Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Does your skin suffer from pigmentation or redness?  Intense Pulse Light can be the answer. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a non-invasive, highly effective, and often a well sought-after procedure at Embrace Skin. IPL uses rapid pulses of light to treat brown and reds in our skin from chronic sun exposure, or from skin conditions like melasma and rosacea. IPL can also even skin tone and help with acne. 

The treatment is often 20-30 minutes long with minimal downtime. We often recommend 3-6 treatments to see optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What Happens If I Stop PRP?
    Discontinuing platelet rich plasma treatment may result in the regression of restored hair. We often recommend maintenance once a year after your initial few treatments. The certainty of maintaining results varies greatly from person to person, depending upon individual response to the treatment.
  • Can You See Results After 1 Session of PRP Therapy?
    You may notice improvements after only one or two sessions of PRP therapy. While the outcome can differ from person to person, irrespective of age or physical condition, most individuals tend to experience benefits from their PRP procedure.
  • What Are the Side Effects of PRP?
    There are minimal side effects to PRP because we use your own body's platelets. Similar to blood drawn at the lab, there may be minimal discomfort, bruising and swelling. PRP therapies, utilizing platelet-rich plasma, have been widely used across various contexts of medicine for many years.
  • How Can I Maintain My PRP Facial Results?
    If you follow the instructions for taking care of your skin after the PRP treatment, you can start noticing the best results around three months after the first session. Once you've reached that point, you can plan for more PRP facial treatments, either with or without microneedling, to maintain the improvements. What's great about PRP treatments is that they enhance your body's natural healing abilities, so you can book follow-up sessions as soon as you see your results.
  • Does PRP Regrow Hair Permanently?
    No, PRP treatment does not provide a permanent solution for hair regrowth. However, it can effectively decrease the progression of hair loss and stimulate new growth in previously barren areas. This therapy can also lead to substantial enhancements in hair thickness and density. For hair loss, we typically recommend 3-5 treatments.
  • Who Should Avoid PRP Injections?
    PRP Injections are usually safe for many people but not recommended if you have the following medical conditions: Active Hepatitis C ActiveCancer Active HIV or AIDS Unstable Angina Anemia or Severe Hypovolemia Active Infection on Your Skin
  • Who Should Avoid IPL?
    While IPL treatment is safe, there are specific situations where it may not be suitable. Therefore, IPL might not be ideal for you if: You experience sensitivity to light. You have recently tanned your skin, whether through sunlight exposure, tanning beds, or tanning creams. You are using a retinoid cream or on isotretinoin (e.g Accutane). You have an active skin condition to location being addressed. You are pregnant. You have a skin resurfacing disorder. You have keloid scar tissue. You have tattoos or permanent makeup. You have certain skin conditions such as open wounds, active infection, or active skin cancer.
  • Dose IPL Remove Hair Immediately?
    No, IPL does not remove hair immediately. After getting IPL, the hair follicles get damaged but stay in your skin, mostly at the top layer. As your skin renews itself, these damaged follicles are pushed out, so it might seem like the hair is growing back. But don't worry; within one to two weeks, the hair will fall out naturally.
  • What Are the Side Effects of IPL?
    Side effects of Intense Pulsed Light Treatment are generally mild. It is common to see mild redness post procedure. Patients treating sun spots will experience mild peeling post procedure as the sun spots gently fall off. Other side effects which are extremely rare include: Change Color Crusty Skin Blistering (very rare) Bruising
  • What Is IPL Treatment Used For?
    IPL treatment is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reducing redness and pigmentation. Its objective is to provide your skin with a youthful appearance. IPL is particularly great for brown sun freckles and facial redness caused by rosacea and sun exposure. It is also a great treatment for unwanted hair growth!
  • How Will I Feel After My Treatment?
    After your treatment, your skin might feel slightly warm, akin to a sunburn, and may have mild redness for several hours to a day. We recommend sun protection measures after the procedure. We find most of our patients can resume regular activities after their procedure (with good sun protection of course).
  • Dose IPL Remove Browns and Reds to the Skin Permanently?
    IPL is a great treatment to reduce browns and reds currently on your skin. However, with on-going sun exposure, pigmentation and redness will return. Hence, our skin care professionals will recommend an excellent and personalized skin care routine to maintain your results longer. It is also recommended to maintain your initial results with IPL sessions once every 1-2 years depending on your lifestyle and skin findings.
  • What Happens If You Stop IPL?
    We do not recommend you stop your IPL therapy after just one or two courses, as this may not show effective results. Usually, you can see noticeable results after the third session depending on the skin condition treated and location. In addition, our professionals will develop a maintenance program to maintain your results.
  • What is Belkyra treatment?
    Belkyra is a well-known treatment for reducing a double chin without needing surgery. It works by getting rid of fat under the chin. It uses a natural substance called deoxycholic acid, which helps break down the fat.
  • Is Belkyra Permanent?
    Yes, Belkyra injections are permanent fat loss. When you get a Belkyra injection, it destroys fat cells. Once those cells are gone, they can't store fat anymore. However, future weight gain might create new fat pockets in the area. In that case, a maintenance injection may be recommended.
  • How Do You Reduce Swelling After Belkyra?
    To reduce swelling after Belkyra double chin injections, you can consider these guidelines: Follow your doctor's advice and take antihistamine pills you can buy without a prescription. Use pain relief pills you can buy without a prescription. Massage the area around your lymph nodes gently. Put a cold pack (ice wrapped in a cloth) on the area you're treating.
  • What Are the Side Effects of Belkyra Injections?
    After getting the injection, you might have some swelling and bruising, which is normal. Swelling is the most common side effect and is expected and could last for a few weeks. The swelling is an indication that fat cells are dying off. Along with swelling, you might also have bruising, discomfort, itchiness, and redness, but these are usually not severe. Some people might feel numbness or tenderness under their chin for up to 2 months. After the procedure, you can go back to your normal activities, including work. However, it's best to avoid intense exercise for a few days because it could make the bruising worse and make the swelling last longer.
  • How Many Belkyra Treatments Will I Need?
    You and your skin care professional will decide how many treatments you'll need to achieve your desired results. Most people get the results they want after two sessions, but some might need up to six sessions, with each session being at least one month apart.
  • Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Belkyra?
    Pregnant or breastfeeding women of if you have serious liver or heart issues, you should avoid this treatment. For patients with significant loose skin and jowls, this treatment might not be suitable for you. Instead, you might want to consider a neck lift. Thus, we recommend a consultation first prior to proceeding with the treatment.
