IPL in Birmingham and Grand Rapids
At the Bengtson Center, skin rejuvenation using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) gives Birmingham and Grand Rapids patients a safe, effective treatment to erase sun damage, reduce redness (rosacea), minimize blood vessels or capillaries, fade brown spots, treat acne, and more. Although IPL “photofacial” sessions typically take less than 30 minutes and require minimal or no downtime, the results are impressive and typically last for years.
WHERE SMART & BEAUTY MEET
What Is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy?
IPL photorejuvenation uses high-intensity pulses of light energy to close and remove visible vessels and repair damaged cells in your skin. IPL treatments also stimulate the production of new cells and collagen. The Bengtson Center offers this treatment option for men and women whose skincare goals include one or more of the following:
- Minimize redness due to fragile capillaries or rosacea
- Fade brown spots, age spots, freckles, or melasma
- Smooth wrinkles and fine lines
- Tighten pores and improve skin texture due to scarring or acne
- Reduce visible spider veins and capillaries
What Can You Expect Following Your IPL Treatment?
During the brief treatment sessions, most patients experience minimal discomfort and little to no downtime. Any remaining redness, swelling, or irritation can be reduced by applying cold packs to needed areas. In a few hours, these symptoms will resolve. Brown spots will first darken and then gradually peel and flake off, revealing your clearer skin underneath, while skin texture and appearance will continue to improve for months following treatment. For best results, most patients require a series of 3 to 5 treatment sessions with reasonably priced packages.
During your initial consultation, you will receive a thorough skin analysis with our Canfield VISIA® Complexion Analysis, complete information regarding potential risks, and post-treatment care instructions to ensure optimal results.
