Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

What Can IPL Treat?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can rejuvenate your skin, addressing various pigmentation concerns. IPL treatments are effective for:

  1. Freckles

  2. Rosacea

  3. Spider veins

  4. Brown or red spots

  5. Sun damage or age spots

  6. Acne

  7. Scars

  8. Fine lines and wrinkles

While IPL treatments are commonly sought for facial imperfections, they can also be applied to areas like the neck, chest, shoulders, hands, or any regions with dark spots. Additionally, for those seeking permanent hair removal, the Medi Next Advanced IPL Laser System offers an efficient solution for treating various facial and body areas.

How Does IPL Work?

IPL treatments deliver rapid bursts of high-intensity light into your skin. Melanin, the pigments in your skin, absorb this light, converting it into heat. This process destroys melanin-producing cells, causing them to disintegrate.

Over time, the broken-down pigmented lesions rise to the surface of your skin and flake away. This leaves behind a fresh, healthier layer of skin that appears lighter and more radiant.

 

Does IPL Cause Discomfort?

While some skin rejuvenation or permanent hair removal procedures can be uncomfortable, the innovative technology of the Medi Next Advanced IPL Laser System ensures minimal to no discomfort during your photofacial treatment.

IPL therapy features a specially designed cooling tip that provides soothing relief with each light burst, making your session virtually painless. Moreover, it covers large areas with quick repetitions of light bursts, reducing your overall treatment time and eliminating the need for a lengthy, painful procedure.

Is There Downtime After IPL?

Following your IPL session at Advanced Wellness Center, you may experience mild redness or puffiness, but significant downtime is not expected. These minor side effects typically diminish within a few hours. You can safely reapply makeup, moisturizers, or other daily skincare products immediately after the treatment.

Since your skin may be more sensitive to the sun post-IPL, it's advisable to wear sunscreen daily and minimize sun exposure for at least a week to prevent skin damage.

To learn more about the benefits of these innovative treatments, schedule an IPL consultation either online or over the phone. Keep in mind that individual results may vary.
