Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) technology is a breakthrough treatment that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging or sun damage, birthmarks, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. A new process called photorejuvenation offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type.
Photorejuvenation provides superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction. Photorejuvenation is the only procedure that can treat vascular redness, the appearance of rosacea, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure all at once. At UMA we have the technologically advanced Palomar Starlux Laser with its superior clinical efficacy and enhanced comfort with the integral cooling system.
What conditions can photorejuvenation treat?
- Rosacea – Photorejuvenation reduces the overall redness, flushing and tiny blood vessels associated with the condition and often improves the acne breakouts which are common.
- Sun damage to the face, chest, back, hands and arms – Photorejuvenation reduces some fine wrinkling, freckling and irregular pigmentation and creates a more smooth appearance to the skin and even some reduction in pore appearance.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother, with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and the fading of sun spots. Many patients with rosacea see improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.
What is involved in photorejuvenation treatments?
Each treatment takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes. Individuals with sensitive skin may prefer to use a topical anesthetic cream, which is applied 30-60 minutes prior to treatment. Typically, there is no discomfort after a Photorejuvenation treatment. Immediately following the procedure, the skin may appear more red and flushed, while brown spots will generally appear darker. Over the next several days, the brown spots continue to darken and then subsequently fade away, leaving younger and smoother skin.
When will I see results?
After your first treatment, your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone color. Improvement is gradual and will continue to be more visible after each treatment. Many individuals experience dramatic results after only 1-2 treatments; however, five treatments are usually performed for optimal results. Some patients benefit from additional treatments, although your exact number will be determined by treatment results.
