INTENSE PULSEPhotofacial with Intense Pulse Light removes unwanted vascular and pigmented lesions, such as rosacea, freckles and melasma. A series of treatments rejuvenates the skin without disruption and no downtime.

Do you think that the reflection you see in the mirror each morning matches the way you feel? Many patients wish that there was a safe, easy and quick way to get rid of their red complexion, fine wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and large pores. Fortunately, our advanced technologies enable us to treat these skin imperfections safely, easily and effectively.

Advances in your treatment options have continued to improve, from dermabrasion and chemical peels to C02 and ERBIUM laser skin resurfacing. With dermabrasion, layers of skin are actually sanded away. A chemical peel uses acid solution to burn away layers of skin. Today, lasers give surgeons infinitely more control, making skin resurfacing safer and more predictable. However, laser skin resurfacing still exfoliates the protective outer layer of skin, which may require bandages and a somewhat lengthy recovery period.

IPL Photo Facial Rejuvenation

IPL Rejuvenation was designed to combat the effects of aging and damaged skin in a softer, gentler way. The redness and flushing of rosacea can be reduced 80 to 90 percent. It can be used to treat the full face, neck, chest and even the hands.

Using the advanced IPL system, your doctor gently delivers precise amounts of light energy through your skin's surface. Treatments are spaced out at three week intervals.

The energy is delivered at specific settings for each treatment to maximize your results. The light energy stimulates the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. The redness associated with rosacea can be dramatically reduced.

What results can I expect?

After only one treatment, your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade. Pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size. These improvements will steadily increase with each treatment. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive decrease in redness with every treatment.

What will recovery be like?

Post-operative discomfort is almost nonexistent. After treatment with most light systems, the treated skin may appear a little flushed and capillaries may seem to be more visible. The flushed look soon fades away, and the capillaries appear to vanish, leaving the skin looking younger. It's that simple.

Following any treatment, you should follow your doctor's instructions, avoid any harsh skin cleansers and use sunscreen.

How do IPL Photo Facial Rejuvenation treatments work?

Today's new light technology delivers precise dosages of energy to the skin. During your treatment, light energy is gently delivered through a special handpiece to the targeted area. Levels of energy specific to your treatment are used to maximize your improvement. Once delivered, the light energy is absorbed by the targeted damaged tissue.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the area treated, there will be a series of five to eight treatments. Treatments usually take from 15 to 30 minutes and are administered in the doctor's office.

Does IPL Photo Facial Rejuvenation hurt?

Most patients describe the sensation to be like the snap of a rubber band on the skin as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Some patients opt to have a topical anesthesia. After treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

Who are the best candidates for IPL Photo Facial Rejuvenation?

The best candidates have:

  • red, flushed faces
  • sun-damaged skin
  • hyperpigmentation
  • enlarged pores

Are IPL Photo Facial Rejuvenation treatments safe?

Yes. Advanced light systems have been used safely for millions of treatments worldwide. These systems treat only the targeted tissues, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. However, some bruising or redness may occur.
