What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses lasers, intense pulsed light, or photodynamic therapy to treat skin conditions and remove effects of photoaging such as wrinkles, spots, and textures. The process induces controlled wounds on the skin, prompting it to heal itself by creating new cells.
More about Photo Rejuvenation (IPL)
Photorejuvenation is a series of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments that can improve the appearance of sun damage, age spots, brown and red spots, hyper-pigmentation, vascular lesions, rosacea, and skin texture. Treatments can also improve the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes and fine lines.
The way the treatment works is as follows: The IPL’s light energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by pigmentation without damaging the skin. The light energy will then gently heat and then transfer it to the desired area. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to begin a natural healing process. This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. (Results May Vary)
Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure that requires little or no downtime. In most cases, you will be able to return to work and/or resume most of your normal activities right away. Results vary from person to person and nothing can be certain until an initial skin assessment is done by our Aesthetics Director.
The most commonly treated areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight such as face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders. The treatments are highly effective depending on your desired results.
A consultation is required to determine your needs and if you are an eligible candidate for IPL treatments. Only after Dr. Rowekamp, D.O. has done a thorough skin assessment will he be able to go over options with you. At that time he will customize a treatment plan to help achieve your optimal results. Multiple treatments may be required. The exact number of treatments vary depending on many factors which again will be discussed at your initial consultation.
