IPL SPECIALISTS

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is a skin treatment option that can provide impressive results without the need for surgery or recovery time. The treatment can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and address hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and more. For many men and women in the Las Vegas area, IPL is a preferred cosmetic treatment. SKIN offers the Lumenis M22 as one of many options to help you look and feel your best. We offer 2 IPL treatments at SKIN Las Vegas. See below.

Photofacial

Intense Pulse Light technology utilizes multiple wavelengths to target pigmentation and vascular imperfections along with stimulating collagen and elastin fibers. The M22 System is the newest and most advanced IPL system on the market.  Its technology allows us to filter out wavelengths to customize and target different colors within the skin.

Photofractional

Photofractional treatment combines both our Advanced IPL and ResurFX technologies into one incredible treatment.  It removes unwanted pigment while stimulating new collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin.  The results are reduced pigmentation, smoother tone, firmer texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and minimizes pore sizes.  Perfect for remodeling and reducing the pigment in scars and stretch marks as well.

    IPL Q & A

    How does IPL therapy work?

    IPL uses multiple laser wavelengths to generate heat and destroy the melanin, or pigment, in your skin or blood vessels. Because it uses a broad spectrum of light, treatments can target many different color variations.

    The treatment uses special filters for specific applications, giving your aesthetician the ability to provide a customized treatment experience. These filters block wavelengths that don’t impact blood vessels or pigment, making the treatment more effective.

    The targeted light damages the tissues in the treatment area, prompting your body to respond to repair that damage. The damaged tissue is flushed from your system, leaving smoother skin and reduced pigmentation or visible blood vessels.

    What type of skin issues can IPL address?

    This is an excellent treatment option for removing areas of hyperpigmentation or skin discoloration. Many people seek photofacials to improve the appearance of age spots, which are small areas of concentrated pigment.

    This is also an effective treatment for a condition known as Telangiectasia, where tiny blood vessels just below the surface of your skin widen. Telangiectasia creates thin, colored lines that can appear red, blue, and even purple. Many people experience telangiectasias on their face, but they can also occur on your arms, legs, chest, or back.

    Many people who experience IPL photofacials report improvements in their skin’s overall tone. Some show improvements in fine lines and wrinkles, even though this isn’t the primary purpose of a photofacial.

    Is IPL therapy a painful experience?

    Most men and women find the photofacial to be only minimally uncomfortable. Before the treatment begins, your provider applies a cooling gel to your skin, and you’re given dark glasses to protect your eyes.

    The IPL wand is passed across the surface of your skin, directing pulses of light to the treatment area. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes. Once complete, your aesthetician removes the gel and applies a special moisturizer to protect your skin.

    For optimal results, you may need 3-6 treatments, depending on the severity of your pigmentation or telangiectasia and your body’s response to IPL therapy. Those treatments are spaced around 30 days apart to give your body time to heal.

    Expect your areas of skin discoloration to appear worse for a few days following treatment. After that point, your skin begins to peel, and you’ll start to notice the results.

    Laser Procedure Post Care

     

    The best way to minimize the risks of any procedure is to follow your post-treatment care. Please be sure to consult with your technician if you have any questions on any item listed or any other concerns you may have.

    Apply SPF broad-spectrum UVA/UVB 30 or higher,15 minutes before going outside.

    A histamine blocker (such as Benadryl) may be taken the night of the procedure to help with swelling (if associated with itching.)

    Avoid heat which includes exercise, jacuzzi, or any other activities that would heat up the skin for 24 hours.

    Avoid any direct sunlight or tanning beds for 7-10 days.

    Avoid Retin-A for 72 hours.

    Avoid any other laser treatments or chemical procedures on the treated area for 2 weeks post-treatment.

    Cleanse using a gentle facial cleanser.  Do not scrub, use hot water or a washcloth.

    Do not wax for 2 weeks after treatment.

    Keep skin hydrated.

    No scrubs, facial brushes, retinol, or any exfoliating agents for 7 days after treatment.

    It is normal for the treated area to feel like sunburn during this time.

    You may experience slight redness that will lighten within 24 to 48 hours.

    Tylenol is recommended for post-treatment discomfort.

    If you experience any side effects such as hypo or hyperpigmentation, prolonged redness or swelling, histamine reaction, or blistering call or come in for instruction or treatment.
