IPL in Portland, OR

Get Clearer,
Younger-Looking Skin

Non Surgical
Model

Many people are annoyed by the rash-like redness of rosacea, as well as by small red vessels on their face. Others have brown spots or “sunspots” that develop from exposure to the sun, making their skin appear older. Some people complain of fine wrinkling that makes them look older than they are or than they feel. For all of these cosmetic issues, IPL at Portland's Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery can help.

Though certain wavelengths of light, such as ultraviolet, cause damage to the skin, the careful application of specific wavelengths can have a beneficial effect. The technology that drives a IPL treatment pairs this light with other forms of energy to achieve visible results without surgery or the need for down time for recovery and recuperation.

Your IPL Consultation

Though it is not a surgical procedure, a IPL is still a treatment that requires education so patients are aware of its unique features and can be sure they are making the choice that is right for them. Men and women considering this treatment will first meet with a member of The Waldorf Center team to get questions answered and determine whether IPL is the ideal option to get the desired results. Patients will learn what the procedure entails, what it can and can't do for skin, and what to expect before, during, and after the treatment.

Your IPL Treatment

The IPL laser is capable of treating a number of skin issues. It utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) and radiofrequency energy to maximize treatments. By utilizing different settings, this treatment can deliver energy into the skin, where it is absorbed by areas with darker pigment, which can greatly reduce brown spots and the redness from rosacea. It can also collapse little red vessels (sometimes referred to as spider veins) that are unnecessary for proper circulation and can draw unwanted attention on a person's face. There are also skin-tightening settings that can improve the skin tone of the face for a special event.*

Recovering After IPL

Oftentimes, the pigmented spots or vessels that are treated with a IPL become darker after a treatment session, but these can easily be covered with makeup. Over a few days to a week, treated spots/vessels resolve and fade to leave you with youthful, healthy-looking skin. It is important to practice sun protection after any light or laser treatment of the skin.
