The natural consequences of aging on our skin include sun damage, freckles, age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea.
Photorejuvenation is a treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL), a non-laser light source, to fix pigmentation issues, like sun damage, brown spots, and freckles, and vascular abnormalities such as redness, broken capillaries, spider veins, and rosacea. Photorejuvenation also minimizes pore size and fine lines, stimulates dormant skin cells, and promotes new collagen to grow.
IPL technology works by emitting high-intensity pulses of broadband light deep into the skin without harming the surface area. A highly advanced built-in computer controls the range and frequency of the light to target and collapse damaged blood vessels and/or melanin, while normal surrounding skin tissue is hardly affected.
Since IPL uses a range of wavelengths, as opposed to lasers that use just one wavelength, photorejuvenation is ideal to treat large areas that are splattered with skin discoloration issues.
Photorejuvenation treatments can also improve the appearance of birthmarks and uneven pigmentation and stimulate the production of collagen. There is no recovery time and low risk of complications. Multiple sessions of about 20 minutes each are performed every few weeks until the desired result has been achieved.
