IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

IPL skin rejuvenation is a series of light treatments that improve the appearance of broken capillaries, brown spots, Rosacea, flushing, sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, and photoaging. The treatment also improves mild acne scars, reduces large pores, and reduces fine lines. It is a great solution for overall skin rejuvenation.

 

Telangiectasias, or facial vessels, are the dilated capillaries that commonly appear on the surface of the face and in areas around the nose, cheeks, and above the neckline. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that are present throughout the body. Prolonged sun exposure, heredity, aging, trauma, and other factors can cause capillaries to become dilated and visible. IPL will help your appearance by treating any visible traces of these unsightly veins. Diffuse redness is the general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. As with facial telangiectasias, this condition is a result of dilated capillaries, however, the appearance is more of a general redness rather than distinct well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead, and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea that can be hereditary. IPL will help your appearance by treating and reducing this condition. We also include the treatment of pigmented lesions (brown spots) with this service.

On average, you may require 4-6 treatments in order to achieve the results you are looking for. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. At your consultation, we will discuss which treatment will be best for your condition… IPL, YAG laser or chemical peels.

Brown Spots

We all have brown spots on our skin. When skin is exposed to the sun, it causes an increase in the production of cells known as melanocytes that increase melanin in the skin, thus turning the skin darker. These dark skin patches are known as brown spots, age spots, dark spots, sun spots and liver spots.
