Laern more about Radiofrequency Microneedling
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a non-invasive treatment used by medical practitioners to perform treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. It can be used on any part of the body. It is similar to laser treatment but a laser focuses on just one wavelength of light while IPL releases light flashes of many different wavelengths. The light from IPL is less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin than a laser.
What does the procedure feel like?
An anesthetic cream applied one hour before the procedure numbs the surface of the skin to help make the treatment more comfortable. You may feel a tingling feeling. Your physician may offer additional measures to increase your comfort.
How long will the treatment take?
Depending on the size of the area treated, the procedure itself may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. Your physician may require that you arrive an hour before your procedure for administration of an anesthetic cream. This patient had her forehead skin treated in about 25 minutes. Note the change in the appearance of her eyes.
When will I see results?
Full results are seen three to six months after treatment.
When can I return to my normal activities?
You may return to your normal activities immediately, as there is usually no “downtime”. Minimal redness is seen in some patients but it usually disappears shortly after treatment. Heat-related complications can occur but are uncommon. There is no special care needed after treatment. As a part of good skin care, sunscreen is recommended.
How many treatments will I need?
A single treatment has produced good results* in a significant number of patients. However, your doctor will assess the number and frequency of treatments required to achieve optimal results for your skin.
