As we age, we begin to lose the ability to produce elastin and collagen – important building blocks of the skin. In addition, environmental factors, heredity, lifestyle choices, and stress play a role in how our skin starts to age in our mid 30s. IPL Laser Photo Rejuvenation combats some of the most common skin issues including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and more. Using the power of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), this laser skin procedure yields remarkable results against the visible signs of aging.
Also called a “photofacial,” the IPL laser utilizes light energy to target pigment in the skin. Broad-spectrum light waves penetrate the top layer of skin into the dermis. This breaks up areas of pigmentation while stimulating collagen production. Because the outer layer of skin remains undamaged, you don’t have to suffer through redness and peeling like other laser resurfacing procedures. Some people experience a sunburn sensation for a few hours that dissipates on its own. Depending on the type of pigmentation you have, it may darken or turn gray before gradually disappearing over the course of your treatments. Maximum results are typically achieved in 4-6 sessions. Once complete, your skin appears more even, youthful, and glowing!
