Patients who have a variety of issues with their skin may be unsure as to where to start. The skincare aisle at the local drugstore bombards patients with a wide range of products, though many of these are not suitable in providing effective results. When patients struggle with poor skin texture and tone, along with other concerns, they are encouraged to book a consultation visit with Dr. Shirley Olsen of Olsen Aesthetics to learn about IPL treatment for skin rejuvenation.
How does IPL work in improving the skin?
IPL, which stands for “intense pulsed light,” is a specialized laser treatment that is used on the facial skin to combat a wide range of problems. IPL photo rejuvenation may be used to address:
- Poor skin tone and texture
- Sun damage
- Sun spots/age spots
- Blood vessels
Without harming the surrounding skin, the IPL treatment can focus on the areas of concern. Intense pulsed light is emitted into the skin using a special, FDA-cleared handheld device. The doctor will administer the light across the skin to target specific issues.
What can I expect from my IPL skin rejuvenation treatment?
Patients rest in the treatment chair while the skin is cleansed to remove makeup and any debris on the skin. Then, the special IPL device is used along the skin to treat and target the problem area. The treatment itself takes less than 15 minutes. To achieve the best results, patients will need to schedule anywhere between two to three sessions spaced weeks apart. There is no downtime or recovery needed, so many of our patients come in during their lunch break to have the procedure performed and return to their day with little interruption. The results are seen over time as the skin rejuvenates, and patients will enjoy smoother, clearer skin. Many patients love the results so much that they regularly visit our practice for treatment sessions every few months to maintain their skin’s health and appearance.
