Laser IPL Q&A

What is laser IPL?

Laser IPL is a form of light therapy that uses the power of light to affect the deeper layers of your skin. 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses broadband light to treat skin issues. Laser treatment uses a single beam to target problems. When both are combined, you have a powerful treatment that works gently.

The light reaches into your epidermis, which is your skin’s topmost layer. Your dermis is your skin’s first underlayer, which absorbs the light and then continues to get warmer. The warmth begins to activate your internal healing process, which promotes new skin cell growth, collagen, and elastin.

What can laser IPL treatments do for my skin?

You can use laser IPL treatments for any kind of general skin treatment, including:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Broken capillaries
  • Spider veins
  • Large pores
  • Skin redness
  • Patchy skin texture
  • Acne
  • Rosace

When you meet with your practitioner at Wellness Med Art, they offer guidance on how to treat your skin condition with laser IPL treatments.

How do I prepare for laser IPL treatments?

Before your treatment, be sure to avoid exposure to the sun for at least two weeks. Your professional might also recommend that you abstain from certain medications or antibiotics that can trigger photosensitivity.

Your practitioner discusses your preparation guidelines before your treatment to ensure you arrive ready for your procedure.

What does it feel like to have laser IPL treatments?

You don’t have to be concerned about pain when it comes to your treatment. At most, as the lightwaves enter your skin, you might feel a snapping sensation similar to that of a pulsating rubber band. If you feel any discomfort, the pain dissipates quickly, which makes it entirely tolerable.

How many laser IPL treatments might I need to see results?

You can see the results of laser IPL after just one treatment. However, you might want to consider a series of treatments for maximum effect. When you space your treatments a month apart, you allow time for cellular turnover, which promotes excellent results.
