Intense Pulsed Light technology is a treatment breakthrough that will correct/improve a variety of skin conditions, such as rosacea, broken capillaries, unsightly veins, reddened scars and photoaging due to sun damage. The approach is gradual, with noticeable results achieved over several treatment sessions. Photorejuvenation is a safe, non-invasive solution that is tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results. There is virtually no recovery period needed. Receiving treatment can be compared to the sensation of a small rubber band gently snapping against the skin. Photorejuvenation effectively reduces signs of aging by restoring an even hue/color to the skin, dramatically improving your overall appearance.
An intense light is applied in a series of gentle pulses to treat the face, chest, neck and hands–virtually anywhere that sun damage shows. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation in the skin. The lesion will darken before flakes off or is absorbed by the body. Treatment can be given as frequently as every three weeks.
For optional results, a series of 5 treatments are recommended. Some patients see significant improvements in to 2 to 3 treatments while others require more. Follow up treatments may be desired once a year to maintain results.
