WHAT IS IT?
IPL photorejuvenation is an intense pulse light therapy that treats rosacea, broken capillaries, age spots, uneven skin tone, large pores, sun damage, melasma and hyperpigmentation. It is also a preventive treatment for general signs of aging.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
IPL photorejuenation uses the Palomar Starlux, which focuses in the deepest layers of the skin to promote new collagen production, improving skin tone, smoothness and overall appearance. The laser is calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin, such as redness, dark spots or discolored patches, depending on your skin care concerns. It causes collagen and blood vessels below the skin's surface to constrict, reducing redness, discolorations and age lines. There is little discomfort during the procedure. In fact, many patients describe the feeling as the mild snapping of rubber bands against their skin. Each treatment takes about 20-30 minutes, depending upon the area(s) being treated.
