What does an IPL do?


Sun exposure and genetics play a big part in the production of dark spots, brown spots, and freckles on both men and women. We begin to see signs of sun damage with time. Regardless of skin type or age, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy can improve lackluster and brown spots on the skin.

Treatments are performed in 20 to 30 minutes for an IPL treatment to be completed. After the patient’s face has been cleaned and dried, protective eye shields will be provided. Light pulses will be delivered by a handheld device over the target area to penetrate the layers of the skin. Treatment generally causes a fast, mild, warm snapping sensation with minimal discomfort for most patients. The procedure does not require numbing cream. Brown spots may appear darker initially in the form of a “coffee grind” appearance before diminishing which usually lasts around 3-5 days.

How long do IPL results last?


You will notice sun damage and other irregularities on your skin improve after your first IPL treatment has been completed. IPL treatments at Contour Medical Spa typically produce visible results after the first session, but for the best results, we recommend scheduling 3 – 6 treatments about four weeks apart. When patients care for their skin and keep it protected from the sun, IPL results can typically last for years. With the Limelight Photofacial (intense pulsed light) therapy, patients can achieve dramatic results in a short period of time.

How long after the first IPL will I see results?


Your treated areas may appear pink, shiny and in some instances mildly swollen immediately after your IPL treatment. After a few hours, brown spots and freckles will become darker in appearance before they diminish. If usually requires 3-5 days for the discoloration to fade. Discoloration and sun spots may become darker temporarily or more noticeable. As the skin heals from the inside out, these spots will eventually flake off. The initial results of an IPL treatment can be seen in a week, and the final results can be seen in four to six weeks.
