IPL – Intense Pulsed Light

IPL Laser Technology for Laser Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a laser technology used for hair removal and skin rejuvenation. IPL treatments rely on a process known as selective photothermolysis to treat unwanted hair and skin issues such as:

  • Acne
  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea
  • Skin hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Scar management

How IPL Works

Unwanted hair and damaged skin can be embarrassing, affecting confidence and self-esteem. Painful waxing and electrolysis, hair removal creams and topical skin treatments are messy and costly, and offer only temporary results. IPL, offered by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña in Naples, Florida, can remove hair, reduce hair regrowth and smooth your skin for beautiful results that last.

IPL lasers use a full spectrum of light wavelengths, sending safe light energy to break up hair pigments and disrupt the growth cycle. IPL lasers also improve skin texture, clearing up a distressed complexion by increasing collagen and firming skin tissue. IPL is fast, gentle, painless, and effective.

IPL is a popular, cost-effective solution for treating large areas of skin, such as the back and legs, in far less time than standard laser treatments.

Benefits of IPL

  • Works well on all hair and skin types
  • Treats large areas quickly and easily
  • Reduced risk of pigmentation changes and scarring
  • Reduced discomfort and pain when compared to other types of hair removal
  • Combines lasting results similar to electrolysis with the speed of shaving
  • Effective on all body areas to produce hair-free, younger looking skin
