PHOTOREJUVENATION treatment using Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a non-invasive treatment that treats skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence, no “downtime”. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, benign brown pigment, age spots (sun induced freckles), mottled pigmentation and the symptoms of rosacea. IPL also improves the tone and texture of skin and may make pore size appear smaller.
1. What is Intense Pulse Light (IPL)?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. It offers a safe non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction, through a new process called photorejuvenation.
2. How is photorejuvenation performed?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are emitted. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required. Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4-6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about twenty minutes.
3. Why are multiple treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of 4-6 sessions may be necessary. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments the procedure provides gradual improvements with very low risk, and it preserves the wonderful no “downtime” feature that people appreciate so much.
4. What conditions can photorejuvenation treat?
Facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well-being and appearance no matter how healthy you feel. IPL technology helps create smoother looking skin. After a series of treatments you can see significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms and hands.
