IPL Laser

Are you looking to take years off your skin and help it look revitalized? At Bourhill Plastic Surgery, we have a medical option that can do just that. IPL laser treatment can be used to wash away years of damage and allow your skin to shine.

What Is It?

IPL laser treatment works by releasing many different wavelengths of light onto the skin. These wavelengths are more scattered than traditional laser treatments and can penetrate the down to the second layer of the skin without damaging the top layer. This treatment can be used on any area of your body, however, it will not be as effective on uneven areas.

What Can IPL Remove?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and it can be used to remove or minimize a variety of skin conditions. These conditions include:

  • Freckles.
  • Age spots.
  • Birthmarks.
  • Varicose veins.
  • Sun damage.
  • Wrinkles.
  • Visible blood vessels.

What To Expect

At the initial start of the procedure, Dr. Bourhill will thoroughly clean the area undergoing treatment. Next, a cool gel will be rubbed into your skin before the IPL device releases pulses into your skin. You will be instructed to wear protective glasses for your eyes.

The normal time range for this procedure is between 20 and thirty minutes. It’s normal to feel a slight stingy sensation once it begins. For the best results, we recommend undergoing three to six treatments.

IPL treatment can provide a huge boost for your self-esteem. If you’d like to learn more about this treatment and how it can be used to your benefit, please don’t hesitate to contact us here at Bourhill Plastic Surgery today.
