It may be possible to permanently rid yourself of hyperpigmentation problems by using IPL, depending on your lifestyle habits (sun exposure, skincare, use of sunblock, etc.). As you age, your skin retains its youthful appearance with IPL treatment. Your physician can estimate how long your IPL treatment will last based on your individual situation.

We will apply a topical anesthetic to help with comfort. After the treatment area is numb, a gel will be applied, and a glass prism will then be placed over the gel and treatment area. An intense flash of light, or pulse, is beamed through the prism to the treatment area.

Typically, only a few treatments are needed. However, depending on the condition, several treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.

Laser light treatment is appropriate for treating age spots, sun damage, and freckles on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and feet.
