What Can IPL Do for Your Skin?

How many times have you looked in the mirror and wished your skin looked as clean and smooth as it did years ago? Our patients from all across the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles choose facial skin rejuvenation using intense pulsed light, more commonly referred to as "IPL." This treatment emits a broad spectrum of light, giving the Skin Specialist at Lisa Benest, MD, Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology Office the ability to treat a wide range of skin imperfections.

IPL stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, giving the skin a firmer and more youthful texture. A series of IPL treatments can improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, broken capillaries, redness, and rosacea. Our patients from across Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley have found that this treatment is also effective for mild acne scars (learn more about Laser Acne treatment), as well as reducing the size of pores and fine lines.

During treatment, light emitted by the IPL device is absorbed by vascular (related to blood vessels) and pigmented lesions in the skin, which are gently heated and destroyed. For some patients, these skin blemishes actually may appear slightly more noticeable for a few days after treatment before they begin to fade. The light energy also triggers the skin to produce more collagen, renewing itself from within.

Fast Facts on IPL Facial Rejuvenation

Here are some of the most important things you need to know if you are considering Photo Rejuvenation at our Burbank office.

Number of Treatments Required:
Most of our patients see their best results with a series of 5 treatments. After each treatment, the skin will progressively appear smoother, more vibrant, and more youthful.

Treatment Interval:
Each treatment is spaced about a month apart.

Treatment Time:
Most of our patients need about 60 to 90 minutes for the treatment.

Recovery Time:
IPL is a no-downtime treatment. Your skin may be slightly red for a short period after treatment, but you can carry on with normal activities as soon as you leave the office and makeup may be applied the same day. Use of sunscreen following treatment is highly recommended.

Results:
Treatments can fade age spots while minimizing redness and blotchiness. In addition, our clients experience a smoother skin texture and reduction in fine lines. Enjoy clear, even, smooth skin with a more youthful glow.

Real Patient Story:

"My skin has never looked better since I started the IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments. I couldn't go out without applying powder and had large pores. Finally, my pores shrank and the skin has evened out and looks like baby skin. I'm 49 and people can't believe my true age." - A.L.
