An even, clear complexion is desired by many. If you are unhappy with your skin due to uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, signs of aging, and more, IPL Photorejuvneation may be right for you.
What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation is skin treatment that can be done to correct sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
An IPL treatment is fairly quick, only taking 30 minutes to complete. During this time, intense pulses of light penetrate deep into the skin to cause the production of collagen and blood vessels to constrict. In turn, age lines and redness will diminish. Most patients require five IPL treatments spaced three weeks apart to see optimal results.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Individuals who wish to treat sun damaged or blotchy skin, or those with wrinkles, freckles, or large pores may be able to benefit from IPL Photorejuvenation. Those with lighter skin tones are often the best candidates, as those with naturally dark skin can sometimes experience pigmentation changes after IPL treatments. It is also recommended that women who are pregnant postpone their IPL treatment until after they give birth. A consultation with our skin specialist can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
There is minimal recovery time associated with IPL Photorejuvenation, since there is very little damage done to the skin. Patients may experience redness, which should fade within a week. After treatments, patients should take extra care to avoid direct sunlight for several days, and apply sunblock for at least two weeks to ensure desired results.
