Toledo Intense Pulse Light (IPL) skin treatments for sun-damaged or blemished skin.

Intense Pulse Light technology provides a treatment that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light.

Anesthesia Requirements for IPL

An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required.

Length of IPL Skin Treatment

Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4 to 6 sessions.
The IPL procedure takes about 20 minutes.

Toledo IPL Treatment

IPL is performed in our Toledo plastic surgery office.

Side Effects of IPL

Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur. Also, the skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will return back to normal within a few weeks.

Recovery From IPL

Following treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimize the risk of complications.

Our full service Bella Via Skin and Body Therapies Day Spa provides a wide range of post-surgical treatments and comprehensive care for those seeking anti-aging medicine and holistic skin and body care.
