An Overview of IPL Laser Treatment for Your Skin

by Steve Son Marketing Representative

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is used to reduce or remove age spots, sun damage, birthmarks, varicose veins, broken blood vessels on the face, freckles, and hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, or bikini line. IPL is basically a type of light therapy that can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time. The recovery is also quick since the light doesn’t hurt other tissue. This treatment is mainly performed by a board-certified dermatologist, and sometimes a nurse or physician assistant. It’s important that you get it done in the hands of someone who’s skilled with IPL.


Talk to your dermatologist about IPL laser treatment in New Jersey if you want to reduce or get rid of your acne, discolored skin, fine wrinkles, birthmarks, broken blood vessels, scars, spider veins, redness from rosacea, unwanted hair, dark spots from hormonal changes, brown spots (also known as liver or age spots). Your doctor might recommend against this treatment if you are pregnant, are on medication for other conditions, or have a skin condition. IPL is also not a good idea for someone who’s dark-skinned, are light-sensitive, might have skin cancer, use a retinoid cream.


Although IPL is similar to a laser treatment, but the main difference lies in the fact that IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash in comparison to laser meaning the light is more scattered and penetrates deep down up till the second layer of your skin. Since IPL is less focused than a laser, it causes less damage to your skin.




This procedure isn’t that cheap, and it is the type of condition you’re having treated and the size of the treatment area that decides the cost. Moreover, most insurance plans do not cover the cost for a cosmetic procedure, still talk to your dermatologist or dermatology clinic regarding payment plans. Some alternatives to IPL include lasers, Microdermabrasion and Fraxel laser treatment.


Possible Risks:


There’s no risk when IPL is done by a trained professional. However, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure. Some unwanted side effects include scars, swelling, change in color, bleeding, get crusty, infection, blistering, bruising. It’s best that you consult with your dermatologist regarding side effects.


Benefits of IPL Treatment:


1. Fast recovery

2. Sessions are quicker in comparison to other cosmetic treatments

3. Fewer side effects due to the light not affecting the top layers of skin


After the treatment, you will need to follow some instructions as told by your dermatologist to heal quickly. It is your doctor who’ll tell you when it’s safe to go back to your normal skin care routine.
