The Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) therapy is a noninvasive tool that can be used to reverse the signs of photoaged skin. A handheld lamp is placed on the skin surface that emits a broad spectrum of light wavelengths, hence this treatment is also known as photorejuvenation. The treatment should consist of three to six sessions spaced 2-3 weeks apart. 

 

Indications for IPL are vascular malformations (telangiectases), facial hypertrichosis (facial hair especially in women), melasma, post acne marks, and some birthmarks..
