Three Skin Conditions Improved with IPL Therapy

Featured Image

IPL therapy, known as intense pulsed light therapy, is a versatile treatment that can improve various skin conditions, but it particularly shines when it comes to sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne. In this blog, we will examine IPL therapy and how it can help overcome these three skin conditions. With IPL therapy, your skin can experience a rejuvenation as it starts to heal, rebuild collagen, and even tone.

Do you suffer from acne, hyperpigmentation, or sun damage? If so, then you are familiar with the unsightly dark spots. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Xiaobin Li at Everest Medspa in Wayne or Havertown, PA. She will listen to your goals and examine your skin condition to determine if IPL therapy is the right choice for your needs. Dr. Li will answer any questions you might have about the treatment and let you know what kind of results you can expect after undergoing the noninvasive cosmetic procedure.

Conditions that respond to IPL therapy

Sun damage can cause unsightly brown spots, freckles, and an uneven skin tone. IPL therapy can target the melanin responsible for these pigmentation issues, break it up, and allow the body to remove it naturally. The result is a smoother, more even skin tone that looks radiant and healthy.

Hyperpigmentation, whether caused by sun exposure, acne scarring, or hormonal changes, can also benefit from IPL therapy. By targeting the pigmented areas and breaking down the excess melanin, IPL can improve the appearance of dark spots and patches and restore a more balanced complexion.

IPL therapy can also be an effective treatment for acne-prone skin. By targeting the bacteria responsible for acne and reducing inflammation, IPL can help prevent new breakouts and reduce the appearance of existing pimples. Additionally, IPL therapy can stimulate collagen production and help fade acne scars over time.

How is IPL therapy performed?

An IPL photofacial is considered a refreshing and rejuvenating treatment. It relies on high-frequency energy pulses, which spur your body’s healing response and produce collagen. Dr. Li uses the Harmony XL PRO technology to carry out IPL treatments.

How soon before my skin responds to IPL therapy?

You can start to notice slight improvement after your first treatment with the Harmony XL PRO IPL therapy. Usually, patients see a gradual fading of the dark spots, blemishes, and splotches. It takes about a month after your last treatment for optimal benefits to appear. Dr. Li will set up a customized treatment plan, which will usually involve several rounds of IPL therapy to gain the best possible results.

Occasionally, some people report redness, blisters, or swelling following IPL treatment, but the side effects will usually resolve within a few days. However, you should always wear sunscreen after IPL therapy because your skin will be very sun sensitive, and exposing the treated area to UV rays could impact your treatment results.
