Reset your complexion with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. IPL is a precision-based treatment that targets dark spots, fine lines, and other common skin concerns, while simultaneously rejuvenating your entire complexion. IPL can make impressive improvements in both the tone and texture of your skin, helping you say goodbye to signs of aging and hello to renewed beauty and confidence. At Total Rejuvenation Medpsa of Alpharetta, our expertise and devotion to providing exceptional experiences translate into results that help you feel rejuvenated from the inside out. We strive to deliver the best IPL Alpharetta has to offer.
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, is a revolutionary skin treatment that uses high-intensity, broad-spectrum light to target specific chromophores (color-absorbing molecules) in the skin. The IPL device emits a broad spectrum of light that contains various wavelengths. When this light is applied to the skin, it is absorbed by specific target chromophores, depending on the treatment goal. The light energy is absorbed by the target, which then converts into heat. The heat damages or destroys the targeted cells without affecting the surrounding skin. IPL not only targets pigmentation issues but also stimulates the production of collagen. This helps improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
IPL has the versatility to selectively target several skin concerns while providing overall rejuvenation. It is primarily known for its effectiveness in diminishing the appearance of redness, sun spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation, such as vascular lesions. At the same time, collagen production prompts cellular regeneration, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines and other textural issues like depressed acne scars. With a series of three to five sessions, the results can be impressive, with signs of aging and skin damage visibly reversed.
We invite you to schedule a consultation to learn more about IPL and our other treatments and receive recommendations personalized to your skin type and specific aesthetic goals.
We love building relationships with our clients and take the time to get to know you and educate you about various services so that you can make informed decisions about treatments. Our passion for aesthetic care is much more than skin-deep. Our goal is to help you radiate the beauty you feel within and embrace your most confident self.
During a treatment session, your Alpharetta IPL aesthetic specialist uses the IPL handpiece to deliver short bursts of intense, broad-spectrum light to the treatment area. The light is absorbed by target cells or pigments in the skin. The IPL device is adjusted to the specific settings required for your skin concerns, including the light intensity and wavelength. You may feel a stinging or snapping sensation during the pulses, but it's generally very tolerable. The procedure typically lasts about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Multiple sessions may be needed for best results, with a few weeks between each session.
Recovery after an IPL session is fairly simple, and our Alpharetta IPL patients can resume most regular activities immediately. It’s common to experience temporary redness and, in some cases, mild swelling, which typically subsides within a few hours to a couple of days. Skin will be more sensitive and susceptible to sun exposure, so it is important to wear sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight in the days following an IPL session.
You may notice darkening or peeling of treated areas as the skin sloughs off imperfections and heals itself. We will give you post-session care instructions, such as gentle skincare routines, and are here to support you as your skin heals and your beautifully refreshed complexion is revealed.
IPL can often provide astonishingly good results, making it a popular option for minimally invasive rejuvenation. It is known for its ability to target and improve or eliminate issues like sunspots, age spots, redness, and uneven skin tone. With a series of treatments, you will see remarkable improvements in your skin's texture, clarity, and overall appearance. Skin tone and texture are evened out, and fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. Your skin will appear more healthy and radiant, with a smooth texture and a youthful glow.
We may recommend three to five sessions spaced approximately three to four weeks apart for concerns like sunspots, pigmentation issues, or general skin rejuvenation. At your consultation, we will provide you with a customized treatment plan based on discussing your goals and carefully analyzing your skin quality and concerns.
We will always assess your skin type and tone to match you with treatments that will be safe and effective. IPL tends to work best on fair to light brown skin tones, while darker skin tones are more prone to pigmentation changes. We care deeply about delivering excellent outcomes that inspire you to greater confidence and offer many treatments that can be tailored to your needs. Not sure where to start?
