Regular exposure to the sun can damage your skin and provoke common skin imperfections such as freckles, sunspots, and pigmentation. To help repair this damage, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments work to rejuvenate your skin and reduce common skin imperfections.
The laser pulses through the skin’s surface to a specific area in the tissue beneath the skin. IPL for pigmentation works by breaking the pigment down into smaller pieces, then rising to the skin’s surface to flake away as the body’s natural healing process.
As well as freckles, sunspots, and pigmentation, IPL is also a useful treatment for acne, broken capillaries, and melasma. IPL stimulates the production of collagen, a protein in our body that provides structure to our skin. As we age, the production of collagen slows down and becomes less effective. By promoting the production of collagen, IPL treatments help to keep our skin youthful and even looking.
