5 Reasons to Get an IPL Treatment

As we approach the end of summer and the start of a new year, your skin deserves (and is probably in desperate need) of a fresh start. One of the best ways to accomplish that is with an IPL treatment with me at Eros Beauty and Wellness in San Diego, CA. IPL facials heat damaged skin cells with the pulsed light to create an internal healing effect. I use IPL treatments for my patients who are looking to treat sun damage, age spots, broken capillaries, and other forms of irregular pigmentation. Continue reading for five reasons why I continue to recommend IPL treatments to my patients looking to rejuvenate and refine their skin.

What Is IPL?

At Eros Beauty and Wellness, I wanted to provide my patients with top-of-the-line treatments that deliver stunning rejuvenating results, safely and without damaging or impairing their skin, which is why I chose a treatment that takes traditional IPL one step further. Syneron’s Elōs Plus technology uses a combination of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF). This technology allows for more specific targeting of problem areas without harming the surrounding healthy skin. The laser also works to stimulate collagen and improve the quality of the skin over time.

5 Reasons to Try an IPL Treatment in San Diego, CA


  1. Reduce Signs of Aging

The Elōs Plus technology is able to target and reduce the appearance of freckles, wrinkles, sunspots, and brown spots, which are all normal signs of aging due to too much time spent in the sun without protection. The IPL and RF help to break apart the melanin or pigmentation that have gathered at the surface of the skin to form spots. Once the spots are broken down, the body absorbs them, and you’re left with a more youthful, even skin tone.


  1. Treatments are quick and painless

Elōs Plus treatments can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to complete. We will take a few minutes in the beginning to prep your skin by cleansing and removing any makeup or oils. A topical anesthetic can be applied to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the duration of your treatment. Once you’re comfortable, we’ll begin by using the handheld device to strategically target your skin irregularities. Once your treatment is finished, you’re free to go about your day since there is no recovery time with IPL treatments.


  1. Repairs broken capillaries

Elōs Plus treatments can repair broken capillaries (blood vessels) that are typically concentrated around the nose, cheeks, and chin. Stubborn redness caused by broken capillaries will be significantly reduced, leaving the skin clearer and more even.

  1. Long-lasting results

Unlike some other facials, the Elōs Plus offers benefits that can be seen and felt for a long period of time. Typically, we recommend receiving 4 to 6 treatments that are scheduled five weeks apart. Once your treatments are complete, I will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prolong your results, like wearing sun protection, skincare products to use, and even how your diet can affect your results.

  1. Turn up the Brightness on Your skin

If your battling skin conditions that make your skin red or dull, Elōs Plus facials are considered one of the best treatments for brightening your skin and removing redness caused by rosacea.
