Learn How IPL Creates A Smoother And More Even Complexion

Unprotected and cumulative sun exposure can prompt the skin to react defensively by creating concentrated areas of pigment, which appear as spots that are visibly darker than the surrounding area. These pigmentation irregularities go by a number of names, from freckles to sun spots to age spots. Ultraviolet radiation and time can also cause the surface of the skin to thin, making small blood vessels more visible, as well as reduce the collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid molecules that keep skin firm and smooth.

IPL addresses all of these changes by introducing powerful light energy into areas where signs of sun damage have developed. Each intense pulse of light from the sophisticated device travels through the surface and is absorbed by darker-pigmented cells. This causes the darker cells to grow hot—the same way a black car will heat up more than a white one on a sunny day.

The effects of an IPL session depend on the cosmetic condition being treated. The pigmented cells in age spots die off, and the lesions will gradually flake away. The dark-red blood cells that cause spider veins to be visible and the general redness that contributes to a look of constant flushing or blushing heat up and cause thin blood vessels to seal off and be absorbed into the body. IPL can also trigger the production of valuable fresh collagen and elastin in the skin, which work together to reduce fine lines by adding natural volume and improving youthful elasticity.

What Can IPL Do For You?

Our talented and experienced providers use IPL to target specific cosmetic skin conditions with precision. IPL is typically used to address:

  • Age spots, liver spots, and freckles
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea and general redness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Certain birthmarks can also be treated with IPL. Talk to the VITRA team to discover the many uses for intense pulsed light and how IPL can benefit you!

While laser treatments use a single frequency of light to generate heat in the skin, IPL uses pulses of multiple wavelengths for a more powerful and customizable treatment. The treatments are sometimes called IPL Photofacials because of how they use light to rejuvenate the entire face, resulting in an overall refreshed appearance.

Who Is A Good Candidate For IPL?

IPL treatments are ideal for anyone who wants to get a clearer complexion, whether by targeting specific spots or improving the general look and feel of their facial skin. Before starting any treatments, however, you will first meet with a member of the VITRA Aesthetics Clinic team to share your cosmetic concerns and get answers to any questions you may have about your options. This consultation is also when you will share your medical history and have a skin exam so the ideal treatment for you can be determined.

The goal is for the VITRA team to better understand your goals and tailor a plan that helps you to achieve them to maximize your experience and confidence.

What Makes VITRA Aesthetics Clinic A Go-to Choice For IPL?

Beautiful results are about more than simply performing an IPL treatment. The team at VITRA Aesthetics Clinic is thoroughly trained in using intense pulsed light on a wide variety of patients and has the experience to know how different conditions react to different treatments and techniques. At VITRA, patient safety and comfort are priorities, since your experience and long-term health are both vital parts of enjoying the benefits of your treatment.

VITRA is also committed to investing in highly advanced technology, so each treatment reflects the exacting standards and expectations of professionals who care about their patients and demand quality and consistency from the devices they use. Every IPL treatment is based on a foundation of science, research, and years of practical applications, blended with a true desire to educate and connect with each person seeking a skincare solution. You will not just have your spots treated, but will get personalized care and education on how to maintain your youthful skin and reduce the effects of photoaging in the future.

What Happens During An IPL Session?

The IPL device used at VITRA Aesthetics Clinic is designed to automatically cool the surface of the skin and maximize patient comfort—even as the targeted pigmented cells heat up.

Temperatures are carefully monitored and regulated, which means treatments are safe, well tolerated, and provide beautifully consistent results.

What Happens After An IPL Session?

While every session is unique, each takes only minutes to complete. Patients are free to resume their scheduled activities soon after their treatment while wearing sunscreen to protect against new damage from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

Beautiful results will begin to be visible in the following days and weeks as lesions flake off, veins collapse, and new collagen production causes the skin to feel and appear noticeably smoother. Some patients find that they get their ideal results after multiple IPL sessions, spaced about a month apart.

Once skin has been treated and cleared, patients can return for annual visits to maintain their more youthful complexion—or any time as desired if new signs of sun damage appear.

What Other Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Are Available At VITRA Aesthetics Clinic?

Patients who want to focus more on collagen-building treatments have plenty of options, including Evoke facial reshaping (which uses radiofrequency energy to trigger collagen production), microneedling (which uses tiny needles that can be combined with RF energy), Sculptra® (an injectable collagen stimulator), and chemical peels. Exfoliating peels also work to remove dead layers of skin, which addresses both fine lines and lesions.

VITRA Aesthetic Clinic offers so many different strategies in order to be able to tailor the ideal treatment to each patient. Start with a consultation and discover the possibilities of harnessing the power of light to restore a beautifully youthful look!
