From sun damage to fine lines, IPL laser treatment can often reverse these common skin problems.

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, has become a popular laser treatment that our skin doctorsipl laser in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, and Bridgewater, NJ, use to target and treat a wide range of conditions. IPL offers amazing skin resurfacing and rejuvenation results without the downtime. Here’s what you should know about IPL treatment and what it can do for your appearance:

IPL Treatment Addresses Many Skin Problems

IPL therapy is most often used as an anti-aging treatment, meaning that it targets and reduces those common signs of aging such as sun damage, sun spots, fines lines, and wrinkles. Of course, IPL treatment can also be used to treat:

  • Superficial scars (e.g. acne scars)
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Redness and flushing due to rosacea
  • Visible blood vessels and capillaries
  • Enlarged pores
  • Birthmarks, freckles and age spots
  • Melasma

If you are living in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, or Bridgewater, NJ, and dealing with any of these skin imperfections, our skin doctors can easily treat these issues for you, whether through IPL treatment or a separate cosmetic treatment.

IPL Treatment Stimulates Collagen

Another benefit to IPL treatment, apart from the many skin problems it can treat, is that it also stimulates collagen production. Collagen helps promote skin’s elasticity and firmness. Of course, as we grow older, our bodies don’t produce as much collagen, so by turning to our dermatologists for IPL therapy, you can boost this production and improve your skin’s tightness.

Treatment is Non-Invasive

We know that many patients want to get amazing results but are looking for simple, non-invasive ways in which to do it. IPL treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and most patients will require anywhere from 2-5 sessions to achieve the full results. Those with more severe skin problems may require more sessions.
