Most patients have more than one concern regarding their skin. They may be dealing with both acne and the signs of aging. They may have poor texture of the skin as well as facial redness, combined with brown spots and broken capillaries. Other patients may struggle with large pores and acne scars. Instead of undergoing treatments for each specific problem, patients can enjoy services such as intense pulsed light treatments that can address a large area of skin and improve a number of imperfections for a more generalized enhancement.
Intense pulsed light, sometimes referred to as IPL, is a treatment in which a special device is used to emit pulses of light into the skin to rejuvenate it. It is different from laser therapies and is often much less invasive. It can be performed regularly for patients to maintain beautiful skin over time. Many patients schedule appointments monthly for several months until they have achieved the optimum results.
The primary benefit of intense pulsed light is that it can treat a number of conditions at once. It is also affordable, non-invasive and effective on many areas of the body. The sky is the limit with what intense pulsed light treatments can achieve.
