Intense Pulsed Light

IPL

Get more youthful-looking skin with the latest innovative skin care treatment in St. Louis.

This non-invasive procedure uses bursts of high-intensity light energy to give you more youthful-looking skin and reduce the appearance of a number of imperfections, including brown spots, age spots, sun damage, redness, rosacea, and broken capillaries. IPL also stimulates collagen production, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles while rejuvenating your skin.

How IPL works

IPL is a type of selective photothermolysis that harnesses various wavelengths of light, allowing us to treat a variety of skin conditions gently and non-abrasively. Since the specific wavelength of light and pulse duration is set to target a specifically colored tissue, treatment is accurate and causes only localized effects. A safe and effective procedure, IPL can be used to treat the face, neck, hands, and other areas of the body that are prone to the effects of sun exposure.

The IPL Procedure

During an intense pulsed light procedure, you will relax while your skin is cleansed thoroughly to remove oils and impurities and is covered with a thick, cold gel. Next, the machine’s painless light technology will be applied to the treatment area. One treatment session takes about forty minutes, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule. Depending on the severity of sun damage you have, you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Following the procedure, your skin may appear flushed, and sunspots may darken. This will gradually fade over the next several days, and we recommend that you wear sunscreen and avoid harsh cleansers after your treatment.

How the IPL procedure can improve your skin

This revolutionary procedure targets specific concerns such as discoloration while providing overall rejuvenation. We recommend this treatment for the following:

  • Minimizing the effects of sun damage, including lightening age spots
  • Reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation irregularities
  • Achieving a more even skin tone
  • Minimizing large pores
  • Diminishing the appearance of broken capillaries
  • Reducing the effects of rosacea
