IPL Photo Rejuvenation is designed to target:
- Sun damage, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles
- Treatment of broken capillaries (Telangiectasia)
- Redness caused by Rosacea
How does it work?
Light waves are sent deep into the skin. These light waves boost collagen production and cause blood vessels below the skin’s surface to constrict, reducing the appearance of redness and age lines, while firming the skin.
How long will it last?
The visible results of IPL Photo Rejuvenation become more pronounced with each treatment. Treatments times and required treatments will vary depending on areas of concern.
What’s in it?
The procedure uses an intense beam of broad-spectrum light (as opposed to lasers which use a very specific wavelength).
A handpiece is used to apply a brief pulse of light to the skin. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
Who can use it?
Patients with blotchy, sun-damaged or discoloured skin, large pores or wrinkles. IPL Photo Rejuvenation works best on fair, untanned skin.
Does it hurt?
IPL may feel like a mild sunburn. Sunspots can darken after treatment for approximately one to two weeks. Makeup can be applied.
