Who Is a Good Candidate for IPL?

Aging and sun exposure can create uneven brown pigmentation and fine red blood vessels on your skin. One way to reduce the uneven appearance is with intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, which use gentle pulses of optimized light to even out your skin tone.

Many areas of the face or body can be treated with IPL. Our patients from Paso Robles, SLO, Pismo Beach, and Santa Maria can now effectively improve the appearance of their face, chest, and hands. Looking your best can be as simple as clearing age spots and unsightly vessels and revealing brighter, more attractive skin.

IPL can improve:

  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Red spots
  • Rosacea
  • Broken vessels
  • Pore size
  • Dark facial hair

IPL works best on lighter skin types.

Dr. Stallman will assess you to evaluate how best to help improve your appearance. You may also consider other anti-aging procedures such as laser skin resurfacingBOTOX® Cosmetic, or injectable fillers.

The IPL Procedure

Our IPL treatments take approximately 15 to 20 minutes and involve little to no discomfort.

Specific wavelengths of light are transmitted through a handpiece, which is gently placed on your skin’s surface. The light penetrates the top layers of the skin and directly targets the damaged and unwanted areas of excess pigment or broken blood vessels.

Depending on the severity of the condition and the desired result, you can expect to get 1 to 3 treatments. The treatment process causes some collagen production, rejuvenating the skin, shrinking pores, and improving skin tone. Some improvements will be visible immediately, and the end result will be skin that has a more youthful, healthy, and younger-looking appearance.

Call today at  (805) 481-3733 or contact us for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this state-of-the-art procedure.
