Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a light-based therapy that uses filtered, scattered light to treat your skin. Often called photorejuvenation or a photofacial, IPL is a noninvasive aesthetic procedure performed with a handheld device placed on your skin.

IPL can also promote collagen production, which makes your skin appear smoother and firmer.
Before your IPL treatment, the team at Ageless Med Spa applies a soothing gel to the treatment area to keep you as comfortable as possible during the procedure. You may feel a warm, snapping sensation as the team passes the handheld device over your skin, but the procedure shouldn't cause any pain. The treatment doesn’t require any downtime afterward.
After your IPL procedure, your skin may look redder for several days. Some of your spots may appear darker, but eventually they lighten and fade away. For optimal results, you typically need three to six IPL sessions spaced three to four weeks apart.
Improving the look and texture of your skin is possible with a personalized IPL treatment regimen. Call Ageless Med Spa or book a consultation online today to find out what IPL therapy can do for your complexion.
