As sunny summer days are come to an end, those summer months may have left behind traces of skin damage and hyperpigmentation. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation is a revolutionary skin treatment option that uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths to reduce signs of aging and treat sun damage.
What does IPL do?
The IPL treatment is delivered through our Lumenis M22 laser which works by using intense pulses of broad spectrum light to penetrate deep into the skin. Each treatment builds upon the one before it, which allows the specialist to treat your skin gradually to see how it reacts. Depending on your skin condition, the machine will deliver the light at a different depth, targeting a specific area during treatment.
How many treatments are right for me?
It is recommended that patients complete 2-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. The first reason to schedule them this way is because new skin cells take about 30 days to grow. By spacing out the sessions as such, you will ensure it has properly recovered and healed before it is treated again.
Are results permanent?
Unfortunately, the results from IPL treatments are not permanent as it cannot prevent the effects of aging and the environment. Yearly IPL treatments during the winter season can help remove some of the sun damage from the previous months.
