About IPL

At the Defy Medical Spa, we are proud to offer IPL photo rejuvenation treatments to refresh your appearance. IPL applies broadband light technology to treat signs of aging and sun damage using pulsed light. The light energy heats the top layers of your skin targeted for treatment, stimulating those cells to produce new collagen. The photothermal energy emitted by the BBL device can also eliminate the damaged blood vessels and capillaries in your skin that cause redness, as well as the excess melanin responsible for hyperpigmentation, melasma (sun spots), and freckles. Because the device is so versatile, our physician is able to treat problems on any area of the body. In addition, IPL Laser Treatments can be used to diminish unwanted hair and help control acne. If you are suffering from any of these skin afflictions, then we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Defy Medical Spa today.

Ideal Candidates For IPL

You will be an ideal candidate for a IPL treatment if you are suffering from skin damage and aging due to overexposure to the sun. UV rays can cause severe wrinkles, age spots, and other skin afflictions that detract from your overall complexion. A IPL treatment can also be used to reduce visible blood vessels, help rosacea or hyperpigmentation, as well as eliminate acne and unwanted body hair. While it is primarily used as a photofacial treatment, the device can be administered to any areas of your body that need rejuvenating and smoothing. This is a great option if you have had little success with other anti-aging and skin products and do not wish to undergo surgery.

What to Expect

One of the great advantages of IPL Laser Treatments is that there is little to no downtime following treatment: you should be able to return to your regular activities right away. Initially, your face may look a bit red or flushed, but this usually fades within a few hours. If necessary, you can apply ice to the treated areas after the procedure, but it is recommended that you avoid any anti-inflammatory medication (including over the counter pain relievers) for a few days both before and after your treatment. Side effects are rare and may include slight bruising or swelling, which typically fades in 5 – 10 days. Our physician will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin following your IPL procedure. Over the course of a few weeks, you will notice smoother skin and a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
