Intense Pulsed Light Overview

Hattiesburg Clinic 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 also be used for these changes on the hands, neck and chest. 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.
