IPL — also referred to as intense pulsed light — is one of the most popular and effective treatments here at Seiler Skin. This treatment uses multiple wavelengths of light to effectively treat red and brown discoloration in the skin. In addition to addressing pigmentation, IPL is also great for reducing acne and improving overall complexion. For deeper set pigmentation/hyperpigmentation in patients with darker skin, we may recommend alternative treatments such as TXA microneedling for more effective results.
WHAT DOES IPL TREAT?
IPL addresses a number of common concerns, including:
- Photoaged skin
- Age spots/sun damage
- Hormonal hyperpigmentation
- Rosacea/skin redness
- Abnormally discolored scars
- Port wine stains and other common birthmarks
- Enlarged pores
- Spider veins
THE SEILER SKIN DIFFERENCE
Dr. Seiler’s depth of experience in laser technology is the key differentiator between our IPL treatment and that offered by other providers in the area. Dr. Seiler is a board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon and brings years of experience both practicing and training fellow providers on laser procedures. His wealth of knowledge allows him to properly consult with each patient to determine what treatment plan is best to fit their goals.
We also stand apart from other providers because of the top-tier device we use during IPL treatment. It is important for practitioners to administer IPL at the proper treatment parameters to both effectively treat the skin while at the same time preventing damage/burns. By combining the best device in the market alongside other proven treatments shown to improve the results of IPL, such as TXA microneedling, we are able to safely, effectively treat the skin and improve your overall appearance.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR IPL?
Patients experiencing hyperpigmentation, discoloration, redness/rosacea or acne are ideal candidates for IPL. Dr. Seiler meets with every patient for a one-on-one consultation to address their concerns and determine the best treatment plan.
WHAT IS THE IPL PROCESS LIKE?
Patients may experience slight discomfort during treatment but can return to their schedules immediately after. We offer patients the option to receive Pro-Nox prior to treatment to minimize discomfort. Slight redness in the treated area is typical and lasts for about 12-24 hours.
Results can typically be seen after just one IPL treatment with an overall improvement in your skin’s appearance. Deeper set pigmentation, discoloration or acne may require multiple treatments. We also may recommend combining IPL with TXA microneedling and/or medical-grade skincare products to achieve optimal results.
