When Should IPL (intense pulsed light) Treatment be Used?

When Should IPL (intense pulsed light) Treatment be Used?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) known for rosacea treatment is a non-ablative and non invasive treatment that uses high intensity pulses with visible light in order to improve the appearance of different problems found on the skin like:

  • Vascular Lesions such as red thread veins on legs, rosacea, rosy checks, broken facial veins, port wine stains, and spider angiomas

  • Age and freckle marks

  • Wrinkles and facial lines

  • Removal of dark hair

IPL system works on the same principle like lasers since the light energy is absorbed in certain target cells within the skin. The light energy is converted into heat and it will cause damage to certain targeted places. IPL system is different from laser since it may deliver many colors or wavelengths in each pulse of light and not just one wavelength. Many IPL systems use filters in order to refine energy output while treating certain areas. This improves penetration without the need to use excessive energy level and it enables to target specific chromophores which are skin components that absorb the light.

There are different types of IPL machines and each one has been designed to focus on specific problems areas in a unique ways. Before the procedure, the specialist will explain the entire process to you and will define clearly the expectation you should have from the treatment. A proper diagnosis is essential before you begin your procedure.

IPL treatment is normally straightforward and it is done by a technician who has been trained properly with experience in IPL therapy. Here are a few things to keep in mind regarding IPL:

  • You should avoid sun exposure before or after the treatment

  • Anesthetics sometime can be applied at the place, but it is not always required

  • Cold gel is used on the area before the treatment starts

  • The smooth glassy surface of the IPL treatment head is applied on the skin and it delivers precise pulses of light at the area that has to be treated
