver intense, broad-spectrum light to the skin. The range of this spectrum is specially chosen to target chromophores that are responsible for skin discoloration. The light is absorbed by theses structures, causing them to rupture, die, and be reabsorbed by the body.
While IPL is similar to traditional laser treatments in that it uses light and heat to destroy harmful structures in the skin, IPL uses a spectrum of wavelengths while lasers use just one. This spectrum allows it to treat several different sources of skin discoloration at once. Our IPL therapy treatments are administered through the Laser 360 system. This system combines both laser and light treatments to fully customize treatments to meet each patient’s unique needs.
What can be Expected During Treatment?
IPL therapy is safe, comfortable, and effective. Each treatment takes somewhere between 30-60 minutes. Several treatments are recommended to get optimal results. We typically recommend seven treatments total, but it’s possible that you will need more or fewer treatments depending upon your aesthetic goals and the current condition of your skin. Each treatment should be received within 10-14 days of the last treatment. Improvement from these sessions can be seen gradually over time.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Individuals who are interested in correcting brown spots, age spots, uneven pigmentation, redness, flushing, or loose skin are good candidates for IPL therapy. Before receiving treatment, a member of our trained medical staff will take into account the current condition of your skin, aesthetic goals, and medical history in order to decide if this therapy is right for you.
