Both intense pulsed light treatments and laser treatments help to minimize the appearance of dark spots and other imperfections in the skin. IPL treatments are most commonly used for veins and broken capillaries in the skin, as well as brown spots that result from sun damage. Laser treatments are often used more specifically for issues like fine lines and wrinkles. IPL is an ideal treatment if there is a large area of the skin that needs to be targeted, or if you are going for boarder results like overall increased firmness, reduced signs of aging, and diminished blemishes. In contrast, laser treatments target specific, smaller areas of the skin. Your medical professional can evaluate the skin issues that you are experiencing and help you determine whether or not IPL facial treatment in Orange County is ideal for you and your skin care needs.
