As we approach autumn, it’s time to think about post-summer skin care. An ideal treatment for reducing or eliminating damage accumulated over the summer (and in past summers), is the IPL or Photorejuvenation treatment.
An IPL procedure commonly treats sun damage and age spots on:
Hyperpigmentation and brown spots
Appearance of rosacea (but will not remove it entirely)
What are the benefits?
Safe & comfortable procedure
No gel, pain medication or anesthetic cream required (utilizes pulsed light)
Quick treatment time (less than 1 hour)
Minimal treatments required (1-3) Works on most skin types as it can be customized to different skin tones and aging conditions, and
Works well in combination with Laser Vein Removal
What can I expect during treatment?
During the treatment, you’ll wear special eyewear that protects your eyes from the light beam of the laser. The treatment area will be prepared for the laser by spreading an anesthetic cream over the face or area to be treated. A treatment usually takes up to 30 minutes.
Does it hurt?
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, described as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This mild discomfort resolves in a few seconds.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Results vary from one person to another, but several treatments may be necessary to fully remove skin blemishes or spider veins.
You can expect the procedure to last less than an hour. There’s no recovery time, so you can back to work immediately, or if you have an event that evening, you’re good to go.
There’s minimal discomfort – a mild tingling sensation is felt during the procedure – and no anesthetic is needed. Some people experience a healthy glow afterwards.
