IPL overview

What is IPL?

Intense pulse light, or IPL, is a unique skin treatment that treats signs of sun damage and aging. Specifically, this treatment minimizes the look of freckles, dark spots, and acne scars. If you have redness or rosacea, it can also help achieve a more even skin tone.

IPL photofacials can minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots for a more youthful look. It also works as a hair removal solution for patients with a high contrast between their hair color and skin tone. 

IPL works by releasing pulses of light with many different wavelengths. Many patients use IPL as an alternative to laser treatment, as it is gentler on the skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for IPL?

IPL is best for patients who have an uneven complexion or hyperpigmentation they would like to correct. Patients should not be pregnant or have an underlying health condition that could interfere with the success of the treatment. For example, patients should not have skin cancer, keloid scar tissue, or excess sensitivity to sun exposure. IPL is also not effective for patients who have very dark skin. 

Patients should have realistic expectations for their IPL treatment. While this photorejuvenation can minimize the look of spots, redness, scarring, and fine lines, it will not dramatically change your appearance.

Benefits of IPL

There are many benefits of IPL photofacial treatment for skin issues. Here are some of the advantages of IPL treatment. 

Lightens Stubborn Spots

Dark spots, acne scars, melasma, and other skin discoloration can be difficult to remove. IPL lightens these spots for a more even skin tone. 

Minimizes Signs of Aging

IPL treatment can also help you look more youthful, as it makes fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable.  

No Downtime

Since IPL is non-invasive, you'll be able to go back to work right away. Appointments take less than an hour to complete, and most patients need two to four appointments to see results. 

Expectations on the Day of Your IPL Procedure

Your IPL treatment will take 30 to 90 minutes to complete, depending on the area you want to treat. Before the treatment starts, we will clean your skin and then apply a topical gel with a cooling, numbing effect. We will also provide protective glasses to keep your eyes safe. We will then use the IPL device to treat your skin. Your skin will feel warm, and you might feel some discomfort. After treatment, you will be able to return to your normal routine right away.

Recovery From IPL - What to Expect After

After your IPL procedure, the treated skin will feel red and swollen for about one week. You will need to avoid going out in the sun during this time. Avoid scratching or picking at your skin, as this will make the irritation worse. If you're using IPL to treat dark spots or scars, you may notice that these spots temporarily get darker. After about a week, they will fade and you'll start to see results. 

You may need multiple IPL treatments to achieve your desired results. We will help you schedule recurring appointments if necessary.

I had amazing results

I have great praise for Dr. Troell, Amy, and all the staff. I interviewed several doctors in the Summerlin area and selected Dr Troell based on his expertise as well as the wonderful service I received from my very first visit. I would highly recommend Dr Troell to anyone seeking high quality results with exceptional service.

Wonderful experience

He always made me feel beautiful and was patient with me through my questions and concerns pertaining to certain procedures. Meeting with Dr. Troell, it's more than just an appointment, it's an experience. I love that when I tell people my age they look at me in disbelief. I have to say that I found MY fountain of youth.. Dr. Robert Troell.

I will continue to go back

I have been to see Dr. Troell for several years now, and had numerous different treatments and procedures from him. He is always professional and his staff is always very friendly. I have never been unhappy with my results and I will continue to go back for treatments.

The IPL treats a broader area of your skin, and penetrates to deeper layers. A laser is much more precise, covering a smaller area. An IPL is most effective for correcting dark spots, acne scars, and redness, while lasers are more popular for hair removal. 

For best results, avoid spending time outside in the sun in the days leading up to your treatment. You should also avoid harsh exfoliants and tanning beds. Don't wear any makeup on the day of your procedure. 

You'll start to see results from this treatment after about one week. 

After your IPL, your face will be red and swollen. Applying an ice pack for short periods of time will help control the swelling. Additionally, make sure to stick to your recommended skincare routine and wear sunscreen when you go outside. 

Insurance Coverage for IPL

Since IPL is a cosmetic treatment, it isn't covered by health insurance. However, there are financing options available to make the cost more manageable. 

As low as $220 / month*

*Based on someone with excellent credit and a loan term of 36 months. Actual monthly payments will vary per individual depending on credit score, loan term and other factors.
