If your skin is has seen better days, restoring even coloring and radiance is easy with intense pulse light (IPL) treatments. Women and men from in and around Lexington, London, and Nicholasville, KY, enjoy these effective skin rejuvenation treatments because there is minimal discomfort and recovery time.

How Does IPL Work?

During an IPL treatment intense light penetrates the skin without harming its surface. Concentrated pigment—in the skin or visible capillaries—absorbs the intense light and is heated until it breaks apart into tiny particles. The damaged pigment is then gradually sloughed off the surface of the skin or flushed away by the body’s natural cleansing processes. Because the energy is absorbed by pigment, IPL is not safe for dark or tanned skin.

What Are the Benefits of IPL?

Perfect for undoing sun damage and the effects of aging, IPL treatments are safe and effective on most areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, chest, shoulders, and hands. Concerns often addressed include:

  • Brown spots, freckles, age spots
  • Rosacea
  • Broken capillaries

Other skin treatments that go well with IPL include microneedling to improve texture and increase firmness. Laser skin resurfacing can provide more significant rejuvenation to address wrinkles, skin texture, and tone, as well as pigmentation issues.
