Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment involves using technology to eliminate the presence of age spots and perform various skin treatments. Used by a countless number of dermatologists, IPL treatment is a breakthrough in modern skin care treatment. Not only is IPL treatment used to treat areas of age, sun damage, and skin pigmentation, this treatment is also instrumental in alleviating many various skin diseases and conditions.

If you are interested in learning more about IPL treatment, read on to receive a glimpse of how a standard procedure is carried out.

How Does IPL Treatment Work?


IPL treatment involves a 30-minute procedure in which a patient absorbs intense light that penetrates deep within the skin to effectively reduce age lines and redlines. Specifically, once the light makes contact with the skin, a process known as photorejuvenation happens that causes blood vessels and collagen under the epidermis to compress. As a result, the skin becomes fresh and appears clear from any noticeable skin blemishes within a short period of time.

Types of IPL Treatments

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a versatile cosmetic dermatology treatment used to address various skin concerns by using broad-spectrum light to target different chromophores in the skin. Here’s a summary and a bullet list detailing how IPL is used to treat specific conditions such as rosacea, broken facial capillaries, acne, age spots, and through photofacials:


  • Reduction of redness: IPL helps in diminishing the appearance of persistent redness and flushing associated with rosacea.
  • Decrease in inflammation: The light therapy can reduce inflammation and the number of rosacea flare-ups.
  • Improvement in skin texture: Regular treatments can smooth out the skin texture, reducing the roughness caused by rosacea.


Broken Facial Capillaries:

  • Targeted treatment: IPL effectively targets and diminishes broken capillaries and spider veins by heating and destroying the affected blood vessels.
  • Restoration of skin tone: Helps in restoring a more uniform skin tone by reducing the visible red streaks.
  • Minimal downtime: The procedure involves minimal downtime, making it a convenient option for facial rejuvenation.


Acne Solutions:

  • Reduction in acne outbreaks: IPL can reduce oil production and destroy acne-causing bacteria, leading to fewer breakouts.
  • Decrease in inflammation: Helps in reducing the inflammation associated with acne, thereby diminishing the appearance of red and swollen areas.
  • Promotion of healing: Accelerates the healing process of the skin, reducing the likelihood of scarring.


Age Spots:

  • Pigment correction: Specifically targets darker pigmentations like age spots, sunspots, and freckles, helping to fade their appearance.
  • Skin rejuvenation: Encourages the production of collagen and promotes a more even skin tone.
  • Enhanced skin appearance: Makes the skin appear more youthful and radiant by reducing visible signs of aging.



  • Overall rejuvenation: Uses IPL to treat multiple skin issues simultaneously, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation.
  • Improvement in skin texture and tone: Enhances the smoothness and evenness of the complexion.
  • Long-lasting results: With a series of treatments, photofacial benefits can be long-lasting, improving skin health and appearance.


These IPL treatments offer a non-invasive solution to improve skin appearance and health, addressing multiple concerns with minimal downtime.
