IPL – Photorejuvenation

IPL Photorejuvenation can treat a variety of benign skin conditions. The broad spectrum of light used in IPL Photorejuvenation treatments is absorbed by the target tissue, and is then removed by the body’s natural processes, providing dramatic improvements in the appearance of age spots, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, rosacea and more.

Is IPL right for you?

IPL Photorejuvenation may be the ideal treatment option if you:

  • want to improve the appearance of redness and rosacea
  • want to improve the appearance of brown pigmentation and age spots
  • want a procedure that has very minimal down time

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?

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 approximately 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.

Both IPL and photofacial are the same treatment.

They are just two different names for the same procedure. IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light. IPLs and photofacials denote a procedure where a light based (not laser based) treatment is performed of the face to target different pigmented lesions and broken capillaries with the goal of improving the pigmentation of the skin. At the same time, there is stimulation of collagen production which can improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin.

In order to achieve visible and appreciable results, more than one IPL treatment is typically needed. Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results A single treatment will often leave patients disappointed as there is very little effect seen from a single IPL or photofacial treatment.
