Intense Pulse Light (IPL) : Dr. Borton first introduced IPL technology to Idaho over 10 years ago. In spite of the fact that IPL was pioneered greater than 20 years ago, improved versions of this light device continue to be the work-horse of many cosmetic dermatology practices because of the broad range of improvements it has to offer patients with aging skin. IPL addresses the redness and dilated blood vessels of rosacea patients, the brown or blotchy hyperpigmentation of aging and sun-damaged skin and improves texture, pore size, and fine lines. Dr. Borton was trained in IPL as well as lasers by Dr. Roy Grekin, Chief of Dermatology Surgery at University of California San Francisco. Dr. Grekin is a well-recognized expert in this field and has been instrumental in bringing many lasers to FDA approval, including the Cutera IPL/laser which we currently use. IPL is a series of 5 treatments with at least 3-6 weeks between treatments. The health and texture of your skin is beautiful after a series of IPL. We do offer individual treatment, but know that it does take a series of 5 treatments to see maximum results.
