Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment has gained a reputation as one of the safest and most convenient ways to keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. If you have been dealing with skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage or fine lines and wrinkles, you could benefit from IPL treatment provided at MiKO Medspa. Call us today to book your first appointment and learn everything this treatment can do for you.
How Does IPL Work?
While it is light-based, IPL is different from laser treatment. Instead, the process consists of delivering pulses of light to the skin, which can result in many different therapeutic benefits. Visible sun damage, enlarged pores, fine lines and red, splotchy skin can all be addressed with IPL therapy.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment with IPL?
IPL is a gentle and completely non-invasive treatment, which makes it a safe option for just about anyone. The best candidates include those who have begun to experience the noticeable effects of sun damage such as fine lines and dark spots. Patients who struggle with persistent skin redness can also benefit greatly from this treatment. If you are unsure whether IPL therapy is right for you, our specialist will provide you with more information during your consultation. We will discuss your skin concerns with you and help you find out if this is the best course of action for your needs.
What to Expect During Treatment
IPL therapy is a comfortable, non-invasive treatment that can typically be completed in under an hour. Our provider will pass a handheld device over your skin, delivering concentrated pulses of light to the area to be treated.
You will likely need more than one treatment session to achieve desired results. The exact number of treatments you will need will depend on the type and severity of the skin concerns you are looking to address, which we will discuss with you during your consultation.
The Benefits of IPL
IPL therapy comes with a number of benefits, including:
- Little to no downtime
- Comfortable, non-invasive treatment
- No anesthesia
Each treatment session can also be completed in under an hour, making it a perfect treatment option for those who don’t have much time to set aside. Patients regularly come in for their sessions during their lunch break, after which they can go right back to their daily routine.
