3 Benefits Of IPL Treatments

By October 24, 2022 No Comments
IPL—or intense pulsed light—treatment is one of the oldest light-based skin procedures available. While newer lasers have replaced it for certain applications such as laser hair removal, IPL still remains a frontline treatment for many ailments and concerns. Let’s look at three of the benefits of IPL treatments.

#1: Reduces Redness From Rosacea

Rosacea is a type of benign redness and warmth on the cheeks and occasionally other parts of the face. There often is not one identifiable cause and due to this, it can be frustratingly difficult to treat. IPL is known to significantly reduce rosacea redness as well as flare-ups. However, it is not a cure and touch-up treatments are necessary to help maintain results.

#2: Targets Unwanted Red & Brown Spots

Most lasers emit one wavelength at a time to address a specific concern. An IPL laser is a form of light treatment known as broadband light which emits more than one wavelength. This allows IPL to treat two colors of discoloration of the skin—red and brown. Thus, it is one of the most effective treatments for sun damage.

#3: Treats Spider Veins

Spider veins can become visible for a variety of reasons including aging, sun damage, and general thinning of the skin. Red spider veins respond well to IPL treatment and the treated veins should not become visible again. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
