Intense Pulse Light Therapy

What is IPL?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, aka photo facial, is a way to improve the color and texture of your skin without surgery. It can undo some visible damage caused by sun exposure — called photoaging. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands, or decollete. The combined bi-polar radio frequency and light energies of elo-s technology precisely and safely target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots, and age spots. Vascular lesions such as spider vessels and redness from rosacea are also lightened and gradually fade.

Preparing for your Treatment

Before your IPL procedure, your skin care specialist will examine your skin and let you know what to expect. Let them know if you have any skin conditions that might affect healing after your treatment, such as inflammatory acne or eczema.

Your skin care specialist may recommend that you avoid certain activities, medications, and other products for two weeks prior your procedure.

You should avoid

  • direct sunlight

  • tanning beds

  • waxing

  • chemical peels

  • collagen injections

  • drugs that increase your bleeding risk, such as aspirin (Ecotrin) and ibuprofen (Advil)

  • creams or other products that contain vitamin A, such as RetinA, or glycolic acid

How long do results last?

Typically, however, the results of an IPL photo facial will be apparent for six months to a year. We recommend maintenance treatments every six to 12 months to help prolong results.
