What is IPL?
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Skin Rejuvenation treatments gently stimulate the growth of new collagen so your skin will look plumper and hydrated for a more youthful look. The increased collagen in the dermis (top layer of skin) holds the skin firmer lessening the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and open pores.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatments are best at treating:
- Acne Scars
- Age Spots
- Broken Capillaries
- Spider and Thread Veins
- Sun Damage
How does an IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment work on sun and age spots?
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.
How can I increase the effectiveness of IPL treatments?
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.
