The Benefits of Intense Pulse Light Treatments

Aging and sun damage can take a toll on your skin, creating dark spots, sagging skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, one of the treatments offered by your Rancho Cucamonga and Glendora, CA, dermatologist, Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu of Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center, can help you improve your appearance.

How IPL works

IPL uses short bursts of light that reach the deeper layers of skin without harming the outer layers. The treatment uses multiple wavelengths of light to rejuvenate skin and eliminate dark spots. IPL treatments are ideal for a variety of skin tones, and safe, quick, and virtually painless.

Whom IPL can help

Your Rancho Cucamonga and Glendora skin doctor may recommend IPL therapy if you have any of these skin issues:

  • Lines and Wrinkles: Wrinkles may begin to appear as your collagen level declines over time. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. IPL treatment prompts your body to produce more collagen, which will help minimize lines and wrinkles.
  • Sagging Skin: Improving collagen production with IPL also helps tighten sagging skin on your face, jawline, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas.
  • Broken Capillaries and Spider Veins: IPL treatments break up the pigments that make spider veins and broken capillaries noticeable.
  • Rosacea: Although facial flushing may come and go at first, redness may become permanent eventually if you have rosacea. The treatment gets rid of broken blood vessels, eliminates redness, improves skin texture, and reduces flushing.
  • Pigmented Skin: IPL offers an excellent way to remove age spots, dark patches of skin, and freckles. The laser light breaks up clumps of dark melanin in spots and patches. When the clumps are eliminated, your skin color looks more uniform.
  • Dull Skin Texture: IPL renews your skin and gives you a healthy, glowing complexion.
  • Acne: Are you frustrated because you can't get rid of your acne? Pimples form when your pores become clogged with skin oil. IPL treatment shrinks oil-producing sebaceous glands, reducing the amount of oil they can make.
