Discover the Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Discover the Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) | Afterglow Skin CareYour face is your ambassador. If you desire healthier, more youthful-looking skin, there’s no need to undergo invasive surgical procedures. Our experienced physician, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, and our skilled team offer Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments at our state-of-the-art practice. This innovative technology uses the power of light to refresh your appearance and smooth away common signs of aging.

IPL treatment is designed to enhance your skin tone and texture with little or no downtime. In addition to being minimally invasive, IPL therapy can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, this innovative approach can be used to reduce unwanted hair in virtually any area of the body, including the face, underarms, legs, and bikini line.

Your comfort and results are our highest priorities, and IPL therapy typically is well-tolerated by patients. You may feel a mild stinging or pinching sensation in the treated area, but these effects should fade once the procedure is complete.

When you arrive for your initial complimentary consultation, Dr. Ebrahim will determine how many treatment sessions will be necessary to achieve your desired outcome. After the procedure, you should be able to return to normal activity right away. You may experience some mild redness or tenderness in the treated area, but these concerns should subside quickly. You are welcome to wear makeup to cover this effect.

The benefits of IPL therapy should begin to appear after about a week or two. With a series of treatments, the effects can last years. We recommend occasional “touch-up” sessions to help you maintain the results for as long as possible.

For more information about IPL treatment from our practice, or if you would like to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Ebrahim, please contact us today or visit our clinic in person. We look forward to helping you achieve your cosmetic goals.
