IPL against redness on the face
Improves the appearance of the skin by eliminating redness and small veins. Also suitable as couperose treatment and rosacea treatment.
What happens during IPL treatment for redness?
Treatment with a high-quality, medical IPL system eliminates vascular disorders in the skin. It is one of the most effective procedures against fine, diffuse red veins and redness. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a broadband pulsed light source. An IPL attachment tuned to redness emits short pulses of light whose wavelengths are specifically absorbed by red blood vessels. The pigment hemoglobin, which is contained in our blood, absorbs the light and converts it into heat. As a result, small veins are obliterated and then safely broken down. This method can also noticeably improve the appearance of rosacea or couperose.

THE IPL TREATMENT AGAINST RODS PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS
This procedure, also known as rosacea treatment, uses special wavelengths that can be absorbed by the red veins and dilated blood vessels. This process causes the vessels to constrict, which decreases the blood flow and
the redness is reduced.
What you can expect:
- Improved appearance: this procedure reduces redness and vascular disorders such as couperose, rosacea, and can sometimes be used for telangiectasia and spider nevi.
- Quick results: A good result can be visible after the first treatment.
- Customization: The intensity of IPL treatment can be adjusted to the individual needs of our clients to achieve a satisfactory result.
- Alternative to laser treatment: IPL technology is not formally a laser treatment, but a special type of light therapy that uses broader light spectra (wavelengths) and is therefore very suitable for superficial, diffuse redness.

How many treatments are required?
Lasting results are achieved after 3 to 5 sessions at intervals of 3 to 4 weeks. We recommend at least 3 treatments.
How long does it take before the results are visible?
Often, the first improvements can be seen after the first session. However, the result can vary greatly depending on the skin condition.
What are the side effects of IPL treatment?
Although IPL is a safe and gentle treatment method, there may be mild side effects such as redness, swelling and skin irritation, which usually disappear on their own after a few days.
How does the skin look after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, the treated areas will be more noticeable than before. Veins may be more visible or turn purple to black. This effect is intentional and necessary to achieve an improvement.
Is IPL suitable for all skin types?
IPL is suitable for most skin types, but best for skin types I to IV. The classic indication for IPL treatment is diffuse, superficial redness, e.g. the “apple cheeks of Snow White”. IPL should not be used in the case of certain skin diseases or when taking medication that makes the skin sensitive to light.
Behavior after IPL treatment?
Be sure to avoid the sun for the first week after treatment. A suitable sunscreen with SPF 50+ is indispensable. In addition, sports and unnecessary sweating should be avoided for the first three days.
Can IPL be used on darker skin types?
We usually advise against using IPL on dark skin types, as there is an increased risk of burns or pigment shifts. But basically, in any case, it is necessary to work with much less energy, which increases the number of treatments to achieve the desired result.
How does IPL feel?
Mainly, patients feel a warm sensation on the skin. Sometimes up to a slight stinging pain. Immediately after the treatment, it feels similar to a mild sunburn.
What skin care is recommended after IPL treatment?
Mild and moisturizing and cooling products are especially good for the skin after IPL treatment. To achieve even better results, we also offer special serums and creams against redness.
Can this treatment be done in summer?
It is recommended to avoid this treatment during the summer months, especially in high temperatures and strong sunlight. This is because the skin may be more sensitive to sunlight after the treatment, which increases the risk of pigmentary shifts.
