How does skin rejuvenation work?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation skin treatment applies a broad spectrum of light to the skin. The light penetrates deep into the skin, targeting pigment and vascular imperfections. The multiple wavelengths of light reach different levels of the skin to lighten hyperpigmentation, shrink blood vessels and stimulate collagen.
When can I expect to see results?
Gradual and cumulative improvement of skin tone is typically achieved between 5-6 treatment sessions. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition. Schedule a complimentary consultation to establish your personalized treatment schedule.
Does it hurt?
Cooling of the skin surface ensures patient comfort and additional safety during treatment. Most patients experience little or no discomfort. Some patients may feel warmth or a slight stinging sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.
Remember that everyone is different and what one person considers bothersome another may not mind at all. It all depends on individual sensitivity or tolerance to the stimulation. Most people tolerate the treatment just fine.
Is there any downtime?
This is a no downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Are there any side effects?
