Intense Pulsed Light Denver (IPL)

What is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment?Intense Pulsed Light Denver

Pulsed light devices deliver energy to target and destroy vascular and pigmented lesions associated with acne, spider veins, facial vesssels, rosacea, sun damage, age spots and other benign skin blemishes. During the treatment, light energy is delivered to the skin through a series of pulses.Using the principle of selective photothermolysis, these treatments target different chromophores in the skin, which selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and produce the desired response.

What types of Skin Conditions are Treated with Intense Pulsed Light? 

Intense Pulsed Light Denver

IPL for Acne and Rosacea

Acne and Rosacea

Acne IPL treatments with Palomar®technology target and destroy the skin bacteria responsible for acne to help prevent future breakouts from occurring on faces, chests and backs.  To treat acne scars, we use pulses of laser light to coagulate scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients’ skin.  Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and clients feel little to no pain.

Facial Blood Vessels 

The broken blood vessels that occur so frequently on the face, especially the nose and cheeks, can now be cleared using intensed pulsed light. This advanced IPL allows the removal of these vessels without bruising or crusting at the treatment sites. There is a transient pinkness that develops in the treated area that may last 1- 1 ½ hours. Make-up can be immediately applied after the treatment if desired. Usually 2 to 3 treatment sessions are needed depending on the number of blood vessels present.

The unsightly flat brown spots that occur frequently in sun-exposed areas, e.g. the face and hands, can be removed using the Intense Pulse Light treatments.  After treatment, the skin in the areas treated will become dark and peel off in 7-10 days.

The number of treatments required depends on:

  • individual skin tone and tolerance
  • extent of acne, pigmented or vascular lesions
  • severity of sun damage

Typically a minimum of three treatments are performed at monthly intervals for optimal results. You may require follow up depending on your individual skin condition.

What Should I Expect After Treatment?

Minimal recovery and downtime are required with Intense Pulsed Light. Your face may be mildly red for several hours after the procedure but will then subside. Pigmented areas on your skin will become darker initially, and then flake off in one to two weeks.

You will need to avoid the sun as much as possible before and after the treatment. Sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 should be utilized daily, especially after treatment.
