IPL PHOTO REJUVENATION

What is IPL photo rejuvenation?

Facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel. IPL technology helps create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms and hands.

Why are multiple treatments necessary?

Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of four to six treatment sessions my be recommended. You will still be able to return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk, and it preserves the wonderful “no down time” feature that people appreciate so much.

What conditions can photo rejuvenation treat?

Benign Vascular Lesions: Broken Veins and Capillaries

The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure, and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of them to break appearing as read streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.

Redness Caused by Broken Capillaries

Many people suffer from broken capillaries and diffuse erythema, that cause them social embarrassment. For both women and men, IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.

Reducing the effects of sun damage

Photo rejuvenation using IPL is a non-invasive treatment that treats skin damage with ought disruption of the skin’s surface, hence no “down time”. Intense Pulsed 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 poikiloderma.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

How does IPL remove hair?

Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle, all without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Are there any possible side effects?

Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur, but typically resolves quickly. Also, the skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimize the risk of complications.

How many treatments are needed and how often?

Generally 4-7 treatments at 6-8 week intervals are needed for optimal results.

Do I have to let the hair grow out prior to treatment?

No. In fact, it needs to be closely shaved 24 hours prior to treatment.
