How does IPL work?

Viora IPL targets and eliminates unwanted hair, and minimizes age- and sun-related imperfections, while tightening sagging skin that develops over the years. IPL is a nonsurgical treatment and less intense than lasers that often require significant recovery time.

The therapy works by exposing your face and other treatment areas to beams of intense pulsed light. The light beams are transmitted with a specialized handheld device at Selah MediSpa.

The light penetrates beneath the surface of your skin. The bursts of light are converted into pulses of heat energy, which force melanin, vessels, and hair follicles to break apart. Over time, your body flushes away damaged pigment, restoring a more even skin tone and giving your complexion a firmer, more youthful look.

The V-IPL PCR™ technology provides multiple configurations, making it an optimal treatment for light, medium, and dark skin tones.

What does IPL treat?

Selah MediSpa performs Viora IPL for an array of aesthetic treatments. IPL can tighten skin, reduce hair, and improve the appearance of:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Large pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne
  • Scar
  • Facial veins

During your consultation at Selah MediSpa, a team member discusses whether IPL is the optimal treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

How does IPL reduce hair?

Viora IPL at Selah MediSpa offers a more permanent solution to hair removal with painless and consistent results. IPL treatment is effective in removing hair from your:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Bikini line

IPL’s hair removal solution offers a significant reduction in hair growth at the beginning stages of treatment. IPL works on all skin tones and hair colors, including darker skin tones and dark hair.

Does IPL hair removal hurt? 

IPL is not as painful as waxing or lengthy as electrolysis. You may feel a slight stinging or pinching sensation when your Selah MediSpa provider applies the treatment device to your skin, but your treatment doesn’t require anesthesia.

How long does IPL hair removal take?

The treatments are quick enough to squeeze in over your lunch break. Because your hair grows in cycles, you typically need 3-6 treatments to reduce your unwanted hair.

What is an IPL photofacial?

Viora IPL photofacial is a light-based therapy to tighten your skin and minimize the appearance of acne, sun-damaged skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment destroys acne bacteria and lessens inflammation. The result is a clearer, firmer, healthier-looking complexion.
