IPL Q & A
What problems can be treated with IPL?
Unlike most laser treatments, IPL emits a broad spectrum of light that’s able to target and treat a myriad of skin imperfections including:
- Uneven skin tone
- Birthmarks and vascular birthmarks
- Age spots and freckles
- Sun damage
- Broken capillaries
It’s common to experience a combination of skin problems, such as freckles and age spots, or Rosacea and broken capillaries. If you’re experiencing more than one skin problem listed above, the same treatment may be able to address all of your concerns.
Does IPL treatment hurt?
IPL causes a slight snapping sensation that some patients find painful, and most find slightly uncomfortable. How you experience IPL depends on your threshold or tolerance for pain. The good news is that although the treatment can be uncomfortable, the pain resolves upon conclusion of the treatment.
Why should I choose IPL over other laser treatments?
You no longer have to subject yourself to the cost, discomfort, or inconvenience of multiple treatments to get the results you want. There are many reasons to choose IPL over traditional laser treatments. Each IPL session becomes more affordable than the last. Also, you can treat several different problem areas with IPL treatment.
How much does IPL cost?
The cost of your treatment depends on the number of areas targeted and the number of treatments required to achieve your desired results. The team of professionals at Renu MedSpa ensures you know what to plan and budget for before your treatment begins.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments depends on the depth and severity of your skin damage and changes. Most patients need 3-5 treatments to achieve the results they want, but some require fewer, and some require more.

Can men receive SculpSure?
Yes, SculpSure is for both men and women. SculpSure is especially effective in the abdominal area, where many men carry extra weight.
Am I a strong candidate for SculpSure?
SculpSure isn’t for people who are underweight, obese, or significantly overweight. If you’re healthy and suffering from stubborn fat in a few localized areas, you may be a good candidate for SculpSure.
How many SculpSure treatments are required?
Just one treatment can decrease fat in the treatment area by up to 24%. Some patients choose to treat several treatment areas, and other patients require more than one treatment in the same treatment area to remove a larger volume of fat.
