At The Elements, we offer a wide variety of skin therapy services using Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology. Using the Clareon IPL System, we can help you rejuvenate and tighten your skin with treatments, such as IPL Skin Tightening.

Why IPL Skin Tightening?

One of the hallmarks of youth is tight, smooth skin — a quality that many people try desperately to retain as they age. Some resort to such procedures as injections, like Botox and Juvederm, and sometimes even cosmetic surgery. IPL Skin Tightening can provide an alternative that is noninvasive, using only intense pulse light.

How Does IPL Skin Tightening Work?

The Clareon IPL Skin Tightening System is designed for deep dermal skin tightening across all skin types. With IPL, a series of high output bursts of broad spectrum light are applied to the surface of the skin. This helps create heat-induced collagen shrinkage, in turn tightening skin and smoothing the texture.

The process also stimulates activity of fibroblasts, which helps your skin generate new, fresh collagen and increases your skin's soft tissue.

Optimal results may require 4-6 treatments. A series of microdermabrasions or chemical peels prior to the laser treatment may result in better stimulation of the collage and elastin fibers. New collagen growth may continue for four to six months post treatment.
