IPL Photorejuvenation: A friend to the baby oil generation
Do you have fond childhood memories of lying by the pool slicked in baby oil? If you are a member of the baby oil tan generation, IPL Photorejuvenation may be your new best friend.
Intense Pulsed Light Photorejuvenation removes early signs of aging and sun damage by removing brown spots, fine lines, redness and even restoring an overall brighter and younger looking appearance. While the technology is still relatively new, IPL is widely available in spa’s and doctors’ offices across the US and Canada.
Is IPL the most effective therapy for you?
Before scheduling IPL therapy, ask your doctor if it is the most effective option for you. Due to the very subtle healing nature of IPL, some doctors still prefer lasers to IPL because laser therapy is more direct providing quicker and deeper tissue response.
The success rate with IPL is very operator dependent so before you schedule an appointment be sure to ask for references and for the clinician’s personal success rate with the therapy.
