What Are Intense Pulsed Light Treatments?
Photorejuvenation with IPL is the most versatile of all treatment options. IPL can treat numerous skin conditions at once. It is very effective in treating age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of Rosacea and unsightly red veins.
What To Expect During Treatment?
The patients skin will be cooled with our cool air system fan for 10 minutes prior to the procedure. The IPL handpiece is gently applied to the patients skin and light is delivered to the skin surface in precise pulses that are typically pain free. Some patients describe the sensation as a light pinch. It takes about five minutes to go over the entire face. The patient will then cool their skin for 10 minutes post-procedure. Some redness may be present after treatment but usually will resolve within a couple hours after treatment.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Usually 4 to 6 treatments done at 4 week intervals. Patient should avoid sun exposure during treatment course.
How Long Do Results Last?
Patients being treated with Rosacea will usually get relief from their Rosacea symptoms for about 9 months. Removal of red veins and brown pigmentation can be permanent as long as sun-exposure is avoided.
