What is Intense Pulsed Light?

IPL treatments use light to rejuvenate the skin without harming the surface of the skin. These treatments provide a non-invasive therapy that leads to healthier looking skin by erasing unwanted pigmentation, excessive redness, small broken blood vessels, and reducing pore size. The additional color in the skin (melanin in brown areas or blood cells in red areas) absorbs the light energy, which damages the structures and causes them to eventually be absorbed by the body. The IPL therapy can be used on any area of the body to erase the signs of sun damage.
