What Does Intense Pulsed Light Do?

If you are one of the many people in Denver struggling with dull, lifeless, or imperfect skin that’s showing the visible signs of age, sun damage, hyperpigmentation or rosacea, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments can help you look refreshed and rejuvenated. IPL treatments in Denver require minimal downtime and are non-invasive, so they are the perfect pick-me-up all year long.

What is Intense Pulsed Light?

Intense Pulsed Light or IPL treatments deliver light of varying wavelengths in quick bursts directly to targeted areas. This light is carefully calibrated to a specific intensity so that it penetrates the skin deeply. Intense Pulsed Light treatments are non-invasive and non-ablative, so there’s virtually no downtime required.

How Does IPL Work?

Intense Pulsed Light penetrates to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis). The pigment cells in your skin then absorb the light’s energy and convert that into heat, which destroys unwanted pigment to clear up your skin. The unique wavelengths of light effectively break up the redness, capillaries, sun spots, and other kinds of pigmentation in areas exposed to the treatment. Typically, a series of up to three treatments are necessary for best results. Clients who receive IPL treatments enjoy improved skin tone, fewer wrinkles, and reduced pigmentation and redness.

Who is a Good Candidate for IPL?

IPL treatments work on clients with lighter skin tones (Skin Types, I-III). Unfortunately, Skin Types IV-VI are not candidates for Intense Pulsed Light treatments. Clients with lighter skin without sun exposure typically experience the most significant improvement in the resolution of dark spots, vascular lesions, sun damage, and broken capillaries.

Intense Pulsed Light treatments can help alleviate reddened skin and broken blood vessels common in rosacea, as well as reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, whether that’s from sun damage or acne scarring. IPL treatments in Denver can be used beyond your face to treat areas like your neck, decollete, and hands. These treatments can combine with custom skincare products for more significant improvements to your skin’s appearance, texture, and tone. A series of treatments are recommended, but most clients see improvement after a single session.
