There are younger looking faces in Mill Creek thanks to IPL (Intense Pulsed Light/Photofacial) treatment

Our skin is a part of us that is constantly exposed to the outside world. As time passes, we may begin to notice marks that we were not born with. These may come from years spent under the warm rays of the sun, from environmental conditions, including wind and harsh temperatures, minor injuries, or the natural process of aging. At North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics, we offer a number of innovative treatments to treat the signs of aging effectively so that you can always feel your best. A highly popular treatment is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light/Photofacial), similar to lasertechnology, with which patients from Mill Creek and surrounding areas experience amazing results.

What is IPL?

IPL, also known as a Photofacial, stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL works in a similar fashion to laser, but has a few distinctions worth considering. IPL light is a more broad-spectrum light than laser and is also safer. This allows for the treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions, with minimal, if any, discomfort or downtime.

What to expect from IPL treatment

IPL treatment is fully customized to each patient. Our staff is extensively trained on the IPL device, and we are a national training center for this technology, training dermatologists and plastic surgeons around the state.

IPL is often a suitable treatment for sun spots (age spots/liver spots); red spider veins on the face, neck and chest from rosacea or sun damage; redness of the cheeks, nose and chin from rosacea; , dark patches on the cheeks, forehead and neck from melasma; as well as unwanted hair.

Numerous benefits come from gentle, non-invasive IPL treatment, including:

  • Rejuvenation of skin affected by sun damage and aging.
  • Improvement of skin discolorations and skin tone.
  • Improved texture with diminished rough patches and decreased pore size.
  • Greater skin laxity through the stimulation of elastin and collagen.
  • A refreshed, radiant glow.

Treatment with IPL technology is effective at giving you skin you feel confident in. Every patient is unique, and may require multiple, customized treatments for optimal results. This procedure may also be used as a part of a comprehensive skin-enhancing treatment plan that incorporates other options such as dermal fillers.
