IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is a technology similar to laser. IPL is a safe and effective light treatment that will revitalize and renew the skin, resulting in an even skin tone and more youthful appearance.
IPL is good for pigment (age spots) and small blood vessels. The advantage to IPL systems is that there is usually little to no downtime.
You should avoid sun exposure and tanning before and after the appointment. You should also discontinue the use of any blood thinners, prescription or herbal. Please let us know if you are unsure if your medication has blood thinning effects so we can advise.
Leg Vein Treatment
The key to success when treating vascular spots is to find the right wavelength of light for the particular skin tone. Not all your veins are blue, some may be reddish or even purple. Having the most recent technology is important to get the best results.
What to Expect?
An IPL treatment takes approximately 15-60 minutes depending on the area treated. IPL requires no needles or compression wrapping and there is no downtime. Patients may experience slight darkening of pigment before they lighten. The procedure itself is usually described as feeling like a rubber band being snapped on the skin.
You many experience temporary redness, itching, bruising and/or swelling in the treated area but these are not common occurrences.
It usually take 3-6 treatments to see a significant result and treatments can be spaced out every 3-4 weeks.
