We offer IPL skin rejuvenation procedures at Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN. Learn more about the benefits of IPL treatments below.

IPL Laser Treatment

An IPL laser treatment is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses strong pulses of laser light to make changes to your skin cells. These intense pulses of light can destroy damaged skin cells while stimulating the growth of new ones.

IPL treatments can be used to resolve some of the most common complexion issues, including:

  • Rosacea
  • Age spots
  • Large pores
  • Sun damage
  • Dull complexion
  • Broken capillaries
  • Uneven tone and texture

IPL laser treatments are non-surgical, outpatient procedures that can be completed in as little as one hour. You will not have any incisions or sutures as part of your IPL laser treatment.

The Benefits of IPL Treatment

IPL laser treatments are popular because they offer a wide range of benefits. The following are just some of the most common benefits you can experience when getting IPL skin rejuvenation.

Faded Dark Spots

Whether it’s from sun damage or the natural aging process, hyperpigmentation is a skin concern that many people have.

IPL photorejuvenation can fade the dark spots on your skin to create a more even complexion. During an IPL treatment, the pulses of laser light directly target hyperpigmented skin cells and destroy them, leading to a lightening of dark spots.

Smaller Pores

Enlarged pores are a common concern for women and men. As you get older, your skin loses collagen and elastin and may start to become lax. Your pores may appear to be more open and enlarged.

IPL laser treatments can produce a tightening effect within your skin by stimulating new collagen production beneath the skin’s surface. This causes pores to appear smaller and tighter.

More Even Tone and Texture

Uneven skin tone and texture can be caused by scarring, hyperpigmentation, and other skin care concerns. If you have uneven tone or texture, an IPL laser treatment can resolve each of these issues and create a more even tone and texture overall.

Vibrant Complexion

Do you struggle with dull, lifeless skin? Loss of vibrancy is one of the most common complexion concerns, and many people look to over-the-counter products to resolve it. However, dull skin typically needs to be addressed from the inside out. An IPL laser treatment can rejuvenate your skin by promoting new skin cell growth.

Fewer Broken Capillaries

Vascular concerns like broken capillaries and spider veins affect many people, especially as they start to age. If you have broken capillaries or other vascular lesions, an IPL laser treatment could make a difference. The intense pulses of light used during treatment target your vascular lesions to remove them.

More Youthful Skin Overall

Fine lines and wrinkles are an expected part of the aging process, but most people do not welcome them. While there are creams, moisturizers, and serums that claim to resolve these signs of aging, few of them actually work.

IPL treatments are a more effective way to address age-related changes because they can boost collagen production and generate new skin cells.

Common Questions About IPL Treatments

If you are new to IPL treatments, you may have questions or concerns. The following are some of the most frequently asked questions about IPL laser treatments.

Do I Need a Consultation for IPL Treatment?

Every client must schedule a consultation prior to having an IPL laser treatment. During this consultation, we’ll determine whether IPL is the best treatment for your skin. We’ll also examine your skin and any complexion concerns to confirm that IPL can address your issues. If not, we’ll discuss alternative options.

How Do I Prepare for an IPL Session?

One of the best things about IPL laser treatment is that there’s little to no preparation required. All you need to do on the day of your procedure is wash your face with a mild cleanser. Do not apply any topical products to your skin before your session.

How Long Does IPL Treatment Take?

IPL rejuvenation is not a long process. The entire treatment takes about 45 minutes to one hour to complete.

What Does IPL Treatment Feel Like?

You will not feel any discomfort during your IPL session. Most patients report feeling warmth from the device.

When Will I See the Results of My IPL Treatment?

The results of your IPL treatment will not be visible immediately after your session. It will take a few weeks to see a difference in your skin. This is because it takes time for cell turnover to occur. It can also take about four to six weeks to see the results of new collagen production.

Do I Need Multiple IPL Sessions?

Some clients may need more than one IPL session to see optimal results. Depending on your skin concerns, you may need anywhere from two to five sessions spaced several weeks apart.
