Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Laser
Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, skin rejuvenation uses high-energy pulses of light to provide long-lasting results for the skin's appearance. It is also known as IPL photorejuvenation, photofacial, photoepilation or pulsed light therapy. An IPL skin rejuvenation offers a non-abrasive and noninvasive treatment option for many skin conditions.
What Conditions Does IPL Treat?

In addition, they have been used to effectively reduce the appearance of:
- Large pores
- Mild acne scars
- Dark circles around the eyes
- Fine lines around the eyes and mouth

What Kinds Of Results Can I Expect From IPL Treatments?
IPL skin rejuvenation, collagen stimulation and photoepilation improve skin texture and appearance as well as remove hair from any area of the body without damaging nearby tissue. Hair, spider veins or pigmented regions on the skin surface selectively absorb the pulses of light, shrinking or fading after treatment; collagen tightens, smoothing the skin. IPL treatments also stimulate the production of collagen, which plumps skin cells and gives a more youthful look.
