How Does IPL work/What to Expect?
IPL is an intense pulsed light therapy treatment. When targeting benign pigmented lesions, the light absorbs the melanin. Those pigmented cells become denatured, darken and rise to the surface. Epidermal melanin will darken and may leave a “coffee-ground” appearance, This usually exfoliates in an average of 7-14 days. When targeting vascular lesions/hemoglobin, the light is absorbed by hemoglobin in the veins and the heat produced causes photocoagulation. Heat is transferred to the vessel wall, which ultimately destroys the vessel destroying the appearance of veins. New veins may appear over time. Clients can experience mild redness as well following treatment, but will be provided with thorough after care and products.
How many will I need?
Results are best seen in a series of multiple treatments. Package pricing is available at Bel Viso, however, treating pigmentation requires a medical grade skincare regimen designed for your skin conditions by one of our master estheticians. Our providers also recommend combination therapy when treating stubborn pigment, by combining IPL with lightening peels, microneedling, antioxidant treatments, results are optimized.
