The Healing Power of Light
For our patients in Rockford, South Barrington, and Palm Beach Gardens, IPL Laser (Intense Pulsed Light laser treatment) can be a rejuvenating, non-surgical way to improve the texture and color of your skin. IPL laser treatments can correct multiple skin conditions, from acne to discolored skin to unwanted hair.
At Pryor Health, our board-certified and fellowship-trained team of doctors and nurses perform IPL laser treatments with care and precision. If you have been struggling with acne, brown spots, discolored skin, or unwanted hair, schedule a consultation with one of our skincare experts to learn if IPL Laser might be right for you.
IPL Laser, also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, uses computer-guided pulses of light to specifically target certain colors of the skin. Like other laser therapies, these high-intensity beams of light heat the skin at the point of contact, damaging the unwanted cells. The body then removes these cells and replaces them with new ones. When the new cells come in, the unwanted blemish or discoloration fades or disappears entirely.
The difference between IPL Laser treatment and other laser treatments is that IPL uses lights of multiple wavelengths at once. These multi-wave treatments allow the IPL clinicians at Pryor Health to target multiple skin conditions with a single treatment.
If you would like relief from discolored, blemished skin, our Rockford IPL Laser treatment may be right for you. IPL laser therapy can effectively treat the following conditions:
While IPL treatment can be a versatile and effective treatment option for multiple skin conditions, there are some situations where you should avoid IPL. IPL treatment is not recommended if you are pregnant, have very dark skin, have skin cancer, or keloids.
At Pryor Health in Rockford, South Barrington, and Palm Beach Gardens, intense pulsed light treatment is only recommended after a thorough skin analysis and discussion of health background during your consultation. We pride ourselves on taking care of you, and that means making sure you are a healthy candidate for procedures like IPL. If you are not, our innovative team can help find other ways to help you reach your skin goals.
If you are interested in IPL Laser Rockford, South Barrington, or Palm Beach Gardens patients' first step is a consultation with the highly trained providers at Pryor Health.
We will assess your condition, listen to your concerns, and craft a treatment plan using IPL Laser treatment to help address them. We will also provide you with information about how to manage your body before and after the treatment to maximize the benefits of your procedure.
On your treatment day, our providers will prepare the treatment area on your body using a gel. You will also receive protective eyewear to make sure the light doesn’t hurt your eyes.
Once the procedure begins, the applicator will be placed directly over the treatment area. Most of our Rockford IPL laser patients say the treatment is relatively painless, though you may feel a slight pinch when the light is applied. The procedure typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. Since IPL laser treatment is noninvasive and requires no anesthesia, you are free to go about your day following treatment.
While IPL laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure, you will likely feel like you’ve had a sunburn on the treatment area for several hours following the procedure. It is also very important to make sure the affected area does not receive sun exposure following treatment. You may experience redness at the treatment site that fades over the next few days.
Before your IPL treatment, your provider at Pryor Health will offer you guidance on how to best care for your skin during this phase. Follow the guidelines they provide to stay protected and ensure the best results.
You should see results within a week or two of your treatment. As your skin heals, the discolored or damaged portions of the skin will flake off, revealing newer, healthier skin beneath.
While you will see results after your first treatment, you may need multiple treatments to reach the desired effect, depending on the nature of your condition and its severity. Your IPL provider at Pryor Health will give you more accurate estimates on the number of treatments you might need to reach the results you want.
