Excess hair, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and broken blood vessels can get in the way of smooth and radiant skin.

Fortunately, IPL offers women and men a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted stubble and discoloration, without any downtime or discomfort.

So, is IPL treatment right for you?

Here’s everything you need to know about this light-based procedure, including IPL cost, effectiveness, and more.

What Is IPL Treatment?

IPL, also known as intense pulsed light or photofacial, is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve skin tone and texture and eliminate unwanted hair from the face and body.

How Does It Work?

During IPL treatment, a broad spectrum of light-based energy is used to target excess melanin in skin, pigment in hair follicles, and hemoglobin in blood vessels.

When these chromophores absorb IPL energy, it is converted to heat and neutralizes skin discoloration. It also weakens and damages hair follicles to prevent future regrowth.

What Concerns Can IPL Address?

IPL can be used to remove excess hair from the underarms, bikini line, arms, legs, back, chest, abdomen, shoulders, neck, and face.

It’s also able to minimize or eliminate age spots, sun damage, acne, freckles, birthmarks, broken blood vessels, and rosacea for a clearer and more even complexion.

How Much Does IPL Treatment Cost?

Cost of IPL treatment can vary based on the number, size, and location of treatment areas. The extent of damage can also impact procedure price.

With that being said, the average cost of IPL ranges from $700-$1200.

IPL Effectiveness

IPL has proven to be a very effective treatment with a high rate of patient satisfaction. Most individuals note visible improvement in skin discoloration and hair growth following their first session.

However, for optimal hair removal results, a series of six-to-12 treatments, spaced six-to-eight weeks apart, is recommended.

To achieve desired skin rejuvenation, most patients benefit from four-to-six IPL treatments, scheduled four weeks apart.
