Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is one of the most important advances in anti-aging light treatment or phototherapy.  IPL treats red and brown spots on the skin, corrects damaged skin, delays skin aging, and maintains healthy skin over many years.

IPL is the latest development in anti-aging light treatment or phototherapy.

Intense Pulsed Light includes a wide range of visible and invisible (infrared) light that is more versatile, precise, and effective than traditional IPL for treating skin problems.  It sets a new standard for photofacial skin rejuvenation.

The light energy absorbed by the targeted areas repairs damaged DNA and stimulates skin cells to regenerate. IPL treatments make the skin smoother, more uniform in color,  and more youthful. The photothermal energy eliminates small blood vessels causing redness and reduces excess melanin causing age or sun spots. IPL corrects damaged skin, delays skin aging, and maintains healthy skin over many years.

Skin aging is actually reversed with Intense Pulsed Light photoherapy!

Medical research has shown that IPL really does turn back the clock on skin aging. A recent Stanford University study found that IPL at least once a year prevented skin aging throughout the 11 year duration of the study. This remarkable finding was investigated at the molecular level. The gene expression in skin treated with IPL was that of younger skin, explaining the visible lack of skin aging over the study duration.

IPL is effective for treating these skin conditions:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
