Increasingly in demand in Los Angeles, skin rejuvenation (we use a process called photorejuvenation) is the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™), a breakthrough technology, to treat and correct a variety of skin conditions such as irregularity of color (brown and red spots), poor skin texture, small veins, and signs of aging due to sun. It offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction. Below is a list of our patients’ frequently asked questions about this procedure. Read on to learn more about skin rejuvenation.
How is the skin rejuvenation procedure performed?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL™ handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required. Treatment is generally administered in a series of procedures that provides excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about twenty minutes.
Why are multiple treatments necessary?
A series of five or six treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk and “no downtime.”
How do other treatments compare to skin rejuvenation?
No other technology provides the long-term improvement of complexion and texture of the IPL™ Photorejuvenation program – all without the slightest interruption in your busy lifestyle.
What conditions can skin rejuvenation treat?
Imperfections from Sun Damage and Photo-aging: color irregularities (red & brown)
Enlarged pores, dull complexions and other facial imperfections or abnormalities can be treated with IPL™. After a series of treatments, you will see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, the chest, and the hands.
Broken Veins and Capillaries
IPL™ therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.
Symptoms of Rosacea
Rosacea is a skin ailment that leaves people red-faced from dilated blood vessels and chronic flushing. IPL™ can successfully treat dilated blood vessels and redness without injuring the surrounding healthy skin, while greatly reducing the episodes of flushing with long-term effectiveness.
