Intense Pulsed Light, or photo rejuvenation, is a device that emits different wavelengths of light (not just one wavelength like a laser) and therefore can treat a more broad range of skin issues. The IPL device was created to treat combinations of skin issues, versus lasers treat just one skin target. The definition of an IPL can help you better understand why the IPL can best treat your combination of skin concerns. A series of four to six IPL treatments can significantly reduce facial redness. The device is scanned over the entire area. The skin is mildly more red for only a few hours. There is no break in the skin, no wound care required, and no need to change your regular daily schedule or activities. Regular treatments at varying intervals help maintain your results. The IPL treatments may remove some of the brown sun damage spots as well as the redness.
