Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses light energy to target the lower levels of the dermis and resolve the redness associated with rosacea and changes to the skin caused by the sun.

Filters inserted into the handheld portion of the device allow the clinician to adjust the wavelengths and customize treatment according to your needs.

The doctor and the experienced team at MedEstics conduct a thorough evaluation and discuss the procedure with you, the expected outcomes, and the aftercare required before your first IPL session. MedEstics uses a highly advanced IPL unit known as the Broad Band Light (BBL), which has 2 flash lamps for more stable energy output and a cooling unit that soothes the skin during treatment. This cooling feature enables the operator to perform a more aggressive treatment course that provides faster results, while still protecting your skin from harm. Most patients experience only mild discomfort with no downtime from work following the procedure.
The number of treatments required to achieve the desired results depends upon the overall condition of your skin and what issue you wish to treat with IPL. Many patients require multiple treatments to achieve their goal. The BBL technology used at MedEstics typically reduces the number of IPL sessions you’ll need when compared to facilities using less advanced equipment and techniques. The doctor’s commitment to using the best equipment available and his expertise in IPL achieves excellent results for his patients.
