Intense Pulsed Light is a customizable light treatment using different wavelengths of light to reduce the appearance of thread veins, redness, brown spots and dilated pores. Commonly used on the face, neck, decolletage and hands, IPL Photorejuvenation boosts collagen production to improve skin tone and elasticity. Aesthetic outcomes can be enhanced when combined with other treatments. Intense sun exposure should be avoided one month prior and following treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
A cooling gel is first applied to the area that will be treated and then the light is gently applied. Each session takes around 30 minutes and the treatment causes little discomfort (some patients compare the sensation to that of a rubber band snapping against skin) and while you may experience some redness for a few hours afterwards with minimal if any prolonged downtime. Four to six treatments at 3 week intervals is recommended with 1-2 maintenance sessions a year.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Skin will appear fresher, rejuvenated after just a few treatments and the benefits of a full course (approximately six sessions) can last up to a year. IPL can dramatically increase collagen production, tone and improve the elasticity of the skin, and can also be used in combination with microdermabrasion, peels and dermal fillers.
