IPL Q & A

IPL Treatment

What is intense pulsed light (IPL)?

IPL is a cosmetic tool that uses intense, rapid pulses of light to address a wide range of beauty concerns. OWM Integrative Wellness is an integrative and functional medicine practice that offers many services to help you look and feel your best, including the Venus Versa™ treatment system for IPL therapy for natural skin revitalization.

What does IPL treat?

OWM Integrative Wellness provides IPL for photorejuvenation, addressing the effects that aging, stress, and sun exposure have on the look of your skin. The OWM Integrative Wellness team uses IPL to treat:

  • Irregular pigmentation on the face, hands, chest, and arms
  • Sun spots, liver spots, age spots, and brown spots
  • Melasma (patches of darkened skin on the cheeks or forehead)
  • Rough, uneven skin tone
  • Spider veins and broken capillaries
  • Rosacea (skin condition that causes redness on the nose, cheeks, and forehead)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores

Using varying wavelengths of light delivered in rapid pulses, IPL heats and destroys the pigmented cells in your skin. Your body removes these damaged cells from the area, improving your skin’s tone and texture. 

OWM Integrative Wellness uses IPL for laser hair removal.The health and wellness practice also provides chemical peels for skin rejuvenation. Chemical peels evenly exfoliate the outer layer of skin, revealing the younger, healthier skin underneath.

IPL Treatment

What happens during IPL treatment?

Spa providers at OWM Integrative Wellness will customize your IPL treatment plan based on your beauty goals. They review the details of your treatment at your consultation, so you know what to expect.

While you relax in the treatment chair, your provider cleans your skin with an antibacterial agent. They place the cosmetic tool over your skin and activate the device. IPL treatments take 15-45 minutes. 

What happens after IPL treatment?

IPL at OWM Integrative Wellness is noninvasive and nonablative so that you can resume your normal activities after your session. You can expect some redness immediately following your IPL treatment, but this resolves within an hour.

You may see improvements in the look of your skin after your first IPL session. To get the best results, the team at OWM Integrative Wellness recommends a series of 3-6 treatments set at three-week intervals.
