Photorejuvenation with IPL, also known as IPL photofacial machine, is a procedure designed to stimulate and encourage the healing and regeneration of the skin through the application of a broad spectrum light. In fact, “IPL” means “intense pulsed light” (in English). While this therapy is not as concentrated as a laser treatment, it can still be incredibly beneficial to the skin.
What is intensely pulsed light therapy (IPL )?
Intense pulsed light therapy was invented by Dr. Patrick Bitters Jr. The IPL photofacial cutaneous procedure is performed with an intense beam of broad-spectrum light (unlike lasers, which operate within a very specific wavelength) directed towards the dermis, that is, towards the innermost layer of the skin. While stimulating the production of collagen, this procedure eliminates damaged and photo-aged skin. IPL photorejuvenation therapy improves skin color, consistency, and texture all at the same time.
What can be treated by photorejuvenation with IPL?
IPL photorejuvenation machine can treat a wide variety of skin problems. It can be used to eliminate red spots or diffuse redness and can help with acne or rosacea. Since they stimulate the production of collagen, the treatments with IPL also help to soften the uneven texture of the skin, to close the dilated pores and to eliminate wrinkles.
Due to its diverse applications, it is not surprising that many consider IPL photorejuvenation to be the most versatile cutaneous treatment of today.
