Intense Pulsed Light or Broad Band Light, called IPL or BBL, is one of the oldest and most popular treatments in laser medicine. IPL targets brown spots, redness and broken blood vessels on the face, neck and chest. Like the name suggests, it pulses the skin with an intense light similar to a laser, but with a lower intensity. It is effective for skin imperfections such as rosacea, melasma and pigment blotchiness. As an added bonus, IPL also promotes luster, brightness and clarity of the skin, subtly stimulating healthier looking skin.
What you can expect:
- Although you can do individual treatments we suggest treatments in packages of 3 about 3-4 weeks apart.
- Our trained providers will apply numbing cream to the area prior to treatment to make your experience more comfortable.
- After treatment you may experience some swelling or redness and some subtle shedding of brown spots for a few days.
- The improvement from even 1 IPL treatment is visible within a week.
Why you should choose Key Laser for IPL
IPL treatments are widely available at medspas and other clinics. We advise you to choose carefully. Please do not choose to do IPL at any location that does not have responsible physician supervision. We often see firsthand the negative consequences from IPL treatments performed at medspas and clinics. As with any laser or light treatment, it is important to choose well-trained medical providers. You can be confident in the skill and advanced training of our experienced aestheticians and nurses.
