IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a laser treatment that is used to treat lesions on the skin that have been caused by environmental skin damage and aging. The laser works by generating an intense beam of light. The beam focuses its energy on a specific site on the skin where the light from the laser is absorbed by red blood cells carrying oxygen and melanin. This causes decomposition by heat of damaged cells while leaving healthy cells intact. There is very little postoperative care needed – usually just application of an ointment. Final results from the IPL treatment for vascular lesions should be evident in 10 to 14 days, and 2 to 3 weeks for pigmented lesion.
