How Much Does Intense Pulsed Light IPL Treatment Cost?
One of the biggest cosmetic concerns for many people is their skin, particularly the skin on their faces. As a person ages, their facial skin can lose its youthful appearance and result in various issues, including hyperpigmentation and pigmented lesions.
There are many ways to address such cosmetic issues. By far, one of the most popular and effective solutions are IPL laser treatments. RenewMD’s team of cosmetic experts offer IPL laser skin resurfacing to patients from their full-service medical spa in Reno, NV.
About IPL Laser Treatments
IPL or “Intense Pulsed Light” treatments are also known as photofacials. IPL treatments aim to improve facial skin color and texture without the need for invasive surgical procedures. It’s an innovative cosmetic treatment and one that can fix various facial skin complaints.
They work by applying light energy (lasers) to target specific areas of the facial skin. Quick bursts of light energy help to rejuvenate the skin by breaking down pigments and discolorations, all of which will eventually become absorbed by the body.
All IPL treatments are safe to have, and sessions typically take around 30 minutes to complete. Patients can expect to see their desired results up to eight weeks from their last treatment session.
Average Cost of IPL Treatments
It’s difficult to give an exact price for an IPL treatment because each patient has different cosmetic concerns they wish to address. An average cost for Intense Pulsed Light treatments can range from $349 to almost $649.
When you elect to have an IPL treatment, you should keep in mind that many factors can influence the cost (more on that in a moment). Some patients may also pay more than average prices if they combine an IPL treatment with other cosmetic therapies.
Factors that Can Influence Your IPL Treatments
One point to consider when determining the cost of your IPL session will be the treatment area. Some patients have minimal cosmetic concerns, while others might have a few to tackle.
The thing about IPL treatments that is you may require several follow-up sessions to treat existing areas or deal with neighboring ones. Other factors that can influence the cost include post-treatment medicines and if patients want extra IPL treatments.
Am I a Candidate for Intense Pulsed Light Treatments?
IPL treatments are a form of cosmetic laser skin resurfacing. People make good candidates for such treatments if they have specific skin complaints on their faces, such as:
- Age spots;
- Unwanted facial hair;
- Discolored skin;
Intense Pulsed Light treatments are also ideal for patients experiencing “spider” veins, redness from rosacea, and dark spots on their face due to hormonal changes.
You shouldn’t have an IPL treatment if you’re pregnant or have a skin condition. It’s also inadvisable to have IPL therapy if you have skin cancer, severe scarring, or sensitivity to light.
