What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-surgical treatment that uses a series of light pulses to remove blemishes and imperfections in the skin. IPL can help reduce wrinkles and lines. A series of treatments is usually recommended for the best results and a more youthful appearance.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Broad spectrum pulsed light is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. The light penetrates deep layers of skin and is absorbed by red capillaries, red spots, brown spots, sun damage, breaking up the pigmentation and blood cells that cause skin discoloration. The body’s natural processes then clear the lesion debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance. As the treated areas heal, your skin produces healthy collagen and elastin, helping to restore soft, smooth, firm skin with more even texture and tone.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Healing after an IPL treatment varies with each patient, and in most cases takes less than a week and as little as 2-3 days. Initially you might feel like you have a mild sunburn, that usually goes away in a matter of hours, or a day or two at most. As the targeted pigment rises to the surface, freckles and age spots after treatment usually turn darker for a few days to a week before they begin to fade. Crusting may occur and will gradually flake off, along with the dark pigmentation. For treatment of red capillaries, they may appear slightly more red for several days after treatment, until absorbed by the body. You may resume most normal activities, such as wearing makeup and going back to work immediately. We will provide you with detailed after care instructions to assure that you heal properly.
