If You Could Turn Back Time…

Burbank IPL Laser Treatment at The Skinn Suite

Sunny days can be filled with good memories. But they can also leave their mark on your skin. IPL Laser Treatments are an excellent choice for those wishing to reduce visible signs of skin damage caused by aging and environmental factors. This non-ablative form of light therapy reaches beneath the surface of the skin to break up hyperpigmentation and stimulate collagen production for overall toning and texture improvement. At Skinn Suite in Burbank, we carefully assess your needs and provide a treatment plan tailored to you. Read on to learn how you can turn up your radiance with IPL!

The Gentle Way to Improve Your Skin

What is an IPL Laser Treatment?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a skin rejuvenation technology that directs short blasts of light waves into your skin to target specific concerns, including fine lines, sun damage, broken capillaries, and other forms of hyperpigmentation. Often referred to as Photofacial, IPL emits a broad spectrum of light wavelengths, which are more diffuse than the single spectrum put out by laser devices, which can lead to a gentler treatment experience. Because it targets pigmentation in the skin’s deeper layer without disrupting the top layer, IPL Laser Treatments come with less downtime while providing impressive improvements in the appearance of your skin

A Broad Spectrum of Benefits

What are the benefits of IPL Laser Treatment?

IPL is a non-invasive procedure with little to no downtime. It can improve the look of your skin in several areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, back, and hands. Sessions are brief, often taking thirty minutes or less. IPL Laser Treatments target and diminish the appearance of several common skin concerns:

Fades Hyperpigmentation: Targets specific pigments in the skin to reduce the appearance of sun spots, age spots, freckles, melasma, rosacea, and redness caused by broken capillaries.

Targets Vascular Lesions: IPL Laser Treatments can be used to break down and minimize the appearance of spider veins and broken capillaries.

Reduces Acne: IPL Laser Treatments can help fight the source of inflammatory acne by killing the bacteria responsible for breakouts.

Smooths Out Skin Texture:IPL Laser Treatments may stimulate collagen production, helping to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and atrophic acne scars.

Spotlight on You

Your IPL Photofacial Procedure

IPL Laser Treatments are delivered as you recline in a comfortable position. The process is quick, usually taking about thirty minutes. Your aesthetic specialist will cleanse the treatment area and then direct the IPL device at your skin, delivering pulses of broadband light into the dermis. Most Burbank IPL Laser Treatment patients describe the feeling as a mild tingling sensation, often likened to the snap of a rubber band, as the light penetrates the skin's surface. What follows is a soothing warmth that signals the technology at work beneath the surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting cellular renewal.

It’s Time to Love Your Skin Again

IPL Laser Treatments Recovery and Aftercare

Following IPL Laser Treatments Burbank patients may experience mild redness and warmth in the treated area, akin to a mild sunburn. These effects usually fade within a few hours to a day. You should avoid direct sun exposure and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with high SPF to protect your newly treated skin. Some people notice a darkening of pigmented spots or a slight crusting.

This is a positive sign that the IPL is targeting and breaking down pigmentation. Over the following days, these spots may darken before gradually flaking away, revealing clearer skin beneath. Keep your skin hydrated with a gentle moisturizer, and refrain from picking at any flaking areas. Caring for your skin gently during this time promotes the best results. 

Way to Glow!

IPL IPL Laser Treatments Results

Following an IPL Laser Treatments, the cellular turnover process begins, and spots of hyperpigmentation begin to break down. Within a week or two after the first session, individuals often notice a subtle reduction in redness, diminished spots, and a more even skin tone. As the treatment progresses, typically over several sessions spaced a few weeks apart, the full benefits become increasingly evident. Sun damage, age spots, and vascular concerns fade, revealing a clearer, smoother complexion. Additionally, IPL stimulates collagen production to enhance elasticity and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The cumulative effect of these changes? A radiant, youthful glow that helps you love your skin anew!
