What Is IPL Treatment?

Meaningful improvement in pigmentation following 2 IPL treatments.

A LimeLight Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment is a medical-grade, non-invasive light-based device, designed to combat age spots, freckles, rosacea, all without abrading the skin’s surface. There is no downtime, as it works by heating the pigment and the blood in the top layer of your skin to reduce the discoloration and promote a more even skin tone. It can be performed on light to medium color skin.

IPL Treatment is for anyone wanting to use an innovative way to quickly, safely, and comfortably improve their skin’s texture, tone, and color. It can help treat photo-aged skin, remove age spots, redness caused by broken capillaries, and can treat most benign brown pigments.

If you want to achieve a younger and healthier appearance, with a treatment that requires no downtime, schedule a consultation with Dr. Malone at Malone Facial Plastic Surgery today. We want to help you steal the spotlight and live in the limelight!

What Does The IPL Treatment Process Look Like?

An IPL Treatment begins with your initial consultation with Dr. Malone. During this consultation, we will go over the in and outs of the procedure and create a schedule with you. The best results occur after multiple treatments, hence the importance of knowing how far apart your appointments need to be.

Once we have determined an IPL Treatment appropriate for the skin conditions you are wanting to treat, and your scheduled date arrives, we will provide you with protective eyewear, and apply a cold gel to the treatment areas. We may also consider shaving the treatment area if excessive or dark hair is present, in order to prevent any unwanted adverse effects.

During the treatment, we will apply the smooth, glass surface of the IPL handpiece to your skin, which feels cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered to the skin surface, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation – this is typically described as more ‘uncomfortable’ than painful, but we recognize that everyone has a different pain tolerance. We have multiple ways of mitigating any potential pain derived from the procedure and will discuss all options with you during your consultation.

What To Expect After IPL Treatment?

After the treatment session is complete, you can immediately return to your everyday activities, as IPL Treatment is a no-downtime procedure. Immediately following your session, you may notice a slight reddening of the treatment site, though this will subside within a few hours. Signs of sun damage and age spots temporarily darken, but over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off, and your skin’s complexion will clear.

Most patients tend to see the most significant improvement within 2 to 3 weeks of their IPL Face Treatment. You will notice that your complexion appears clearer and younger-looking. Particularly so with the XEO LimeLight IPL Treatment, you will notice gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results.

How Does IPL Treatment Work?

An IPL Treatment with the XEO LimeLight works by sending a series of gentle pulses of visible light to the surface of your skin. In a series of treatments, these pulses of light target the surface of your skin to effectively eliminate redness, broken capillaries, large pores, rosacea, and fine lines.
