Who Is A Good Candidate For IPL?
A good candidate for IPL is someone who has unwanted hair growth, sun damage, age spots, or other skin imperfections. IPL treatment can be used to improve the appearance of the skin and provide a more youthful look. Drs. George Sanders and Stephen Bresnick recommend that IPL treatment can enhance the skin but is not a treatment or cure for certain conditions such as acne.
Where Can I Get Intense Pulse Light Done On My Body?
IPL can be performed on any part of the body. It is ideal for the chest, forearms, and hands. However, it is most often performed on the face to treat the signs of aging or certain skin conditions. Patients may combine IPL with other services as well that are available at Silk, A Medical Spa in Encino, CA, to get more dramatic results and enjoy more noticeable changes in their skin's appearance in the treated area.
How Many IPL Treatments Will I Need?
The number of intense pulsed light treatments needed will depend on the individual and their skin condition. IPL can be performed every four to six weeks until the desired results are achieved.
When Will I See The Results?
The results from the initial IPL treatment will be seen within a few weeks. However, some patients have several treatment sessions spaced a month or so apart, allowing for cumulative results that can last longer. Our team may also make recommendations regarding specific skin care cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and products to maintain the results and keep the skin well-hydrated and beautiful!
How Long Do Intense Pulse Light Results Last?
The results from IPL treatments can last for several months. However, it is critical to note that results may vary from person to person. IPL is not a permanent solution, and touch-ups may be needed to maintain the results. Drs. George Sanders and Stephen Bresnick can educate you on what you can expect from this treatment and how long the results will last.
Are IPL Results Permanent?
IPL results are not permanent. However, they can last for several months. IPL can help to improve the appearance of the skin by addressing issues such as sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Touch-ups might be needed to maintain the results, and these can be performed at Silk, A Medical Spa of Encino, CA, as required to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy and beautiful!
What Can I Expect From My IPL Treatment Session?
During your IPL treatment session, a hand-held device will be passed over the treatment area. The light from the device will be absorbed by the skin, causing the tissue to heat up and break down. This process will help improve the skin's appearance and provide a more youthful look.
What Are The Side Effects Of IPL?
The side effects of IPL are usually minor and temporary. These can include redness, swelling, bruising, and blistering. These side effects typically resolve on their own within a few days. More serious side effects are rare but can include burns, scars, and changes in skin color.
