Intense pulsed light (ipl)
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment, using the MAX G handpiece by Cynosure, is recommended for Vascular Lesions including spider veins (telangiectasis), rosacea, hemangioma, angioma, and port-wine stain for a wide range of skin types. Additionally, benign pigmented lesions such as sun damage, acne, freckles and age spots.
In addition to evening the skin, collagen is also stimulated and pore size reduced.
What is a Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
How does it work?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is designed to treat various skin discolorations in gradual and gentle ways, while eliminating downtime after treatment.
It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to treat the entire face.
For more comprehensive results, multiple treatments are often necessary, but the actual number of treatment sessions may depend on the condition of the skin treated.
When multiple treatments are needed, it is recommended they be scheduled at 4-6 weeks intervals.

What can I expect?
It generally takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Recovery times are minimal, with patients going back to work or daily activities right after treatment. Immediately after treatment there will be mild redness, and some of the freckles or dark spots will initially get darker immediately after treatment, but can be concealed with makeup. Individual variations can occur in recovery times and we would not recommend scheduling any treatment immediately before an important event.
Initial and temporary slight darkening of facial freckles and blood vessels is a sign of successful treatment and should disappear in a matter of days.
All regular activities can be resumed immediately after treatment.
It is strongly advised to minimize or avoid sunlight or tanning. We also recommend daily use of a high-SPF (15+ Sun Protection Factor) sun block with micronized zinc to better protect your skin before and after treatments. Additionally, we can recommend specific skin products and give additional customized treatment advice in our office.
