Intense Pulsed Light Q & A

What is intense pulsed light therapy?

IPL therapy uses varying wavelengths of light to gently repair skin damage and eliminate unwanted pigmentation, such as redness and brown spots. It’s a noninvasive treatment that can help you achieve clear, elastic skin without surgery or injections.

How does intense pulsed light therapy work?

IPL therapy with the Optima Photorejuvenation system is FDA-cleared to rejuvenate your skin. Your provider can customize each treatment to suit your unique skin type and texture to expertly target your concerns. 

Once the treatment begins, varying light pulses penetrate the deepest layers of your skin without damaging the surface layer. Much like laser therapy, this light energy converts to heat to repair damage, while stimulating your skin’s collagen and elastin production. These proteins are responsible for strengthening your connective tissues to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles.

Over time, your body’s lymphatic system naturally removes the treated tissues to eliminate imperfections and skin damage.

What can intense pulsed light therapy treat?

Peach Skin & Laser uses IPL therapy to enhance the tone and texture of your skin. This gentle, yet effective, treatment can help remove:


  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Birthmarks


If you’re tired of topical creams and serums that don’t work, IPL therapy can give you the results you’ve always wanted.

How many intense pulsed light treatments will I need?

Each IPL therapy session takes around 45-60 minutes, making it the perfect lunch break treatment. Although every IPL plan is unique to your skin, most people need at least two to seven sessions, spaced two to four weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.

Many superficial imperfections, such as age spots and freckles, can fade in as little as two treatments.

What can I expect from my intense pulsed light sessions?

The aesthetic specialists at Peach Skin & Laser prioritize your comfort during every IPL treatment. To begin, they apply a cooling gel to minimize discomfort. When the light penetrates your skin, it should feel warm, but not painful.

Your skin may look red immediately after the treatment, but that redness typically subsides within a few hours. It’s important to avoid direct sunlight after your treatment; however, you can apply makeup and resume your normal activities on the same day.

Intense pulsed light therapy is a gentle, effective treatment that can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin. To learn more, call Peach Skin & Laser, or schedule an appointment online today.
