What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL Photorejuvenation is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots, most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries. IPL Photorejuvenation can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and high satisfaction.
How does it work?
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece through a small, smooth, transparent lightguide which is gently placed over your skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body's natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.
Where on the body can IPL Photorejuvenation be used?
IPL Photorejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
What is an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment like?
IPL Photorejuvenation is typically performed in a physician's office. First, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. The pulses of light are applied to your face, and you may feel a slight stinging. Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. Treatment is generally administered in a series of four to six sessions, and you will see gradual improvement that yields excellent long-term results with very low risk and very minimal downtime.
Who can get an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment?
Most people can safely receive an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment. However, always consult with your physician to find out if IPL is right for you. Be sure to also ask your physician about all the other benefits of IPL treatments!
