Q: How does an IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment work on sun and age spots?
A: Sun, liver and age spots are on the surface of the skin, often the face and hands. They are caused by excess concentration of melanin in the area. During the IPL treatment, the melanin absorbs the light energy and heats up while the surrounding skin remains cool. This rapid heating helps break up the concentration of excess melanin into smaller particles that then dissipate over the next several days through the skin’s natural process. Imperfections are then reduced and the skin texture and tone are improved by increased collagen production.
Q: How can I increase the effectiveness of IPL treatments?
A: Getting a series of peels after your IPL treatments will continue to reduce pore size, skin discoloration, fine lines, and will improve your overall texture resulting in a more luminous glow.
