SmoothCool™ IPL Therapy

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin therapy is a popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses broad-spectrum light to address skin concerns such as sun damage, age spots, redness, and superficial blood vessels. By delivering pulses of light energy to the skin, IPL reduces imperfections, resulting in smoother, clearer, and more even-toned skin. Typically performed in a series of sessions spaced a few weeks apart, IPL targets melanin or hemoglobin, converting light into heat that damages targeted cells while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. This triggers the body's natural healing response, removing damaged cells and revealing healthier skin. Benefits include pigmentation correction, reduction of vascular lesions, minimal downtime, and versatility in treating various skin concerns on different body areas. Experience IPL's transformative power for a radiant, youthful complexion.

About SmoothCool™ IPL Therapy

How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy work?

IPL therapy is typically performed in a series of sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve optimal results. During the treatment, the intense light is absorbed by specific targets in the skin, such as melanin (for pigmented lesions) or hemoglobin (for vascular lesions). When the light is absorbed, it is converted into heat, which damages the targeted cells or blood vessels while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.

This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to the removal of damaged skin cells. These cells gradually flake off or are absorbed by the body, revealing smoother, clearer, and more even-toned skin.

SmoothCool™ IPL - Frequently Asked Questions

IPL therapy can target various skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, vascular lesions (such as broken capillaries and spider veins), and acne.

The number of IPL sessions needed varies depending on the individual’s skin condition and desired results. Typically, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.

IPL therapy is generally well-tolerated by most individuals and is often described as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin. Some people may experience mild discomfort or a warming sensation during treatment, but it is usually brief and tolerable.

The downtime associated with IPL therapy is minimal for most people. You may experience temporary redness, swelling, or slight irritation in the treated area, but these typically resolve within a few hours to a few days. The treated spots that darken initially (“coffee grounds”) generally slough off within a week. You can usually resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.

While IPL therapy is generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, including temporary redness, swelling, skin sensitivity, changes in pigmentation, blistering or crusting, scarring (rare), eye injury (if proper eye protection is not used), and reactivation of herpes simplex virus (HSV) in individuals with a history of cold sores.

The longevity of IPL results varies depending on factors such as the individual’s skin type, the severity of the skin concern being treated, and lifestyle factors like sun exposure and skincare routine. With proper skin care and sun protection, IPL results can last several months to a year or more. Annual maintenance treatments are recommended.

IPL therapy is suitable for individuals with fair to medium skin tones who are looking to improve the appearance of sun damage, pigmentation irregularities, vascular lesions, acne, or signs of aging. It may not be suitable for individuals.

It's important to note that individual results may vary, and multiple sessions may be needed to achieve desired outcomes depending on the specific skin concerns being addressed. Additionally, IPL is not suitable for all skin types, so it's essential to consult with a qualified skincare professional before undergoing treatment.
