Look your best instantly without the downtime!
Baja MediSpa is proud to offer its clients the innovative intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. Through IPL, we can perform a number of skin treatments more efficiently than other conventional methods. With the guidance and experience of Dr. Sara Lea Salas, Board Certified Dermatologist, you can be sure that our IPL or intense pulsed light treatments in Tijuana, Mexico are both effective and safe for your skin.
What is IPL?
Intense pulsed light treatments involve the use of pulsed, polychromatic, high-intensity non-coherent light. The light used is typically within the wavelength ranges of 500 nm to 1200 nm, depending on treatment needs. While similar to laser hair removal methods, IPL is a vastly different technique that relies on wave-like light pulses from a lamp instead of a focused monochromatic laser.
What can IPL treat?
Thanks to its variable spectrum, intense pulsed light treatments can be used to target various chromophores in the skin, making them effective in treating skin discolorations. Other skin disorders that intense pulsed light can treat include acne, vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, sun-induced dyspigmentation, and Poikiloderma of Civatte. Additionally, IPL can stimulate the skin’s collagen production to make it appear more vibrant, and the procedure can tighten large pores on the patient’s skin.
IPL is perfect for treating brown age spots formed by broken capillaries both on the face and hands, another area that shows aging. Such pigments aggravate as a person ages, and they can make individuals appear even older than they look. With IPL, the capillaries are repaired, leaving the patient with a fairer skin tone.
How safe is IPL?
With Dr. Sara Salas handling the procedures, intense pulsed light treatments are very safe and adaptable. Since the treatment can be easily adjusted to suit a patient’s needs, IPL does not have to be uncomfortable. Moreover, intense pulsed light treatments utilize cooling systems such as cryogen sprays, contact cooling, and refrigerated air in order to cool down the patient’s epidermis. No down time and could be done on your lunch hour!
