Intense pulsed light, also known as IPL, can offer a gentle and long-lasting solution for visible signs of sun damage that affect the way your hands look. It also combines dramatic improvement with virtually no downtime and with no damage to the surface of the skin, which some patients may experience during laser resurfacing. A typical IPL Hand treatment can take 15 minutes. There may be some redness and/or minor swelling after treatment. Any brown spots will eventually darken and fade from the surface, revealing fresher-looking, smoother skin. Several treatments (sometimes as many as 6) may be required to see the full benefit to the skin.
