With Photofacial treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) can remove sunspots, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, facial veins and spider veins. This is one of the latest advances in dermatology that turns skin red and blotchy in a healthy dermis, smooth and completely uniform hue.
During the procedure used intense pulses of light that penetrate the skin deep down, the IPL causes blood vessels to constrict and thereby reduce the redness along with most of the lines.
Photorejuvenation with IPL is suitable for skin with hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne rosacea and facial veins, as well as very effective to counter the damage caused by the sun. The smokers, those who drink heavily or who have suffered Hormonal changes can also take advantage of this technique.
While the IPL photorejuvenation uses high energy light waves that reduce or eliminate many of the defects of the skin, it also stimulates increased production of collagen which fills in wrinkles and provides flexibility to the skin.
The treatment is progressive and the number of sessions needed depends on each individual case, but usually takes at least 5 sessions, each three weeks apart for best results.
Unlike many other laser techniques, the IPL skin is not removed during the sessions reason that the recovery is immediate and patients can resume their daily routines without problems. IPL is a treatment that produces minimal discomfort, providing noticeable results gradually. Side effects of IPL therapy are: bruising, redness, blistering and changes in pigmentation of the skin, which disappear quickly.
