IPL & Laser Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation
For more even toned and smoother skin
IPL (intense pulsed light) and laser treatments both improve complexion and promote collagen production without any downtime. They improve complexion by reducing the appearance of sun spots, background redness, and dilated blood vessels. IPL and laser treatments promote collagen production adding strength back to the skin which decreases with age.
IPL and laser treatments work by targeting brown and red discoloration apparent on the skin's surface. When aimed at the skin, brown and red colors preferentially absorb the light energy produced by the IPL or laser and convert it to heat energy. This energy causes microscopic injury to the areas of discoloration. Over time, your body repairs this injury and removes the areas of discoloration in the process.
Since the injury is microscopic, there is no recovery after IPL or laser treatments. Each treatment takes 10 - 20 minutes, and most patients only have mild redness afterward at most.
IPL and laser treatments can help all skin types from very pale to very dark. They cannot be performed over makeup and are most effective and safest on non-tanned skin. They cannot be performed if you have a lotion-based or sprayed on tan.
