Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments

Our LUCENT IPL device has the power to enhance your natural beauty and address common skin flaws such as pigmentation, sun damage, age spots, acne, bruises, rosacea, vascular lesions, and uneven skin tone while at the same time boosting collagen and elastin. Treatments are customized to the individual, and results include visible improvement in skin tone and texture, even complexion, and a youthful healthy glow.

What it treats

  • Acne
  • Signs of aging
  • Pigmentation & sun damage
  • Vascular lesions – redness, rosacea, spider veins, broken vessels

How it works

IPL technology uses broad-spectrum light to target specific chromophores in the skin, such as melanin or hemoglobin, and delivers energy at different wavelengths to address numerous aesthetic and dermatology needs. During an IPL treatment, pulses of light energy are delivered onto the skin and safely target the imperfections in the skin. A snapping sensation and warmth is felt with each pulse, which is typically very well tolerated. The treatment does not injure the surrounding skin, which means there is no down time.

After a Treatment

After treatment, patients leave with a mild red, flushed appearance, which resolves within a few hours. For pigmented skin, the treated pigmented area will darken, fade, and then flake off within 1 to 2 weeks. Patients report minimal discomfort with the procedure, and there is no recovery or downtime required. Your improved complexion will be visible within 1 to 3 weeks post treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

For optimal results, a series of 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart is recommended. Some individuals may require more treatments.

Who is a candidate?

  • Do you have brown pigment such as age or sun spots, or unwanted freckles?
