If you have some unwanted signs of aging, you don’t have to live with them. The technology behind modern skincare offers a range of amazing solutions, including IPL treatment.

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. The facials that use this technology use a hand-held device that treats the skin with special wavelengths to target the signs of aging. 

What Is IPL Treatment?

IPL facial treatment is a way to restore a youthful glow to your skin’s texture by stimulating collagen and heating up cells that have acquired a dark pigmentation over time. The device emits a broad spectrum of wavelengths that are attracted to the brown and red areas of your skin.

When the cells in these areas heat up, they diminish and are absorbed back into your body, giving you a more evenly colored complexion. IPL devices use a spectrum that can address multiple signs of aging at the same time. This is helpful for people who want to achieve a generally youthful appearance. 

What Can IPL Treat?

IPL encourages the production of more collagen. Once produced, the collagen goes to work on improving effects of aging, such as sun damage, fine lines, and redness. The IPL wavelengths are attracted to the pigmentation of the damaged areas. The targeted cells heat up and the pigmented or wrinkled areas are destroyed, leaving clearer skin. By helping our bodies produce more collagen, IPL can brighten the skin and increase its smoothness. 

How Much Does It Cost?

The average cost of an IPL treatment is $625. The cost depends on the rates of the clinic and the area that you want treated, along with how large or small that area might be.
