How does it work?
IPL uses gentle light and electric energies to restore skin to a more youthful state. IPL penetrates the skin, leaving the surface untouched and targeting problem areas at the very source. Infrared light source combined with bi-polar radio frequency gently heats the dermis and encourages your skin to produce more collage fibers and tighten existing collagen.
What kind of results can I expect?
You’ll see a combination of gradual lightening and improvement to pigmented spots and vascular imperfections, your skin’s texture will become visibly smoother and any lax skin in the jowl area, brows and cheeks will look firmer and uplifted.
How frequently do I need treatments?
Treatments are usually repeated every month for a total of 5 treatments. From there, you’d have 1 or 2 follow up treatments throughout the year to maintain the results.
Does it hurt?
The sensation is often described as a “hot pinch” or “snapping” feeling. But this sensation only lasts for a fraction of a second, so it’s easily tolerated. At other times, it will feel warm but completely tolerable.
Is it safe?
Yes! The safety of IPL and radio frequency are both well documented as pain-free and safe.
What happens after each treatment?
There’s often a temporary pinkness in the skin, but it lasts a very short time. Most people return to work or normal activities within a couple of hours after treatment. Brown spots may temporarily look darker, but that’s a normal part of the healing process before they become lighter.
Who should get this service?
Anyone who wants to reverse the signs of aging, or improve damage left from too much sun. If you’re prone to spider veins which can be more prominent if you have fair skin or other genetic factors IPL is also ideal.
