If you’ve ever considered ways to rejuvenate your skin’s health and appearance without plastic surgery or the risk of extensive downtime, you are not alone. Many adult men and women are looking for a reliable way to improve their skin with today’s amazing technology. There are several nonsurgical solutions available to patients who are interested in skin enhancement, including IPL treatment at the practice of Dr. Wayne Larrabee of Seattle, WA.
What is IPL?
IPL is an acronym for “intense pulsed light.” These treatments are used to improve the areas targeted while avoiding damage to the surrounding tissues. The intense pulsed light is absorbed into the skin by dilated blood vessels that are responsible for discoloration on the skin. The gentle heat offered by the light works to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, addressing lesions and redness. While after treatment, discoloration may darken, they will flake off to reveal radiant, beautiful, and healthier skin that is smooth and improved!
What can IPL be used to treat?
IPL treatment is used to address a variety of issues on the skin, making it a great solution for patients with various skin concerns. Below are just a few of the conditions that may be treated with the use of intense pulsed light at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery:
- Age spots
- Skin discoloration
- Sun damage
- Dark circles around the eyes
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin texture and tone
- Mild acne scars
- Enlarged pores
How many treatments do I need?
While one treatment can boost the skin’s appearance, many patients will want to schedule anywhere from three to six treatments spaced a few weeks apart. After this, regular routine visits should occur to maintain the results.
