Photodynamic Photorejuvenation


What is Intense Pulsed Light?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. It offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction, through a new process called photorejuvenation.


How is Photorejuvenation performed?

A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required.

Treatment is usually administered by your cosmetic surgeon in a series of 4 to 6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about twenty minutes.


What Conditions can Photorejuvenation treat?

Imperfections from Sun Damage and Photo-aging
Facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel. IPL technology helps create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms, and hands.

Broken Veins and Capillaries
The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure, and certain lifestyle factors caused a number of them to break appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.

Redness Caused by Broken Capillaries
Many people suffering from broken capillaries and erythema, feel that it causes them social embarrassment. For both women and men, IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.


In Conclusion

Both the pleasures and stresses of life, along with the simple passage of time, tend to cause our skin to appear older. And the signs of photoaging and sun damage are typically most visible on a person's face and body. While numerous treatments from simple creams to major surgeries exist to improve various facial flaws, skin specialists have always sought dramatic improvement with low risk and no "down time". Additionally, many conventional treatment options only address one condition at a time, while they entail a prolonged recovery time, considerable pain, and potential side effects.

Photorejuvenation using IPL is a non-invasive treatment that treats skin damage without disruption of the skin's surface. Therefore, there is no "down time". Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively.
