Intense Pulse Light Therapy, also known as IPL or photofacial, is a non-invasive procedure that uses pulses of light to treat several skin conditions for aesthetic purposes. At Arizona Dermatology, we use the state-of-the-art Palomar Icon system to provide you with the most effective, yet gentle, skincare treatment.
IPL is an effective treatment for:
- Pigmented lesions
- Vascular lesions
- Port-wine stains
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
IPL therapy uses a skin resurfacing technique to deliver its incredible results. The Palomar Icon system emits high intensity pulses of light that carry a range of lightwaves to the lower layers of the skin. In the process of bypassing the top layers of skin, the high intensity light converts to heat energy and begins breaking down your melanin pigments. The pieces of melanin pigment are then absorbed by your body to lift discoloration. IPL therapy produces visible results with little to no downtime.
