IPL Treatment Explained

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a versatile and non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique. It involves the use of broad-spectrum light pulses to target specific skin concerns. At Santa Monica Eye Medical Group, we harness the power of IPL to effectively address a wide range of skin conditions, helping you achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance..

How Does IPL Work?

During an IPL treatment session, a specialized device delivers rapid pulses of light to the targeted area. The broad spectrum of light emitted consists of multiple wavelengths that can be adjusted according to the specific skin condition being addressed. The light energy is absorbed by the chromophores in the skin, such as melanin (pigment) or hemoglobin (red blood cells), or in the eye, such as abnormal blood vessels or inflammatory cells.
Upon absorption, the light energy is converted into heat, which selectively destroys or reduces the targeted cells or structures. For example, in the case of skin rejuvenation, IPL can target melanin to fade hyperpigmentation or stimulate collagen production to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Common side effects of IPL treatment include temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. Some individuals may also experience temporary darkening or lightening of the treated skin, which usually resolves within a few weeks.

"Very friendly staff and knowledgeable optometrist. They are helpful and courteous without being pushy or trying to force you to buy something you're not ready to buy yet. The optometrist was very professional and did a great job explaining the changes in my prescription and the new lenses I'd have to choose from as my previous brand is no longer on the market. 5/5 would recommend to anyone needing a good eye doctor in Los Angeles"
