Intense pulsed light (IPL) phototherapy is a safe, effective cosmetic treatment for the skin. Your dermatologist can use an IPL phototherapy device to target the melanin beneath the surface of the skin, which breaks up areas of discoloration. IPL phototherapy can also help your skin look younger and give your face a refreshed appearance because it stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin.
This popular dermatology treatment is ideal for many patients with a variety of skin issues. A dermatologist can apply IPL phototherapy to the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. It’s effective for minimizing the appearance of sun spots, age spots, generalized sun damage, and broken capillaries. IPL is even appropriate for patients with rosacea.
