IPL Photorejuvenation can treat a variety of benign skin conditions. The broad spectrum of light used in IPL Photorejuvenation treatments is absorbed by the target tissue and is then removed by the body’s natural processes, providing dramatic improvements in the appearance of age spots, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, rosacea, and more.

What Is IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL Photorejuvenation is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots, most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries. IPL Photorejuvenation can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and high satisfaction.
How Does It Work?
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece through a small, smooth, transparent light guide which is gently placed over your skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture and a more youthful appearance.
Where on the Body Can IPL Photorejuvenation Be Used?
IPL Photorejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest, and hands.
What Is an IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment Like?
IPL Photorejuvenation is typically performed in a physician’s office. First, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. The pulses of light are applied to your face, and you may feel a slight stinging. Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. Treatment is generally administrated in a series of 4 to 6 sessions, and you will see gradual improvement that yields excellent long term results with very low risk and very minimal down time.
Who Can Get an IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment?
Most people can safely receive an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment. However, always consult with your physician to find out if IPL is right for you. Be sure to also ask your physician about all the other benefits of IPL treatments!
