Using IPL Treatment to Improve Sun-Damaged Skin

Enhancing the skin’s appearance and health is a top priority for many adult men and women. It is not unusual for Cassie Lane of Richmond, Virginia, to speak to patients about ways to reduce the appearance of the signs of aging on the face and chest, such as the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. With the help of our team, many patients can enjoy the advantages of state-of-the-art services to improve skin health and appearance, including IPL treatment.

What is IPL Treatment for the Skin?

Cassie Lane describes Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy as a skin treatment that uses pulses of light to improve the appearance of the skin. IPL can be used to treat various conditions, including:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Red flushing/diffuse redness
  • Skin freckles/pigmentation

The skin absorbs the light from an IPL device, which causes the tissue to heat up and break down. This process helps improve the skin’s appearance by reducing wrinkles, age spots, and other blemishes.

What Can I Expect from my IPL Therapy Appointment?

Our trained medical professionals perform IPL therapy at Cassie Lane Aesthetics. The procedure typically takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. We will assess your skin and prescribe a safe and effective laser treatment for your skin.

Are there any Aftercare Instructions to Follow?

It is imperative that you avoid sun exposure for at least 2 weeks before and after all laser treatments. Immediately after the procedure, your skin will be slightly red and swollen. These side effects typically last for a few hours. It is essential to avoid any sun exposure and wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for at least 2 weeks after the procedure. Following the aftercare instructions given by our team of professionals is the best way to ensure proper healing and recovery.
