IPL

What is IPL?

IPL or intense pulsed light therapy is a non-ablative skin treatment that uses a gentle, yet effective, beam of light to treat a variety of skin conditions without disrupting or damaging your healthy surrounding tissue. 

Which skin problems can IPL therapy treat?

Allure Medical uses IPL therapy to reduce the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Acne
  • Benign vascular lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Varicose veins
  • Broken capillaries
  • Redness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Sun damage

IPL technology can even minimize the appearance of unwanted hair on your face, neck, back, underarms, bikini line, or legs.

How is IPL therapy different than laser therapy?

While IPL therapy and laser therapy are similar and often treat the same skin conditions, there are a few key differences to consider. 

Laser therapy uses one wavelength of light, while IPL therapy delivers several wavelengths of scattered light — similar to a photo flash. This allows IPL to penetrate the deepest levels of your skin without disrupting the surface layer, resulting in less skin damage overall.

As a result, your pigmented skin cells absorb the light and convert it into heat, which breaks up your unwanted pigment.

What is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser treatment that reduces the appearance of an array of skin conditions without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. Not only does Laser Genesis stimulate collagen production to firm and tighten skin, it shrinks pore size, increases cell turnover speed, and improves skin tone.

Allure Medical uses Laser Genesis to treat acne, acne scars, stretch marks, brown spots, rosacea, age spots, sun damage, uneven skin texture, redness, and more.

Which IPL therapy treatments should I consider?

Allure Medical offers a variety of IPL therapy treatments, such as:

BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy 

BBL is a type of IPL therapy that uses varying wavelengths of light to break up dark pigment caused by sun damage, deep red veins, uneven skin texture, and age spots.

PhotoFacial

An IPL PhotoFacial is a gentle treatment that Allure Medical customizes to your unique skin type. The goal of a PhotoFacial is to give you flawless skin without surgery. It breaks up hyperpigmentation, treats sun spots and age spots, and evens out your skin tone and texture. PhotoFacial is also effective on the hands and chest.
