IPL Fotofacial Color Correction
IPL Photorejuvenation is a popular skin treatment for skin discoloration caused by the sun. Dr. Hunsicker offers IPL photorejuvenation to men and women in our Denver plastic surgery office.
If you want to reduce or remove uneven pigmentation, you should consider IPL Photorejuvenation treatment. The treatment can be applied to your face, back, arms, hands, neck, and chest.
IPL is great for treating:
- Freckles and brown spots
- Uneven pigmentation
- Pigment changes caused by rosacea
Techniques Used in IPL Therapy
IPL uses technology called Intense Pulsed Light, which is different than laser treatment. Conventional lasers transmit a fixed wavelength of light, while IPL devices emit a broad spectrum of light in a wide range of wavelengths.
During your treatment in Denver, our aesthetician will customize the wavelength of your IPL treatment, so it suits your skin type and works toward meeting your cosmetic goals.
During an IPL treatment, the aesthetician passes a wand over your skin that emits intense pulses of light. The energy is absorbed by the pigment in your skin, which is intentionally damaged. This stimulates your body's natural regenerative processes, which gradually clear the unwanted pigment away. An IPL treatment causes minimal discomfort, and a topical anesthetic can be applied if necessary.
How many IPL treatments will I need?
IPL treatments are usually performed in a series. Good results are usually realized after about five treatments, performed at three-week intervals.
What results can I expect from IPL?
After a series of IPL treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin.
How long is the recovery?
There is no downtime with IPL. You can return to your normal routine immediately following treatment. Remember to protect your skin from the sun and follow any post-treatment instructions from our aesthetician.
