At Clarus Dermatology, we see a lot of patients for IPL treatment to reduce the number of brown and red spots on their skin. Contrary to what you might think, the L in IPL does not stand for laser but rather light. IPL is short for Intense Pulsed Light; the treatment involves a very high-powered broadband light - imagine a really bright flashlamp. IPL is an incredibly powerful device that can burn the skin with relative ease, which means that it can be quite dangerous in untrained hands - for this reason it is one of the most litigated cosmetic procedures. We always recommend seeing a board-certified dermatologist for your skin care needs and IPL is absolutely no exception. For this patient, Dr. Neil Shah personally performed the entire procedure using two skilled passes of the light at a relatively high energy setting in a single treatment to achieve the results that you see in the images.
