Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL)
in Tampa, FL
Look Good. Feel Good.
xeo® Intense Pulse Light therapy (IPL) sends more than one wavelength of light to improve the texture and color of your skin. It is commonly classified in the same category as laser resurfacing treatments, but it does not use a laser to treat skin conditions. You can have an IPL if you experience any of the following skin conditions:
- Brown spots/age spots
- Hormonal dark spots
- Discolored skin
- Fine wrinkles
- Redness from rosacea
- Spider veins
- Unwanted hair
- Stretch marks
How does it work?
Cosmetic laser treatment, in general, selects the uneven or abnormal tissues or hair follicles by comparing their color to the surrounding skin tissues. The single-wavelength light and its heat will be targeted to the selected area and destroy the modules that give color to the skin.
Laser treatments work best if there is a big contrast in color between the damaged skin or hair and the surrounding skin. For tattoo removals, patients with pale skin and dark-inked tattoos will get the best results. Thick and dark unwanted facial hair, body hair, and hair in the bikini line and sensitive areas are easier due to their distinct color contrast.
Laser treatments also get rid of damaged skin to stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. As new skin cells emerge, the skin will start to look younger and smoother.
