Learn more about how IPL at Rostami OPC can benefit you and whether you are a good candidate for treatment.

What is Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL)?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, also known as photorejuvenation or photo facial, is a non-invasive therapy that uses broad-spectrum light to target and diminish the appearance of various skin concerns. IPL is effective in treating hyperpigmentation, sun damage, vascular imperfections, and other signs of photoaging. This treatment delivers pulses of light that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the chromophores, leading to the targetted destruction of pigmentation or vascular marks while promoting collagen production.

Candidates for Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL)

IPL is ideal for individuals with light to medium skin tones looking to improve the quality and appearance of their skin without lengthy recovery times. It is especially effective for those dealing with sun damage, rosacea, fine lines, and uneven skin texture. During your consultation at Rostami OPC, our experts will evaluate your skin type and concerns to determine if IPL is the most suitable treatment for you.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL) Treatment

At Rostami OPC, an IPL session typically takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Our skilled practitioners apply a cooling gel to the treatment area and use a handheld device to emit pulses of broad-spectrum light directly onto the skin. The light energy is converted to heat, which destroys the targeted skin cells while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results depending on the area and condition being treated.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL) Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from IPL treatment is quick, with most patients experiencing little to no downtime. You may notice some redness or mild swelling immediately after the procedure, which typically subsides within a few hours. Sun protection is crucial following IPL treatment to protect the newly sensitive skin from UV exposure and to maintain the results of your treatment.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL) Results

The results of IPL improve with each treatment session. Over the course of treatments, you can expect to see a significant reduction in visible skin imperfections, a more even skin tone, and a smoother skin texture.
