What Is IPL Skin Rejuvenation

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and it is an FDA and TGA approved treatment widely used for skin rejuvenation. It is proven to be a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment especially for people looking for minimally invasive skin treatments.

Also known as photo-rejuvenation, IPL is a relatively simple and straightforward treatment that can be used to enhance the anti-aging properties of your skin. Because of little to no downtime, relatively few concerns with side effects and high level of efficacy, IPL continues to become a widely utilized choice for skin pigmentation.

Brief Overview of How IPL Works

Intense Pulsed Light can be used to treat a wide range of conditions including but not limited to skin blemishes as well as hair growth rejuvenation. The principle of how it works is pretty much the same although there are minor differences in the specific procedures.

When used for skin rejuvenation, IPL improves the fine blood vessels and skin pigmentation. A medical grade handheld flashgun is passed across the treatment area of your skin. This delivers a quick powerful flash of light which penetrates below the skin surface containing the unwanted skin pigment. The heat from the light breaks down the unwanted melanin into tiny particles which rise to the surface in form of crust. If it gets to the surface, the crust falls off in 7-10 days but if it doesn’t then it is washed away by the lymphatic system.

If your skin is marred with facial veins, then these are sealed when the red haemoglobin gets heated and new skin cells, as well as collagen, is produced as the skin heals.

IPL vs Laser Treatments

Although IPL is categorized under laser treatments it is quite different from typical laser-based skin treatments. IPL uses a broad spectrum light which does not involve lasers. Unlike laser concentrated beams, IPL machines produce a wide spectrum of wavelengths which cannot be focused to a concentrated beam. The different wavelengths penetrate the skin at different depths which makes IPL a versatile technique that improves the skin in several ways.
