Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a patented fluorescent pulsed-light technology that effectively treats facial redness, flushing, and brown spots or pigment problems on your face, neck, and chest. By carefully delivering a series of gentle light pulses to the skin, IPL treatments restore a more youthful appearance with no downtime, little discomfort, and minimal risk.

Potential Side Effects
During the treatment, some patients experience mild discomfort that can be addressed with a topical anesthetic. Following each treatment, the skin may appear flushed, tiny vessels may be more visible, and brown spots may appear darker. These effects decrease in a few hours.

You will experience smoother skin, smaller pores, and fading of sun spots as well as a gradual decrease in the overall redness and flushing in your face, neck, or chest. If you suffer from rosacea, a common vascular problem, IPL treatments can improve your symptoms significantly.
