Say goodbye to blotchy skin, redness,”broken” blood vessels, brown pigmentation, sun spots, and sun damage. IPL photorejuvenation also called photofacial uses a broad spectrum of light to target the affected areas. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or by melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue leaving the skin more even tone and texture. The most common areas of treatment are the face, neck, chest, and hands. During the treatment a cold gel is applied to the area to be treated and goggles or eye shields are applied to protect your eyes. The pulses of light are applied and you may feel a slight stinging. Each treatment takes 15-20 minutes. Most people need a series of 3-5 treatments spaced about 1 month apart. The more redness or sun damage you have the more treatments you need. You will see gradual improvement that yields excellent results with very low risk and no to very minimal downtime.
