3 Factors to Consider Before Opting for an IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment

Are you looking for a fast, safe, and effective way to enhance the overall appearance of your skin? Here are some signs that a customized IPL photorejuvenation treatment could be the right solution for your aesthetic needs.

Photorejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL), a non-laser light source, to correct pigmentation issues, such as sun damage, brown spots, and rosacea, as well as minimize pore size and fine lines. 

Some of the benefits of this treatment include: 

  • Reduction of hyperpigmentation and skin redness
  • Enhanced and more even complexion
  • Radiant and more youthful skin
  • Stimulation of collagen production
  • Improved blood circulation to the treatment area and reduction of inflammation

How to Determine if IPL Photorejuvenation is Right for You

IPL is a gentle, light-based treatment that can successfully address different skin issues. It is well-tolerated among patients, and many patients find it effective in helping them reach their aesthetic goals. 

However, only your skin specialist can determine if photorejuvenation is truly right for you. Here are some factors they will take into consideration when making treatment recommendations:

Who Are Good Candidates for IPL Photorejuvenation? 

Although IPL photorejuvenation is effective for a range of skin types, your skin specialist may suggest a different treatment if you have a darker complexion. 

Good candidates for this treatment are those who  have: 

  • Fair skin that is not affected by tanning
  • Reasonable expectations for treatment outcome
  • Reasonably elastic skin
  • A preference for non-invasive cosmetic treatments instead of surgical procedures 

Note: You should avoid this treatment if you are pregnant, using Accutane, or have used Accutane within the past six months. 


What Part of The Body Does IPL Photorejuvenation Work For? 

IPL photorejuvenation is a very versatile treatment and it can be used on nearly any part of your body. It is often used on the face, neck, and decolletage, but can also be used to address issues on the: 

  • Feet
  • Arms
  • Back 
  • Legs
  • Hands 

During a consultation, your skin specialist can assess your concerns and aesthetic goals and determine if this is a suitable procedure for you. 

What Concerns Does IPL Photorejuvenation Treat?

One of the most important factors to consider when determining if this is the right treatment for you is what concerns it can address. Photorejuvenation might be right for you if you are looking to: 

  • Eliminate the appearance of sun damage (e.g. freckles, sun spots, or discolouration) 
  • Minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Address melasma and broken capillaries beneath the skin 
  • Minimize large pores 
  • Improve the overall appearance of your skin 

In general, patients tend to notice an improvement in their skin’s texture and evenness, and it will appear more youthful, resilient, and healthy. If you have any of the above skin concerns, then IPL photorejuvenation could be a great choice for you.
