What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to erase the signs of aging from the face, neck, chest, and hands. It is an in-office procedure performed by a physician or trained medical staff member. A treatment program typically includes four to six sessions of about 20 minutes each, performed at three-week intervals.

What can IPL Photorejuvenation treat?
IPL Photorejuvenation has the unique capacity to treat multiple symptoms of aging skin on your entire face in each treatment session. Among these are fine lines, red blemishes, mottled coloration, broken blood vessels, pigment discoloration such as freckles and age spots, enlarged pores, coarse or rough skin, loss of skin tone and elasticity, and general sun damage. The result is a youthful, smooth and revitalized facial appearance. IPL can also treat spots, discolored areas and other tell-tale signs of aging on your hands, chest and neck.

Why is IPL Photorejuvenation better than other treatments?
In addition to treating multiple symptoms and locations in each session, IPL is gentle, non-invasive and safe. Because of this, there is no "down time." You see results in the complexion and the skin texture of the entire face. You can return to your normal routines and activities immediately. In fact, many people even schedule their sessions during their lunch break. Additionally, IPL treatments are customized to your specific skin type and color, providing the best possible results.

Who is a candidate for this new procedure?
Whether you're a man or a woman, if you are showing the signs of aging and sun damaged skin, you should consider IPL Photorejuvenation to help you look as young and healthy as you feel. A brief consultation with an IPL specialist is the way to find out.

How is IPL Photorejuvenation performed?
Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to shield your eyes from the bright light. During treatment, the smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to your skin, delivering pulses of light to the area being treated. IPL treatments are usually considered pain-free, but an anesthetic cream can be used if you find the light pulses at all uncomfortable. Treatment sessions usually last about 20 minutes, and a complete program usually includes four to six sessions. After treatment, you can return to your normal routines and activities immediately. Occasionally, there may be signs of treatment such as redness or blotchiness that can last from a few hours to a few days. You will see gradual improvement from each session, resulting in a dramatic improvement by the end of your treatment program. Results are long-lasting, usually a year or longer. The treated skin is more sunsensitive for two to three weeks and is not usually done when people have a tan.
