IPL is Intense Pulse Light and BBL is Broad Band Light. IPL has many benefits which makes it one of our most popular treatments because it gives an instant boost to the skin. The skin looks more vibrant, radiant, and rejuvenated. The three main targets are reds, browns and collagen.
These light-based technologies are not lasers which go deeper into the skin. IPL can effectively target various superficial skin concerns at once. Targets include brown pigment (freckles, age spots, sun spots, liver spots) and redness (vessels, veins, flushing, rosacea, couperose, “broken capillaries”, spider veins, cherry angiomas, mottled skin, and uneven skin tone).
Collagen is also stimulated in an IPL treatment, which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as gives the skin a “healthy glow” and more homogeneous appearance. This effect is known as Photorejuvenation.
IPL Photorejuvenation can be used anywhere on the face or body and several areas can be treated in the same treatment session. It is a very fast, efficient and comfortable treatment. IPL is better suited for fair skinned clients versus clients with a darker skin type or tan.
The growth and success of Bijou Skin Health Clinic has been greatly attributed to the excellent results achieved throughout the years with IPL. Clients will often send their friends who notice and comment on their “glowing skin” that not only looks younger and healthier but IS Healthier and younger. Extensive studies and research have proven that regular IPL treatments not only prevents cellular aging but also turns back the clock causing the DNA expression of skin cells to reverse back to youthful, healthy state. Literally reversing the aging process.
