Photo Skin Rejuvenation
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a non-invasive, non-ablative broad spectrum light. IPL is designed to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, pore size, rosacea and veins. IPL also stimulates collagen so it helps decrease fine lines.
The visable light that is delivered by the intense pulse light procedure is absorbed by the pigmented spots and red areas of your skin. It is the heating of the cells that causes the therapeutic effect. No topical anesthetic or gel is required for this treatment. IPL is a fast with no down time. Immediately after the procedure , the spots will start to darken. A slight redness might also appear. The redness typically subsides within a few hours. Over the course of the next one to two weeks, the darkened spots will fade and flake off. All skin types and conditions are different, but most patients see significant improvement in their skin within a few weeks of treatment. More than one treatment is typically needed.
IPL is a safe alternative procedure to laser resurfacing that requires no down time. After treatment your complexion will be clearer and younger looking. Is IPL the right treatment for your skin conditions? Come in for a free consult and ask our aestheticians.
