Photorejuvenation with IPL Laser in South Florida
What is photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is a series of intense pulsed light (I.P.L.) treatments that improve the appearance of rosacea, flushing, broken capillaries, sun damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, and photo aging. Treatment also improves mild acne scars, reduces large pores, corrects dark circles around the eyes, and reduces fine lines. Treatments are especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, and hands. Photorejuvenation treatment involves little or no downtime so patients can resume normal activities immediately.
How is this treatment performed?
Treatment may vary from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated. An intense light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation. The heat causes damage to the vessel or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process. The lesion will darken before it flakes off or the body absorbs it. For optimal results, a series of 3 to 5 treatments are recommended around every 3 weeks. Follow-up treatments may be desired once a year to maintain results.
What can patients expect following treatment?
Patients have a high degree of satisfaction with their results. Expect to see a gradual decrease in redness, broken capillaries, flushing, irregular pigmentation, pore size and fine lines. After each treatment, the skin will feel smoother and appear to have a more even tone.
