IPL stands for intense pulsed light, a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment. It is usually used in the treatment of visible signs of skin aging such as freckles, redness, and wrinkles. This technology is also used to treat acne, discolouration, and other skin problems.

IPL Photorejuvenation can improve skin quality

Your skin quality can be improved with several IPL treatments. The light itself is produced in a broad spectrum of wavelengths and is not the same as a laser. It is an intensified form of artificial light that can be used at different depths. This allows your cosmetic surgeon to treat a wide range of skin conditions.

How does IPL work?

IPL makes use of broad-spectrum light particles. This allows it to target several skin layers. The light energy then heats the target area which elicits a natural healing response. As the light flashes, collagen production is significantly increased. Collagen is an integral part of the skin rejuvenation process. This is because collagen helps maintain the structure of your skin. As a result, the damaged tissues are removed and are replaced with new, healthy skin cells.

For abnormal blood vessels, IPL heats them until they are completely destroyed. Over time, your body eliminates the damaged particles, resulting in smoother skin. For unwanted hair, IPL heats the hair follicles until they are destroyed. This in turn prevents hair regrowth.

IPL or laser treatment?

We recommend IPL for the treatment of skin conditions that involve the outer layer of your skin. Lasers are generally more effective at treating skin problems that affect the deeper layers of your skin. These include scarring, deep wrinkles, and deep skin discoloration. A laser is a constant stream of light while IPL is a rapidly flashing beam of light that is ‘pulsed’. Another difference between IPL and laser is their wavelength (colour of light). Lasers have only one wavelength while IPL has a wide range of wavelengths.

Are you a good candidate for an IPL treatment?

During your consultation, we will conduct a thorough patient assessment. This ensures that only suitable patients can have the procedure. In general, you are a good candidate for the treatment if:

  • You have birthmarks.
  • You have blotchy skin.
  • You have large skin pores.
  • You have realistic treatment goals.
  • You have rosacea (characterized by redness and visible blood vessels on your face).
  • You have skin discolorations caused by sun damage.
  • You have white, untanned skin.

How much does an IPL treatment cost?

The total costs of the treatment may vary. This will depend on several factors such as:

  • The medical facility or clinic
  • The number of treatments required
  • Your desired results
  • Your skin condition
  • Your surgeon’s fee
  • You have skin discolorations caused by sun damage.
  • You have white, untanned skin.

You should also keep in mind that your insurance may not cover the cost of this cosmetic treatment. During your consultation, we will give you a detailed estimate of the cost as well as payment options.
