IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments have become extremely common among both cosmetic and medical practitioners for a range of skin concerns. At Bionuu in Littleton, we use a medical-grade IPL device with a higher strength than esthetician-grade IPL treatment. This creates more evident improvement to the skin’s tone or texture for a smooth, bright, and youthful complexion.
How Does IPL Treatment Work?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It’s a laser treatment that emits a range of light wavelengths – not just one like other types of laser treatment. This broad spectrum light is spread across the skin instead of honing in on a limited area, targeting damaged skin tissue to spur collagen production and improve hyperpigmentation.
IPL treatment works by initiating the body’s natural healing process. When the broad spectrum light reaches the second layer of the skin, it heats the damaged skin cells, prompting new, healthy cells to replace them.
Unfortunately, skin never stops aging, so we recommend that people consistently receive IPL treatments to maintain the skin’s appearance. Multiple IPL treatments may also be needed to fully repair damaged areas of the skin.
What Can IPL Treatment Be Used For?
IPL treatment can be used on the face, neck, hands and chest. It can help reduce the appearance of:
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Brown pigmentation
- Fine wrinkles
