IPL in Washington, D.C.

IPL stands for intense pulsed light, an innovative form of laser therapy used at Georgetown Allure Medical Spa to treat a variety of common skin issues, including acne, pigmentation, and redness. Our state-of-the-art IPL laser machine provides a noninvasive solution for Washington, D.C. men and women who want to rejuvenate their skin and minimize imperfections with precisely targeted treatments. Many of our patients are amazed at the results they see after just one session. To learn more about the benefits of IPL, schedule a consultation at our office.

Georgetown Allure Medical Spa is proud to offer IPL treatments as an option for:

  • Acne Removal: Using high-powered pulses of light, we can eliminate acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, leaving your complexion looking clearer and more radiant.
  • Pigmentation: Our noninvasive approach targets pigment-producing cells in the skin, breaking up melanin while boosting collagen production for a more even complexion.
  • Redness: IPL therapy stimulates collagen production and promotes healing to reduce redness and inflammation without harsh chemicals.
  • Skin Rejuvenation: We can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots by using intense pulsed light to penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen growth, resulting in an overall smoother, younger-looking appearance.

IPL treatments are performed at our Washington, D.C. medical spa and usually take around 30 – 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and other factors. Before starting, our aestheticians will cleanse your skin to prepare it for the procedure. IPL therapy is administered using a handheld applicator that we pass over the skin. The machine emits pulses of light energy that break down cells or bacteria under the skin while stimulating your natural collagen production. You might experience a light snapping or stinging sensation from the machine, but you should not feel any significant pain or discomfort.

Once we're finished, you can get back to your day with no recovery time required. For the first few days following your IPL treatment at Georgetown Allure Medical Spa, we advise taking steps to protect your skin from the sun. You should also avoid any strenuous activities, sources of heat (like hot tubs or saunas), and harsh skin products.

IPL treatments are in high demand because of their effectiveness and versatility. Here are just a few of the benefits that come with IPL therapy at Georgetown Allure Medical Spa:

  • Enhanced collagen stimulation for natural skin rejuvenation
  • No incisions, needles, or discomfort
  • Smooths the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improves the skin's texture and appearance
  • Neutralizes pigmentation and acne-causing bacteria
  • Reduces inflammation and redness from conditions, like rosacea

I have been going to Georgetown Allure now for 4 months.  I have had the laser treatment and the facials.  I have been using the laser wand  at home as well.  The results are visible.  I feel like I look refreshed and my skin looks younger.  I look forward to my visits.
