About IPL

Laser Genesis technology is an innovative and cutting-edge laser system used to treat many common and complex skin imperfections during a procedure commonly known as IPL (intense pulsed light treatment) This rejuvenating skin care treatment can be used on both adult men and women to treat conditions, such as hyperpigmentation and wrinkle issues on their face and/or neck. While IPL is neither surgical or invasive, it is highly effective and produces beautiful results. At GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX, a member of our aesthetic team will use Laser Genesis to send intense wavelengths of light into the treatment area. The skin is heated just enough to stimulate the natural production of collagen and promote self-healing. Patients will notice increasingly clear skin over the coming months. To learn more about IPL with Laser Genesis, schedule a consultation with Dr. Yujing Li.

Procedure Technique

You Laser Genesis IPL procedure will be performed inside our Houston, TX med spa and could be completed in under 30 minutes if you are not combining other services during your treatment session. To perform the procedure, our aesthetician will clean and dry your skin before placing a protective cover over your eyes. Next, the Laser Genesis handpiece will be slowly waved over the treatment area, emitting pulses of light and energy. The procedure is considered tolerable though mildly uncomfortable. However, your treatment session will be over quite quickly.

What to Expect

A recovery following IPL is not necessary, but you will leave our facility with a bit of redness and swelling. These common and non-severe symptoms will subside in the coming hours. Patients are welcome to conceal their skin with makeup while the skin heals. GLO Laser & Med Spa recommends all patients keep their skin moisturized with a topical ointment during healing. These details will be provided during your consultation and again on the day of your procedure. In the days following the treatment, irregularities beneath the skin will rise to the surface and begin to flake away. It is very important that you do not pick at the flaking skin. Most patients notice results after just one IPL session, but 3 – 6 treatments performed around once a month will yield the best results.
