Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a state-of-the-art procedure that provides safe, comfortable, and effective laser treatments, with little to no downtime. IPL therapy uses pulses of concentrated light to treat multiple skin conditions. With Dr. Bonnie Furner, IPL appointments are quick, and you can immediately return to work or other activities – looking and feeling refreshed!
IPL (laser) treatments include:
- Laser Photorejuvenation
- Laser Hair Removal
The pulsed light photorejuvenation procedure is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses gentle pulses of intense, optimized light to treat undesirable skin imperfections, such as dark spots and spider veins. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs. The procedure takes as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Many patients see results after only one session, but maximum benefit is seen with a series of treatments.
Laser photorejuvenation can treat:
- Sun damage: Wide areas of pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, and other areas
- Sunspots: Pigmented lesions, also known as age spots
- Rosacea: General inflammation of the cheeks and face
- Spider veins: Individual vessels, which can be red, blue, or purple in color
Laser Hair Removal
The pulsed light hair removal procedure is a permanent hair reduction technique for unwanted hair. Concentrated pulses of light loosen hair and disable the cells responsible for new hair growth in the area(s) treated. We can treat any area except around the eyes, including the upper lip, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest, and back. The procedure is fast and comfortable. Most areas can be treated in under a half hour.
