ntense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment at SF Aesthetic Medspa is a revolutionary non-invasive therapy designed to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of your skin. Utilizing broad-spectrum light, IPL targets various skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, rosacea, and broken capillaries, as well as helps in hair reduction. The treatment works by emitting pulses of light that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by either the pigment or blood vessels, depending on the treatment target. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, promoting the production of collagen and resulting in clearer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Our IPL treatments are tailored to suit your individual skin type and concerns, ensuring optimal results with minimal discomfort.
During IPL treatment, you will feel a light snap or warm sensation as the pulses of light are applied to your skin. The session typically lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Most clients experience minimal discomfort during IPL treatment. A cooling gel or device is often used to minimize any discomfort.
The number of IPL sessions required varies depending on the individual’s skin condition and desired results. Typically, a series of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended for optimal outcomes.
IPL is effective in treating sun damage, age spots, freckles, rosacea, broken capillaries, and hair reduction. It can also improve overall skin texture and tone.
There is no significant recovery time required after an IPL session. You may notice some redness or mild swelling, but these symptoms usually subside within a few hours to a day.
