Dermatology – South: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Hattiesburg Clinic Dermatology – South offers Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a treatment for brown spots, redness, age spots, broken blood vessels, and rosacea.
IPL devices use multiple wavelengths of light to treat sun-induced changes on the face, including brown pigmentation, age spots and broken blood vessels. IPL is also used to treat the facial changes of rosacea, including redness and broken blood vessels. IPL may be used for these changes on the hands, neck and chest as well. It is safe, non-invasive and is tailored to the individual patient’s skin.
Most patients experience a few days of redness and possible pinpoint bruising after the IPL procedure. Some brown spots may appear darker for a few days, then peel off. You can apply makeup immediately after IPL treatment if necessary.
If you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our providers to see if Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is right for you, please call 601-579-3130.
