Why we love Intense Pulsed Light or IPL

IPL, Intense Pulsed Light is the most powerful weapon against skin ageing.

We have a number of anti-ageing treatments available today. These include anti-ageing supplements, vitamins, lotions, potions and hormones. What is striking is that none of these reverse skin ageing and prevent skin ageing to the extent that IPL does.
We have been using IPL photorejuvenation for many years and patients typically remark how well their skin looks. The effect on improved skin tone, complexion blending and brightening is seen within weeks. This is not all thought, when patients come back a few months or years later you can see a healthy glow to the skin, improved texture, reduced fine lines, wrinkles and pore size too.

There is now available peer reviewed scientific literature showing that regular maintenance IPL treatments functionally rejuvenate skin and delay skin ageing. IPL treated skin looks more youthful and healthier. Regular maintenance treatments enhance this effect even further. Many doctors have also observed reduced incidence of skin cancers in IPL treated skin.

A recent study at Stanford showed that IPL treated skin showed favourable changes at genetic level. A very powerful observation that came out of this study is that IPL treated skin shows gene expression patterns of a younger skin. Not only is IPL treated skin looking younger, it is genetically getting younger too! These changes are also seen at a microscopic level. IPL treated skin shows less pigmentation, redness and elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition.

We now have the technology and considerable experience of using this technology effectively to repair the appearance of damaged skin, delay and help prevent signs of skin ageing and also possibly reduce the risk of skin cancers in the treated skin. It works very well on the face-photofacial and non facial areas.

In my opinion if you are going to choose one treatment for your skin health-it has to be IPL.
