Are you looking to take the edge off of age? IPL Photo Rejuvenation can clear up bothersome age spots, most benign brown pigments, large pores and redness caused by broken capillaries. It is a gentle, non-invasive light treatment that improves the appearance of photo-aged skin by stimulating your skin’s natural collagen. IPL photo rejuvenation can be tailored to your individual condition, complexion and skin type.

How does IPL Photo Rejuvenation work?

IPL Photo Rejuvenation uses a broad spectrum laser light, transmitted via a hand piece through a small transparent light guide which is gently placed over your skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions, or melanin when treating and correcting pigmented lesions. The body then naturally removes the corrected tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.

What can I expect?

Prior to treatment, you will have a personal consultation to create a treatment plan to target your skin’s specific needs. Depending on your unique skin, follow-up treatments may be necessary. These can be done 4 weeks after your previous treatment. Up to 5 treatments may be necessary for your best results.

 

During treatment, the technician will apply a cool gel on the skin being treated. The smooth glass surface of the hand piece is gently applied to your skin. You may feel a very slight sting, similar to the snapping of a small rubber band. At the end of treatment, the gel is wiped off and a cold pack is applied to the treated skin. Treatments can take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on your personal treatment plan.

 

Following treatment, your skin may feel warm, as if you have sunburn. This will subside within the day; the treated areas will heal within the next week. Most patients can be at work the very next day.
