What is IPL?

IPL is a proven, successful, and non-invasive treatment option to remove dark spots. While IPL removes dark spots and hyperpigmentation, it has multiple benefits, such as treating and eliminating the following conditions. 

  • Broken blood vessels/spider veins/and capillaries
  • Birthmarks/hemangiomas/and other lesions
  • Age spots
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Freckles
  • Stretch marks
  • Superficial scars
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Blotches

Santa Monica Dermatology Group, located in Santa Monica, CA, can provide an intense pulsed light treatment without anesthesia because this procedure is comfortable and pain-free. This light therapy enters the deeper layers of skin without affecting the outer layers. 

There is no downtime and hardly any healing time while the deeper skin layers heal. This treatment process can take 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the condition in which this process is used. 

Another consideration is how many treatments you need to achieve the desired results. If you require multiple treatments, our doctor schedules further treatments a few weeks apart. 

IPL is a popular skincare treatment option due to the many benefits this treatment holds. You may see a younger appearance with an overall skin tone and texture improvement because it removes your skin problems, such as those listed above.  

As we age, our body's collagen reserves become depleted because the body does not make the collagen needed to keep your skin looking youthful. Thus, as you age, you notice fine lines and wrinkles. IPL stimulates collagen production. More collagen improves the skin texture and firmness.
