Intense Pulsed Light – IPL Treatment
Do you have skin irregularities due to sun damage, broken capillaries, rosacea or pigmentation? Intense pulsed light or IPL treatment may be the non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of these types of issues. IPL treatment uses light and heat to help the skin heal and rejuvenate. The intense pulsed light heats the skin, inducing the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps remove redness, shrink capillaries and lighten darker pigmentation. This addresses many common side effects of photoaging and sun damage, creating younger, more youthful skin.
Non-Invasive Skin Rejuvenation
This procedure is non-invasive and can be performed at Dr. Khosh’s office in as little as a half-hour. There is no downtime or recovery needed after the procedure, making it an ideal solution for those with busy schedules that do not have time for more invasive procedures. In most cases, the procedure is repeated four to six times over several weeks to get the best results.
IPL treatment can help restore an even skin tone that has been affected by sun damage, aging or other environmental issues. It is also effective to treat hyperpigmentation or redness of the skin in those with light to medium skin tones. IPL treatment can be used on the facial skin or any other area such as the neck, hands or body that has been affected by sun or other skin damage. The procedure is not painful, although a slight discomfort may be felt during the treatment. A topical numbing agent can be used for patients that have more than mild discomfort.
