Video Overview

Hello, my name is Dr. Joel Erickson. I'm a board certified interventional cardiologist and I'm the owner and medical director at Laser Light Treatment Center. I've been in practice for 24 years. What is intense pulsed light (IPL) and how is it used in nose and facial treatment? Intense pulsed light is the injection of variable and adjustable wavelengths of light into the skin in order to achieve a variety of positive aesthetic effects. Tiny discoloring veins are removed, the skin is smoothed, wrinkles are reduced, and abnormal pigments are resolved with IPL. When it comes to anti-aging technology, there are a lot of choices, and a growing number of choices, but IPL is the basic starting point for anti-aging technology.
