What is IPL?
IPL (intense pulse light) has established itself as a mainstay for skin rejuvenation with no “down-time” after a procedure. IPL stimulates new collagen and improves skin texture. It is also effective for teleangiectasias, rosacea and melasma.
Patients have shown improvement of 70-80% in skin tone, tightening, and skin texture, and 30-40% in wrinkles by increasing collagen production. Most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, chest and hands. CCombination of IPL (intense pulse light) and Nd:YAG Laser offers treatment of broken capillaries, varicose veins and spider veins anywhere on the body.

Most common side effects are bruising, darkening of the vessels and redness of the skin. The light energy is converted to heat that irreversibly damages the lining of the wall and causes intravascular coagulation.
The IPL has the ability to remove a multitude of vascular lesions such as venous lakes, hemangiomas, spider veins anywhere on the body, spider angiomas, cherry angiomas, port wine stains and rosacea. Most of these lesions disappear after one treatment, some need repeated attention in 4-8 week intervals.
