Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL)

Belle Vie, a spa facility offering a wide array of services and skin care products in Lexington, has three convenient locations – Hamburg, Beaumont and Belle Vie on Main. Our clients come to us for all of their skincare needs and treatment for a variety of conditions, knowing that the Belle Vie staff is well trained, experienced and completely up-to-date on the best approaches to returning their skin to a more youthful appearance. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our professional staff of RNs, APRNs and Aestheticians with specialized training in skin care.

One of the most effective services we offer at Belle Vie is Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL). Intense Pulsed Light Treatment, the most current development in the use of light technology, erases skin damage without disrupting the surface of the skin. Our clients appreciate this, as the inconvenience of downtime is not an issue with intense pulsed light treatment (IPL).

There are a number of skin conditions for which intense pulsed light treatment (IPL) is an effective remedy, including:

Intense pulsed light treatment is delivered through the use of a dedicated, highly regulated computer delivering a specific wavelength of light pulse to particular problematic areas of your skin, resulting in a heating of skin that damages or destroys unwanted tissue, while sparing the normal surrounding tissue. The inflammation caused by intense pulsed light treatment (IPL), also results in the stimulation of collagen growth, collagen being the key to more youthful skin with elasticity and glow. In order for intense pulsed light treatment (IPL) to deliver comprehensive results, this requires multiple treatments. The professionals at Belle Vie will give you great advice about how many intense pulsed light treatments it will take in order for us to help you achieve your goals. In most instances, intense pulsed light treatments are scheduled to occur about every three to four weeks.

Intense pulsed light treatment (IPL) is gentle, causing minimal discomfort.  You will watch your results evolve subtly, sparing you from sending off signals that you are “having work done” unless you want to share that message.  Your skin’s collagen will continue to renew for a period of time after your last intense pulsed light treatment and the results are long lasting, provided you take care to avoid excess sunlight, tanning beds and other causes of skin damage.  Some of our Belle Vie clients love their intense pulsed light treatment results so much that they opt to do a touch-up treatment every six months or so to retain and improve upon their results.

Belle Vie takes great pride in employing a well-trained staff of professionals who are committed to delivering high quality, effective skincare treatments that achieve the goals of our clients.  Come and visit us at one of our three beautiful locations and see for yourself the pristine setting we provide for all of your skincare needs.
