Designed to treat signs of photo-aging and help restore a youthful looking skin, IPL Skin Treatments using Photo rejuvenation is ideal for men and women with sun damage. IPL Skin Treatments improve age spots (sun-induced freckles), the brown-toned spots of pigment that come from aging or sun damage. In fact, the procedure has been shown to improve facial conditions of a vascular origin, including the broken capillaries, which often causes facial redness. Performed over 4 to 5 quick sessions, the treatment is non-invasive, and does not disturb the top layers of skin.
The advantages of IPL over other skin resurfacing methods are tremendous, particularly for a younger population with mild to moderate skin damage. A treatment takes only 20 minutes, and you can return to work or daily activities immediately. It is administered in a series of four to six treatment sessions, providing gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results.

Is there anything i need to do prior to, or after treatment?
It is advisable to stay out of the sun, and away from tanning beds, for at least 6 weeks prior to and after any treatment. You must ensure that all cosmetics are removed from the treatment area with a good cleanser and then allow the skin to settle. As the skin may be slightly more sensitive post-treatment it is recommended to use skin products developed for sensitive skin and again avoid the sun or tanning beds.

What you can expect
The length of a laser session can be a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. One treatment may show great results and significant enough improvement that it may be all you desire or require. The powerful cooling system of the Palomar Starlux ensures a painless procedure. The laser treatment itself can cause a slight tingling sensation. The appearance of the treated area immediately after a laser session will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of treatment. Immediate after-effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling, which disappear in a short time. Most people return to normal activity right away.
