Effects of intense pulsed light on sun‐damaged human skin, routine, and ultrastructural analysis*

Abstract: Under these conditions, IPL induces minimal morphologic changes in mildly sun-damaged skin. Some esthetic improvement may be secondary to clearing of Demodex organisms and reduction of associated lymphocytic infiltrate.

“…Its main advantage over lasers is its ultralow cost and short downtime, while having a moderate effect on improving the skin, [140][141][142][143] possibly by the same dermal remodeling mechanism that attributes to the success of laser skin resurfacing. 144 In contrast, other studies have negated the efficacy of intense pulsed light, observing minimal morphological changes in dermal collagen 145 and no significant elimination of rhytides.…”

“…Although most studies have indicated significant levels of patient satisfaction and even histological and biochemical evidence of improvement, photographic assessment by blinded observers has often found only minimal or no improvement. Thus, limited clinical efficacy is the major disadvantage of this technique compared to ablative laser skin resurfacing [16,17].…”

“…It may be that enough heat energy is delivered to the dermal fibroblasts to stimulate increased collagen production. 20 In another study, 24 no difference was noted in the amount or quality of collagen between treated and untreated areas. These authors found a decrease in Demodex species in the treated areas and theorized that perhaps this was responsible for the observable clinical improvement.…”
