What is IPL Treatment?
IPL Treatment (Intense Pulsed Light) also known as IPL Photofacial is a non-ablative light treatment that improves the appearance of photo-aged skin, brown and red skin pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.

IPL Treatment uses light energy to target and remove pigmented or damaged skin cells. The light is converted to heat energy as it penetrates below the surface of the skin, breaking down the damaged cells so they can be naturally removed by the body. An advantage of IPL Treatments is the device’s ability to target larger areas of skin in a single pulse compared with narrow beam, small spot size lasers. The number of IPL treatments required varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of the concern being treated.
IPL can be used anywhere on the face and body. Popular treatment areas are the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
The sensation felt during an IPL Treatment is that of heat and has been likened to a pinching sensation, similar to a rubber band being snapped on the skin's surface. To make it as comfortable for our Lexington IPL Treatment patients as possible we offer Pro-Nox, an analgesic delivery system to ease pain and anxiety during treatment.

IPL Treatment is a safe treatment in the hands of a highly trained expert. If you are on blood thinners or pregnant you should avoid IPL Treatment.
Following your IPL Treatment, your skin may be pink or red and may feel like you have a sunburn that typically lasts between 4 to 8 hours. Ice packs can be helpful to relieve any discomfort following treatment. Swelling is also a common side effect of IPL Treatment and usually lasts for several days after treatment. If skin pigmentation was addressed during your IPL, you may find your pigmented areas will get darker and then peel away 7 to 10 days after treatment. At Aspire Med Spa, we strive to provide the best IPL Treatment Lexington has to offer.
