Let Us Undo Your Skin Damage
Intense Pulsed Light Treatments at our Harrisburg Office
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a way to improve the color and texture of the skin without surgery. It has the ability to undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure, rosacea, hyperpigmentation and other conditions. This type of skin damage usually occurs most on the face, neck, hands or chest, and IPL is capable of treating a number of skin issues for all ages.
What is Intense Pulsed Light?
Intense pulsed light, also known as photofacial, uses a device that delivers carefully targeted pulses of light energy to treat specific issues while boosting the overall condition of the skin.
By utilizing different settings, IPL can deliver energy into the skin, where it is then absorbed by areas of darker pigment, greatly reducing brown spots or even the redness from rosacea. It can also be used to treat the little red vessels or spider veins.
Simply put, IPL uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin. After IPL, your skin will have a more youthful glow because IPL helps to make skin tone more even. And since the light doesn’t hurt other tissue, recovery is a cinch. In fact, a patient can often have the procedure done in their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards.
Who is IPL for?
The treatment sessions are effective, safe and quick, which make them a sought-after option for individuals who want to reduce redness and the signs of aging without surgery or injections.
What are the Expected Results from Intense Pulsed Light Treatments?
Though it is not a surgical procedure, IPL is still a treatment that requires education so patients can be informed of its unique features. Prior to your procedure you will sit with Dr. Jatto so she can clearly define your expectations of the treatment. By assessing your unique skin goals, she will be able to tell you whether or not the results you’re looking for will be achievable with intense pulsed light therapy. It is essential that the correct diagnosis is made in order to ensure this kind of treatment will work for you.
What is the IPL Procedure Like?
The smooth, glass surface of the Intense pulsed light treatment head is touched to the skin, delivering precise pulses of light to the area being treated. Treatments usually last about 20 minutes and a cooling anesthetic is applied prior to treatment to help with any possible discomfort.
What are Possible Side Effects of Intense Pulsed Light?
Any side effects that could occur are usually minor. The most common side effect is likened to the sensation of a mild sunburn.
