With a growing emphasis on non-invasive facial rejuvenation, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) combines light and heat in varying wavelengths to restore and treat damaged skin. From sun-induced changes to pigmentation, rosacea, age spots and broken blood vessels, Johns Hopkins Medicine explains that IPL treatment is tailored to an individual patient’s skin.
To better understand how IPL treatment improves the appearance and quality of skin, consider the skin’s primary structural component—collagen. Akin to a “scaffold” for the skin, collagen is the protein that gives youthful skin its supple, soft and smooth appearance. However, with age and exposure to the sun, collagen begins to break down. It’s during this time that individuals notice the presence of fine lines and wrinkles, along with a dull skin tone.
Intense Pulsed Light treatment targets the deeper tissues of the skin, signaling the production of collagen. Skin improvement is gradual, yet natural, and the body works to eliminate the damaged tissues and recreate healthier skin structures. For redness and broken blood vessels, IPL treatment resolves the look of damaged veins for a clearer, fresh appearance.
Am I A Candidate For IPL Treatment?
While IPL treatment is a versatile technology that is personalized to treat various skin conditions, it is not the optimal choice for everyone. Thus, it is important to discuss the benefits of IPL with a trusted facial plastic surgeon.
Even so, fair-skinned individuals with good skin elasticity seem to experience the greatest results. Moreover, those with skin problems such as sun damage, fine lines/wrinkles, spider veins, enlarged pores and rosacea also benefit from treatment.
Individuals with realistic expectations and a willingness to commit to their personal treatment cycle also experience great results.
