for facial skin imperfections
Imagine a more youthful looking you…
Both the pleasures and stresses of life, along with the simple passage
of time, tend to cause our skin to appear older. And the signs of aging
and sun-damage are typically most visible on a person’s face. While
numerous treatments from simple creams to major surgeries exist to improve
various facial flaws, skin specialists have always sought dramatic improvement
with low risk and no ‘downtime’. Additionally, many conventional
treatment options can only address one condition at a time, while they entail
a prolonged recovery time, considerable pain, and potential side effects.
IPL™ Photorejuvention is a non invasive treatment that erases skin
damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence no “downtime”.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) can simultaneously treat a wide range
of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, skin
discolouration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation and the symptoms
What is Intense Pulsed Light?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) technology is a treatment breakthrough
that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin
imperfections, the signs of aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly
small veins, and other blemishes. It offers a safe, non-invasive solution
that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing
superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction. This new procedure
is called Photorejuvenation.
How is the Photorejuvenation procedure performed?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be
given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth
glass surface of the IPL™ handpiece is gently applied to your skin
and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping
of a small rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required.
Treatment is generally administered in a series of procedures that provides
excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction.
Each treatment takes about twenty minutes.
Why are multiple treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and the severity
of the individual problem, a serious of five or six treatment sessions
may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all
your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments,
the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk –
and, it preserves the wonderful “no downtime” feature that
people appreciate so much.
How do other treatments compare to Photorejuvenation?
While there are lasers that treat red spots, other lasers that treat browns,
and others yet that are used for resurfacing facial skin, no technology
provides the long-term improvement of complexion and texture of the IPL™
Photorejuvenation program – all without the slightest interruption
in your busy lifestyle.
What conditions can Photorejuvenation treat?
Imperfections from Sun Damage
Enlarged pores, dull complexions and other facial
imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance,
no matter how healthy and young you feel. IPL™ technology improves
both the superficial and deeper skin layers and rejuvenates the skin while
at the same time delivering beneficial thermal energy to deep tissue.
After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted
pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin. The same
treatment can be used effectively on the neck, the chest, and the hands.
Benign Vascular Lesions
Broken Veins and Capillaries
The face has an extensive network of veins and
tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure,
and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of them to break appearing
as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL™ therapy can eliminate
damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these
Symptoms of Rosacea
Rosacea is a skin aliment that leaves people red-faced
from dilated blood vessels and chronic flushing. Rosacea can also cause
pimples and/or blisters on the nose and cheeks. For women and men, IPL™
can successfully treat dilated blood vessels and redness without injuring
the surrounding healthy skin, while greatly reducing the episodes of flushing
with long-term effectiveness.
