Question & Answers:
Q: What is IPL?
A: IPL Photorejuvenation is a noninvasive light based treatment that treats skin damage without the disruption of the skin’s surface. It can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns with no or limited “down time”.
Q: How is IPL performed?
A: A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated. The hand piece is applied to the area and pulses of light are applied. The settings of the energy and pulses are chosen by our expert staff according to each patient’s needs.
Q: How does IPL treat benign vascular lesions?
A: Aging, sun exposure and other factors can cause the appearance of broken capillaries and blood vessels. These spider veins on the face are referred to as telangiectasias which often cause diffuse redness. This redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea. During an IPL™ treatment, the light energy is absorbed by these small blood vessels. Because the vessels absorb this energy they heat up and are destroyed. Over time these vessels are reabsorbed by the body and disappear. Some patients may experience slight bruising at the site where the vessel was destroyed, this bruising will fade within a few days.
Q: How does IPL perform Photorejuvenation?
