IPL Photorejuvination

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a type of light therapy targeting brown spots, broken veins and capillaries, reducing redness, large pores, and mild acne scarring. IPL treatments are especially effective for improving the appearance of your face, neck, chest, and hands.  This exciting technology involves little “downtime” and you can resume normal activities immediately!
Here are some benefits of IPL:

1. Skin rejuvenation: IPL can improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. It works by stimulating collagen production, which helps to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Acne treatment: IPL can also be used to treat mild to moderate acne by reducing the inflammation and killing the bacteria that cause acne. It works by targeting the sebaceous glands, which produce oil that can clog the pores and cause acne.
3. Reducing the appearance of vascular lesions: IPL can reduce the appearance of vascular lesions, such as small broken capillaries and spider veins which can be found typically on the cheeks and the nose.  It works by targeting the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, which absorbs the light energy and causes the vessels to coagulate and break down.
4. Hyperpigmentation treatment: IPL can be used to treat hyperpigmentation, such as melasma and age spots, by targeting the melanin (or brown) in the skin. The light energy causes the melanin to break down and be absorbed by the body, reducing the appearance of the pigmentation.
It’s important to note that IPL may not be suitable for everyone, and the results may vary depending on the individual’s skin type and condition.
