Intense pulsed light (IPL) or Broadband Light (BBL) treatments are used to smooth skin’s texture, even skin tone and correct color pigmentation issues such as rosacea, flushing, sun damage, age spots, redness and/or birth marks. This technique is incredibly powerful and was recently the subject of a university study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. The study’s results suggest that IPL/BBL can promote anti-aging benefits at a molecular level, clinically altering cells to have more youthful genetic traits. With just four treatments per year, the anti-aging effects can last well over 10 years.
Intense pulsed light has proven particularly effective in the jowl, forehead and cheek areas and is also highly useful in the removal of unwanted hair. Prior to treatment, patients should prep their skin with the products suggested by our skincare specialists to ensure the most outstanding results.
