Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a light based treatment to treat undesirable pigment, vessels and dark hair. IPL delivers focused energy into your skin, targeting vascular and pigmented lesions which slowly disappear as your body heals. The same process targets the cells in dark hair shafts. Vascular lesions typically improve with 1-2 treatments while pigmented lesions can take 3-4 treatments. Hair removal can take 4 or more treatments. The ideal candidate is someone who has not tanned in a month. Darker skin types cannot be treated due to risks of permanent discoloration or loss of pigment. Immediately following treatment skin can feel sunburned but typically resolves in a few hours. Some swelling is possible and resolves in 2-24 hours. Treated vascular lesions will darken and slowly be absorbed into the skin over the following week. Pigmented lesions will defragment after darkening and fall off in 5-7 days on the face and take longer on the extremities.
