Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL Laser Treatment Philadelphia PA, Wayne, PA
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) has become the single most popular light devices in use today, and it is very effective on most areas of the face and body and helps to reduce profuse redness from Rosacea and broken capillaries as well as pigment irregularities from old sun damage.
Results can easily parallel those of “true lasers” for many indications. Most IPL systems emit light with a range of wavelengths, anywhere from 500 nm to 1,200 nm. With this range of wavelengths, water, melanin and hemoglobin all act as possible chromophores in the skin, which means we can address skin conditions such as: solar lentigo; telangiectasia; Rosacea; fine lines; dyschromia; and discoloration left from acne scarring. The treatment takes about 15 – 35 minutes. It feels similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin; most people need between two to four treatments to get the best result.
