Intense Pulsed Light for Skin Rejuvenation

IPL has gained popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness in addressing various skin concerns and improving overall skin health.

At Aker Kasten Eye Center, we are excited to offer intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, an innovative and popular treatment for skin rejuvenation.

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a non-invasive and gentle treatment that uses high-intensity light pulses to improve the appearance and health of your skin. IPL is highly versatile and can be used to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including unwanted pigmentation, fine lines, redness, and uneven skin texture.

The IPL device works by emitting different wavelengths of light that can be customized to target specific areas of your skin. When the light reaches your skin, it is absorbed by pigments and structures within the skin, creating a warming sensation and stimulating your body’s natural healing processes.

How Does IPL Help with Skin Rejuvenation?

IPL helps rejuvenate the skin by addressing various skin concerns through the targeted delivery of light energy. The light energy emitted by IPL can help:

Reduce Pigmentation

IPL can effectively reduce unwanted pigmentation, such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles, by targeting and breaking down the excess melanin in the skin.

Stimulate Collagen Production

The heat generated by IPL can stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that gives skin its firmness and elasticity. This can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leading to a more youthful complexion.

Improve Skin Texture

By promoting cell turnover and collagen production, IPL can help improve overall skin texture, leaving you with smoother, more even-toned skin.

Minimize Pores and Reduce Redness

IPL can help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and reduce redness caused by broken capillaries or mild rosacea.

If you are interested in achieving a more youthful, radiant complexion, IPL treatment may be right for you. To determine if IPL is the best option for your skin concerns, schedule a consultation with our skilled specialist, Felicia Kennicott, at Aker Kasten Eye Center in Boca Raton, Florida.

What Happens During an IPL Session?

During an IPL session, you will be comfortably seated in a reclining chair. Your skin will be cleansed, and a cool gel will be applied to the treatment area to ensure comfort and optimal light transmission.

The IPL device will be gently pressed against your skin, focusing on the areas of concern. You may feel a warming sensation or hear a slight snapping sound as the light pulses are delivered. Consistent sun protection after treatment is recommended.

The entire session typically takes about thirty to forty-five minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Once the treatment is over, you will be able to return home the same day. The IPL treatment requires minimal downtime, so you can get back to most of your activities within a few days.

How Long Do The Results of an IPL Treatment Last?

The results of IPL treatment for skin rejuvenation can vary from person to person. Many patients notice an improvement in their skin’s appearance within a week to ten days after the initial treatment.

For optimal and long-lasting results, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is usually recommended. The effects of IPL can last several months to a year or more, depending on your skin’s response and the specific concerns being addressed.

To keep your skin looking its best after IPL, you may need to return for touch-up treatments periodically. If you’re looking to improve the overall appearance and health of your skin, intense pulsed light therapy may be an excellent treatment option.
