Anti-aging Procedures.IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is used for a variety of treatments. For example, an IPL can be used for hair removal, acne, and more commonly for pigmentation problems such as dark spots and small veins. It works by using a bright light, with filters in front of it. These filters allow the effective light to shine through and treat the targeted area.
“This treatment method is different from a laser, in which the medical professional uses a single wavelength of light,” shares Emily Johnston, dermatology certified-Physician Assistant at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. IPL is very effective at treating pigmentation problems and has minimal downtime. Because it uses a broad spectrum of light, it focuses on what light will help to achieve the best results. Redness and age spots can be treated effectively, and it usually requires a series of treatments, similar to laser therapy.
