Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used in various skin treatments, including hair removal and photofacials. A handheld flashgun is passed across the skin, delivering a spectral range of light that targets the hair or skin issue. These types of treatments may also be called laser skin rejuvenation, photorejuvenation, or laser resurfacing.

IPL - Not Sure

So I just got an IPL treatment done. It was not as bad as I thought it would be and it was very fast! There was a light then a zap (like an elastic hitting the skin) It's only been 4 days but I haven't noticed any sloughing off of skin or anything. I have two more to go so we will see. The...

I have been instructed to always... READ MORE

Love Her Confidence, Even if It's Not Entirely Earned - San Diego, CA

I wanted an alternative to an eyelift, and had heard about IPL. Dr. Pelle is my dermatologist, based on two factors: 1) I like her and 2) she's in my neighborhood.

IPL M22 for Matted Spider Veins in Lower Legs and Ankles. San Diego, CA

From the get-go, there was something a bit off about this procedure. That a nurse (and not a doctor) would be charging top dollar yet had no answers, was irksome. I also didn't like being charged $200 for 15 minutes, and then have 5 minutes going to jotting down stuff on a piece of paper, and... READ MORE

I had my first IPL on 7/24/2015 and my second on 8/28/2015. I had asked them to use low settings and so far, everything looks okay.

Huge Improvement to my Quality of Life - Chelsea Skin & Laser, NYC

I've been getting IPL done for probably 12 years now. As a kid I had really rosy cheeks, or as the doctor described it, large surface veins. They would flare up all the time, like if I was drinking or spent too much time in the sun, and it was bad enough that I could feel the heat on my face,... READ MORE

Better Results Than Previous IPL's! Newport Beach, CA

I've had IPL a number of times in the past, but never really had any results. However, my opinion of IPL has changed with treatment in Dr. Brennan's office.
