Intense Pulsed Light (IPL Facial Rejuvenation)
What is Intense Pulsed Light? – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a treatment that can help correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. It offers a minimally invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing results through a process called photorejuvenation.

How is Facial Rejuvenation (Photorejuvenation) performed?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL hand-piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required. Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4 to 6 sessions. Each treatment can take about twenty minutes. Red blemishes from broken blood vessels and brown spots of pigment from sun damage can respond to Intense Pulsed Light. The light is changed to heat energy as it reaches to the level of the collagen beneath the skin surface.

What conditions can Photorejuvenation treat?
Sun Damage and Photo-aging. Facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your appearance. IPL technology helps create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments, you may see a reduction of unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used on the neck, chest, arms and hands.

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 may cause a number of them to break appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy may eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing traces of these unsightly blemishes.

Redness Caused by Broken Capillaries
Many people suffer from broken capillaries and diffuse erythema. For both women and men, IPL may treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.

RESULTS
The signs of photoaging and sun damage are typically most visible on a person’s face and body. While numerous treatments from creams to surgeries exist to help improve various facial flaws, skin specialists have sought improvements with low risk and no “down time”. Additionally, many treatment options may only address one condition at a time, which may entail a prolonged recovery time, considerable pain, and potential side effects.

Photorejuvenation using IPL is a minimally invasive treatment that helps treat skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence, no “down time': Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns, such as broken capillaries, benign brown pigment, age spots (sun-induced freckles), mottled pigmentation and poikiloderma.
