Intensed Pulse Light (IPL) Laser Treatment
Everyone wants a clear skin, a smooth skin with a youthful glow and free of imperfections. And everyone deserves that too. Everyone deserves to be proud of how he or she looks. Fortunately, the Setiba Aesthetics Group has the treatment to give you that perfect smooth skin you’ve been dreaming of. It’s called IPL or Intense Pulsed Light. It’s a very easy process, with only a low to medium level of discomfort, and low to zero downtime!
What is IPL Laser Treatment
IPL or Intense Pulsed Light Laser Treatment is a procedure that involves a super bright flashing beam of energy applied to the area of skin that needs treatment. It targets pigmented and vascular regions of the skin and break out hyper-pigmentation. This removes any skin discoloration like dark spots and freckles, melasma, moles, birthmarks, broken capillaries and more to help the patient get that smooth clear skin.
There are different kinds of IPL Laser Treatment depending on the needs of the patient, or the areas that the patient wants to get treated. The IPL Laser Treatment, for instance, can be a spot corrector to treat specific spots like acne scars or dark areas. The Intense Pulsed Light technology may also be used to correct signs of aging when there are vessels involved, such as the hands or neck area. Basically, it can be used in any skin area that requires attention.
Does IPL Laser Treatment hurt?
As what we have already mentioned above, our patients report a low to medium level of discomfort only during the treatment. The feeling is close to a warm sensation, hence no numbing or anesthesia is required, unless requested or needed to provide maximum comfort.
Post-treatment will be similar to getting a sunburn, but this can easily be relieved using water mists and usually goes away within twelve hours after the treatment. Post-treatment care instructions will be provided by the skin expert after the procedure.
Don’t worry, the IPL Laser treatment is extremely safe with minimal downtime and side effects. However there are certain skin types that does not suit well with the treatment that is also one of the reasons why a pre-treatment consultation is needed.
After the treatment, the area may turn a bit darker in color and may turn into a scabbing. This is absolutely normal. Once the scabbing flakes off, your new and clear skin will be revealed underneath.
You will start seeing results of the treatment around two weeks after the procedure.
How many IPL Laser Treatment are required?
The number of IPL Laser Treatments vary from patient to patient. On the average, three treatment sessions may already be enough to get the best results, but depending on severity, some patients may need up to six sessions in order to get that clear skin result.
This is the reason why a thorough consultation is required before any treatment is done. A board-certified skin expert will determine the number of sessions that you would need to get the best possible outcome.
