What is Virginia IPL?
IPL or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is the process of using light energy and a light-emitting device to target your skin concerns, whereby intense pulse light treatments deliver complete rejuvenation. It is not the same as using a laser.
Light energy emitted from the device is absorbed by your pigment, known as melanin, and red blood cells in your dermis to generate heat. That heat then causes a superficial injury to the skin. This injury is short-lived and helps to activate your skin’s natural healing process without actually harming your facial tissue.
IPL does not cause scarring, infection, or other skin complications. It’s completely non-invasive, which means there are no incisions, unlike plastic surgery.
