Photo rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that treats skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence no “down time.” Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, benign brown pigment, age spots, mottled pigmentation and poikiloderma.
How IPL works?Broad spectrum pulsed light is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the hand piece change the range of wavelengths, optimizing it for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the relevant chromophores and damages them (blood chromophores when treating vascular lesions and melanin chromophores when treating pigmented lesions). The body’s natural processes then clear the lesion debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
