After spending the summer outdoors, enjoying the heat, it’s time to think about undoing some of the damage your skin has accumulated from the sun’s rays. Freckles plus brown and red spots – also known as age or sun spots – add up to older looking skin.
Clear, younger looking skin is just a few treatments away with an IPL PhotoRejuvenation treatment. This non-invasive approach reduces the appearance of sun-damaged skin and is effective in reducing or eliminating age spots.
What areas can be treated?
Hyper-pigmentation and brown spots
Appearance of rosacea (but will not remove it entirely)
What can I expect during treatment?
During an IPL 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.
During the treatment, the laser light is guided over the treatment areas with a small handset. As the handset is moved over your skin, the laser sends a pulsed beam of light through your skin. A treatment usually takes up to 30 minutes.
What are the benefits of an IPL treatment?
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
Is an IPL treatment painful?
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.
What can I expect after treatment?
If you experience any redness or swelling, a cool compress or gel pack can be used. Any discomfort should resolve within a few hours.
