Intense Pulsed Light
Whether it’s rosacea or sunspots, having hyperpigmentation can make you want to hide your skin. Fortunately, Dr. Eric Jorgenson, ND, and his team at New Day Aesthetic Medicine can help eliminate pigment issues with intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy.
IPL, or intense pulsed light, therapy uses light energy to reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation and the signs of aging. IPL therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to penetrate the second layer of your skin without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue. It’s safe and effective all over the body but does work better on smooth surfaces.
How Does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Work?
Your IPL therapy begins with skin preparation. After cleansing your skin, Dr. Jorgenson applies an ultrasound gel, which keeps your skin safe and comfortable during the treatment. The New Day Aesthetic Medicine practice’s IPL equipment also features a cutting-edge integrated cooling plate to minimize discomfort.
Dr. Jorgenson will provide eye shields to protect your eyes from the intense light. He then uses the IPL handheld device to apply the light energy directly to your treatment area. Though every treatment is different, IPL therapy sessions typically last 20-30 minutes. Dr.Jorgenson recommends three to six treatments scheduled about one month apart to give you the best results possible.
