IPL photo rejuvenation can treat a wide variety of skin problems. It can be used to remove red spots or diffuse redness and can help with acne or rosacea. IPL treatments can also help to smooth uneven skin texture, close large pores, and eliminate wrinkles by stimulating collagen growth.
How IPL Photorejuvenation Works
During IPL photorejuvenation treatment, high energy light waves are used to reduce or eliminate many common effects of aging, including facial wrinkles and skin discolorations. IPL light also encourages the production of collagen, a natural protein that fills in wrinkles, making the skin smooth and supple. With each treatment, the results of IPL photorejuvenation become more pronounced. Five full-face IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial sessions spaced three weeks apart are normally required for optimal results.
What to Expect During Treatment
Before the procedure begins, you will be given protective eye wear to protect you from the bright flashes of light. A cool gel is often applied to the treatment area, both to lubricate the hand piece and to help cool the epidermis during the treatment. Your skin care specialist will apply brief pulses of bright light to the skin through the hand piece. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
