IPL- Remove Pigment on Body Simsbury, CT

Do you have pigmentation problems on your body? Do your pigmentation issues include freckles, age, and sunspots? There are other types of pigmentation issues including melasma, which is hormonally induced, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or PIH.

You can use IPL or Intense Pulsed Light to remove your pigmentation issues.  IPL is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners for skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. IPL works for hair removal, vascular lesions, fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, and broken capillaries.

Intense pulsed light is used to safely and effectively treat many skin conditions, including vascular and pigmented lesions, tattoos, scars, and unwanted hair. It also provides extensive therapeutic options for cosmetic rejuvenation. IPL will minimize age spots, sun damage, freckles, birthmarks, varicose veins, rosacea, broken blood vessels on your race, and even the hair on your face.

What is IPL?

IPL treats different types of pigmentation on the face and body by sending light energy into the skin through specific nanometers that are customized by the type of pigmentation you have. Specific light energy is attracted to the melanin or pigment in your skin and works by breaking it up and leaving the surrounding tissues intact. The body digests the pigmentation that has been damaged and leaves the skin clearer and even.

IPL is a bit similar to laser treatment, but a laser focuses just one wavelength of light on your skin. IPL releases the light of many different wavelengths, similar to a photo flash. The light from an IPL device is scattered and less focused than a laser device, but IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin without harming the top layer. It causes less damage and possible burning to your skin that can be caused by laser treatment.

What Can I Expert During the Procedure

During IPL treatment an ultrasound gel is applied to the cleaned area to be treated. Ultrasound gel helps keep the skin cool while the light energy treats your pigmentation issues.

As pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, light is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment cells and clears up freckles, scars, age, and dark spots. The treatment generally takes about 30 minutes in the clinic, and it is safe. You can return to your regular daily duties after the treatment with little or no side effects.
