What is IPL?
Patients who are concerned about the appearance of sun damage or dark spots on their skin may be good candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL & DVL) therapy at Avanti Medical Center. A photofacial is an effective treatment for pigmentation and vascular lesion problems on the face and neck. IPL/ DVL uses intense pulses of light energy to target hyperpigmentation and ignite the natural healing process and boost collagen production. As the added nutrients take effect, you should see a healthier appearance, enhanced tone, and fewer discolored spots. While a photofacial is a noninvasive treatment option, it can be very effective and can produce amazing outcomes for your complexion. Our Lehi, UT team employs advanced technology to perform IPL /DVL treatments and can provide a skin assessment to see if this solution can help you achieve your skin goals.
"Life changing! I had searched for answers for over 12 years! Kellie McFall and all of her staff are so good to work with! Everyone is friendly and welcoming. It is a breath of fresh air to finally have a dr. who listens to my symptoms and opinions and provides treatment based on those symptoms and how I am responding to treatment, not just based on test results!!!! Symptoms I had struggled with included fatigue, weight gain, depression, debilitating brain fog, anxiety, low stamina, muscle stiffness, symptoms consistent with hypothyroidism, and many more. Thyroid tests were always within 'normal' range, so no dr.'s would try medication for that. Psychologists had tried multiple combinations of medications to improve my mental health symptoms and it helped somewhat. No matter what tests I begged dr.'s for, the results always came back in 'normal' range, but I still didn't feel good. I knew something was off. Then I was introduced to Avanti Medical Center and the science of bioidentical hormone therapy! I felt a difference within weeks of the first treatment and I knew the root cause of all of my symptoms was finally being addressed!! Thanks Avanti Medical Center, for changing my life!!"- M.N. / Google / Oct 05, 2020
OUR IPL TECHNIQUE
Patients preparing to receive IPL/ DVL therapy are asked to skip sun exposure and self-tanners for at least 2 – 4 weeks prior to the appointment. You should stop using certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A, a few days before each procedure. We may also ask you to avoid taking blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications a week before the treatment to decrease your risk of developing bruises. A full series of IPL/DVL treatments are recommended to produce natural-looking improvements to the appearance of your skin. Each session helps to fade sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Noticeable improvements can generally be seen after one IPL treatment, but your final results might not develop until a full series of treatments is completed.
