Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Technology
Intense pulsed light (IPL) technology, also known as photo-facial rejuvenation, is commonly applied to remove unwanted hair, treat broken blood vessels and diminish spider veins.

Similar to laser light therapy, intense pulsed light targets the skin cells beneath the surface, without hurting the upper layers of the skin or surrounding tissues, and encourages the production of new collagen. As a result, wrinkles are diminished, fine lines are less visible and the skin becomes tighter and smoother.
IPL is a safe and non-invasive anti-aging treatment. It works effectively to treat fine lines and wrinkles, age spots caused by sun damage, pigment lesions and some severe skin disorders - such as rosacea. IPL also treats a wide range of facial blemishes and improves skin's tone and texture.
IPL is a painless low risk treatment. Physicians choose certain wave lengths instead of a full spectrum of light depending on the skin's depth of damage. Usually, an IPL session only takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. For severely damaged skin, dermatologists often recommend a combination of IPL and laser light therapy to achieve the clearest and smoothest results.
