What is BroadBand Light or intense pulse light Therapy?
BroadBand Light or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) therapy can improve the aesthetics of your skin by helping it appear younger and smoother. The Harmony DYE VL by Alma Lasers combines two trusted technologies, Pulsed Dye Laser and Intense Pulsed Light to create the new "Gold Standard" for treatment of a variety of skin conditions. The DYE VL module utilizes Alma's proprietary IN-Motion protocol which help maximize patient comfort and minimize risk of unwanted side effects. The therapeutic light energy from the IPL gently warms the skin as it targets pigment and breaks it up so it can come to the surface and flake off, and can also stimulate collagen production. Patients with an array of skin conditions may benefit from IPL, as it functions to fade out unwanted freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels, vascular lesions and sun damage. Our IPL is an aesthetic treatment that can be added to other services we offer to meet your skincare goals. At Xage Medical Spa in Provo, UT, we offer IPL to patients at the recommendation of our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter. Call for a consultation today.
BroadBand Light™ Therapy Reviews
"I love Xage Medical Spa! I have received 6 laser hair removal treatments from another medical spa, and I did not get as good of results compared to just 3 at Xage. It hurts like crazy wherever you go, so you might as well get the best results, and I personally believe you will get it at Xage. Not to mention, their staff is so friendly and helpful. I especially love Stephanie! Honestly, don't go through all the pain and money to not get the best results--Xage is the place to go."- L. / Google / Apr 18, 2015
"This is a great, great office. Initially, I went to their office because I had a Groupon for laser hair removal. I'm so pleased with my results and with my experience with Xage that I'm planning on doing more laser hair removal with them--even though they are in Provo and I live in Salt Lake City. Katie was a wonderful laser technician and the lady at the front desk on Saturdays is so nice. She was always friendly and answered all of my questions, since it was my first time doing laser hair removal. Honestly, if you aren't sure where to go, pick Xage. I can't say enough good things about their office!"- P.N. / Google / Apr 18, 2015
"Soooo loving my experience with Stephanie who does laser hair removal for me. I’ve noticed a considerable difference. She also shaped my brows for me. Wow, I’ve learned SO MUCH from her and she treats me with… More such professionalism and great care. Lisa and Roby (so?) are fabulous at the front. They’re approachable, relatable, helpful and just as knowledgeable of the procedures I’ve had done, so they’ve been able to help calm my fears about these procedures that I’ve had no experience with and they have helped prepare me for it all. They’re fabulous. Love the office, the staff and the care. I’ll have my daughters and my sister come here. I won’t go anywhere else."- L.T. / Facebook / May 30, 2018
A great candidate for IPL is anyone who has hyperpigmentation or unevenly textured skin. These symptoms could be caused by acne, sun damage, damaged capillaries, or rosacea. IPL can also help to make the skin appear more youthful by initiating the production of collagen. Your sessions of IPL can be used as a treatment and/or maintenance regimen for a variety of skin conditions. Prior to undergoing treatment, we will help you understand how IPL technology may help you.
How Does ipl Work?
After creating a suitable treatment plan, the settings of the IPL device will be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Before starting the therapy, your eyes will be protected with eyelid shields. We will then lightly pass the handpiece over your skin while focusing on the treatment sites. The amount of time needed for your therapy will change depending upon the skin condition and whether any other services were included in the IPL treatment. This treatment ordinarily takes about one hour or less.
What to Expect
Following the IPL therapy, a soothing serum may be applied to your skin. Our team may also offer post-treatment care directions. You will need to limit your exposure to the sun after IPL. Your skin will be highly sensitive to sunlight. Most of our patients are able to return to their regular daily routine. Results from IPL may be noticed in 2 – 6 weeks following the first treatment, but the best results will be seen after repeat IPL sessions. We will make a recommendation on the number of IPL sessions you will need to achieve your desired outcome. After the procedure, you will continue to age and to be affected by the sun and elements. You can return to our office periodically for touch-up treatments to maintain the healthy glow your treatments can bring.
