The primary goal of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is to make the skin tone or color more even. One of the signs of aging is irregular brown and sometimes red discoloration of the skin. The light energy in IPL is absorbed, causing the generation of heat that damages or destroys the structure that holds the color – the sun spot or dilated blood vessel. The body sees the structure as damaged and takes it away. This leaves the skin tone more even and homogeneous. Collagen begins to regrow to reduce wrinkles and improve texture.
Things to expect from IPL:
1.It evens out skin color
2.It brightens the skin and give it a youthful glow
3.It adds back small amounts of collagen near the surface of the skin to give a slight improvement in texture.
