Exploring the Benefits of IPL Skin Treatments


While IPL is not a traditional laser, it uses intense pulsed light to treat various skin concerns, making it a part of the broader field of laser and light-based skin rejuvenation services. IPL is known for its effectiveness in addressing issues like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other skin imperfections, and it can be a valuable option for those seeking facial rejuvenation. 

In many cases, IPL treatment, sometimes called a photofacial, is used to enhance the tone and texture of your skin. It can also target noticeable symptoms of premature skin aging caused by sun exposure known as photoaging.

How Effective Is IPL in Addressing Photoaging Concerns?

IPL treatments use a special cosmetic device to deliver brief bursts of safe, high-intensity light to targeted areas. As the process works to boost collagen production, the treated skin eventually appears fresher, firmer, and more even in tone. Common areas for treatment include the face, chest, neck, arms, and hands. 

A 2016 clinical study published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy concluded that, based on 2,534 patients who received at least three IPL treatments within a 12-year period, IPL therapy provides 88.24% to 96.45% effective treatment for photoaging concerns and reversing signs of photodamage on the skin.

similar positive conclusion was drawn about IPL treatment in another clinical trial published in the Journal of Lasers in Medical Sciences in 2019. IPL may be used to effectively improve periorbital skin aging (wrinkles around the eye area) as part of a facial rejuvenation treatment plan.

Benefits of IPL Skin Treatments

IPL skin treatments can target a broad range of dermatological concerns, including:

  • Photoaging
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Telangiectasia (broken capillaries)

Moreover, since its original development in the 1990s, IPL treatment has only improved in treating pigmented lesions and photoaging due to technological advancements. Today’s IPL devices can target specific areas with precise accuracy, creating natural results that typically peak in just four to six weeks after treatment.
