Get New and Improved Skin with the Lumenis M22 IPL
Intense Pulsed Light or IPL is a light therapy used to treat unwanted hair, wrinkles, and skin discoloration. It works by producing high-intensity light in a short period of time. Unlike a laser, IPL uses many different wavelengths of light that’s scattered and less focused. If you’re looking to improve the overall appearance of your skin, consider photo rejuvenation.
What Does IPL Treat?
The Lumenis M22 IPL has a wide range of functions that allow specialists to tailor treatments to a variety of skin conditions. This effective and gentle IPL treatment was created to help patients with:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Age spots
- Spider veins
- Skin discoloration
Before, During, and After Treatment
To determine if IPL treatments are the best for you, schedule a consultation at BHSkin Dermatology. We'll let you know what the best treatment is for you based on your unique circumstances and goals. In general, IPL isn't recommended for darker skin tones or raised scars. IPL may not work as well on uneven areas of the body or light-colored hair.
During IPL Treatment
We may apply a topical numbing gel or cooling agent to maximize patient comfort. It truly depends on the type of treatment being done. You will likely feel a warm sensation where the light is being applied to the skin.
After IPL Treatment
Following your treatment, it’s normal to notice skin flushing for up to 24 hours. Also, swelling is common, especially if you have sensitive skin. You may also notice that some areas of the skin darken and feel dry, but it will return to its natural state in less than a week.
