What is intense pulsed light therapy?

IPL therapy uses painless pulses of light to reduce bothersome signs of aging and create healthy, beautiful, even-toned skin. IPL treats various skin pigmentation issues to restore youthful beauty without surgery, incisions, needles, or recovery time. The LA Medical Clinic specialists are highly trained in IPL therapy and have many years of experience.

  • Vascular lesions
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage

  • Spider veins
  • Skin blemishes

Is IPL therapy right for me?

The LA Medical Clinic team determines if IPL therapy is right for you after discussing your symptoms, medical history, and desired results. They examine your skin in areas that concern you and tell you what to expect during the procedure.

What happens during IPL therapy?

During IPL therapy at LA Medical Clinic Inc, you rest comfortably while a specialist cleans your skin and numbs it if needed.

You wear glasses over your eyes to protect them from the light while your provider applies IPL energy to the treatment area. Each IPL therapy session may last 20-40 minutes, depending on the size of the areas treated, but every patient has unique needs.

What should I expect after IPL therapy?

After IPL therapy, protecting your skin from the sun and avoiding tanning beds is important. You might notice slight warming, swelling, redness, or crusting of treated skin during the healing process.

Pigmented spots may darken during the next day or two, but your skin tone becomes clearer in the weeks after the procedure. Unwanted facial or body hair begins to fall out during the next few weeks and months.

To experience superior results, you might need multiple treatments or additional aesthetics services. Follow up with the LA Medical Clinic team as directed to schedule your next treatment and call the office with questions you may have.
