Those who are exposed to the sun for long periods of time, usually suffer from brown and red discoloration of the skin. These are better known as sun spots, or age spots and it is what makes the skin look several years older.
IPL can minimize this kind of discoloration to the point that it can make the skin tone appear brighter and healthier. This is because IPL heats up and destroys the structures that cause pigmentation in the surface of the skin. It is important to note that not all IPL machines are created equal. Some are only able to treat skin types I-III while others, like the Venus Versa can safely treat the darker types IV + V.
IPL treatments can utilize a different range of wavelengths of light that target the brown discoloration. This kind of discoloration occurs over time, usually after several years of sun exposure. Furthermore, in some cases, filters are used to cut off the wavelengths of light that are deemed to be harmful, especially for darker skinned patients. The filters reduce the risk of damaging the normal pigment of the skin.
