Intense Pulsed Light technology is a treatment breakthrough that will correct/improve a variety of skin conditions, such as rosacea, broken capillaries, unsightly veins, reddened scars and photoaging due to sun damage. The approach is gradual, with noticeable results achieved over several treatment sessions. Photorejuvenation is a safe, non-invasive solution that is tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results. There is virtually no recovery period needed.

What is Photorejuvenation?
The latest age-defying breakthrough in aesthetic skin care, IPL Photorejuvenation, is a non-invasive treatment that simultaneously improves a variety of facial concerns. The therapeutic light energy erases the skin damage while it protects the healthy surrounding skin. Using the latest generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, this treatment also acts on the collagen beneath the surface. Skin improves with an even-colored tone, smaller pore size, smooth texture, radiant complexion, and an overall revitalized appearance.
What does it treat?
Unlike many conventional cosmetic laser procedures, IPL Photorejuvenation refreshes the entire face and provides noticeable, but subtle results achieved over several treatment sessions. This gradual approach allows you to return quickly to work or routine activities without a recovery period. It also minimizes any discomfort and the likelihood of side effects. From rosacea, fine lines, age spots and broken capillaries to enlarged pores, coarse skin and hyperpigmentation, IPL Photorejuvenation eliminates the signs of aging while restoring a youthful smoothness with high satisfaction.
What are my treatment options?
The IPL Photorejuvenation program generally consists of four to six treatment sessions at three-week intervals. Similar to many medical spa services, a typical session lasts about 1 hour so you can actually schedule an appointment during your lunch hour.
What happens during the treatment?
Prior to treatment, a cool gel is applied to the skin, and you will wear goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is then used to administer pulses of light to the treatment area. You may a feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band; however, local anesthesia or pain medication is seldom required. It's quick, easy, and virtually painless.
Why is it for me?
Another reason why IPL Photorejuvenation is so successful is that it is a true "multi-tasker." It improves redness and broken blood vessels, erases age spots and areas of skin discoloration, as well as reaching down to the level of collagen to enhance your skin tone and texture. More effective than creams and medications, IPL Photorejuvenation also offers relief from the symptoms of rosacea, including flushing. Furthermore, results are excellent on other sensitive body areas, like the back of your hands, chest and neck. This versatility sets IPL Photorejuvenation apart from any other treatment approach.
