The Lumenis® IPL Photorejuvenation Solution™
This treatment enables your physician to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin concerns such as age and sun spots, freckles, birthmarks, rosacea, and broken capillaries.
Our unique IPL (Intense Pulse Light) technology gently and effectively eliminates spots, discolorations, and unwanted blood vessels.
How does it work?
The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
The treatment: To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should apply cold coupling gel on the treatment area. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
What should I expect?
After procedure you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day.
IPL Photorejuvenation treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots may be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments.
Typically, 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns.
