IPL Photorejuvenation is a versatile treatment that can renew the color of the skin, improve skin elasticity, and refresh the appearance. This procedure uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths to treat sun damage, and reduce the signs of aging. It can be used to treat a range of skin conditions including sunspots, vascular lesions, and pigmented lesions. IPL treatments can be done on the face, full arms, half arms, chest, neck, hands, half back, half legs, and spot treatments.

How does it work?
IPL operates using the principle of selective photothermolysis, in which the wavelengths of light heats and destroys the tissue targeted for treatment, without damaging the surrounding tissue. The machine is equipped with filters that adjust the range of wavelengths to suit different treatments and skin types.
How many treatments do you need?
A series of 2-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart, is usually recommended to clear skin discolorations and vascular lesions. Each session lasts for 30-40 minutes.
What should you expect?
There is virtually no downtime after our IPL treatment so you can return to regular activities immediately afterward.

IPL is a non-ablative, non-invasive procedure that uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to restore the texture your skin had before exposure to the sun and other environmentally damaging factors.
IPL is gentle and safe, and it effectively treats multiple symptoms and locations in each session. It is an in-office procedure, and virtually no downtime is required. IPL is a remarkably quick way to rejuvenate your complexion by removing the spots, discolorations, and unwanted pigment. Additionally, IPL can be customized to individual skin types and conditions.
Anyone with skin types 1-3 that are showing signs of skin damage caused by aging, sun exposure or other environmental factors.
A cold gel is applied to the treatment area, and patients are given protective eyewear. During treatment, the smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to the skin, and precise pulses of light penetrate the area being treated. The pain level is very minimal and can be further reduced by application of a topical anesthetic and/or cold air. Most patients experience a small stinging sensation. Procedures last about 10-30 minutes.
There may be a slight redness or blotchiness to the skin. This usually disappears after an hour. Age spots may darken soon after IPL treatments as a result of the light interacting with the pigment in your age spots, and may fade or flake off following your treatment. Other than that, there will be no outward signs of trauma to your skin.
The goal of this procedure is to provide maximum benefit with minimal trauma and risk to the skin. Several treatments ensure gradual, natural-looking improvement. A complete program usually includes 2-6 sessions at approximately 3-4-week intervals. Maintenance treatments may be needed.
