The Benefits of IPL Photo-Rejuvenation Treatment
IPL is an abbreviation for intense pulsed light, a type of treatment that is very effective for various aspects of cosmetics. Our Palomar medical laser is the most advanced IPL System. The sapphire treatment tips, along with an advanced contact cooling system, helps to protect the epidermis and ensure a more comfortable treatment. Our IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment addresses pigmentation issues such as sun damage, brown spots, and freckles on the surface of the skin. It is also very effective for treating vascular abnormalities such as redness, spider veins, broken capillaries, and rosacea. The results of this specific treatment minimise pore size and reduces fine lines on the skin’s surface.
The purpose of IPL photo-rejuvenation is to stimulate dormant skin cells and promote new collagen growth. Collagen is the main structural protein that is present in various connective tissues in the human body. By promoting new collagen growth, the results are healthier and rejuvenated skin that is smoother and more vibrant in appearance. This revolutionary treatment focuses on the tissue underneath the surface of the skin. Therefore, it will not directly harm or impact the skin’s surface, and merely passes through it to reach the tissue underneath. This is accomplished by using light energy as opposed to a preset frequency beam. As a result, it is a very effective way to address various skin issues.
How Does the IPL System Work?
IPL photo-rejuvenation uses a hand-held device that produces and pulses intense light energy directly onto the skin’s surface. The advanced contact cooling system ensures a comfortable treatment as energy passes through the initial surface without causing any harm. The emitted pulses are controlled by the built-in computer on the device, changing the range and frequency of the light pulses to efficiently target and collapse damaged blood vessels and/or melanin within the targeted area. The surrounding skin tissue is barely affected by the light energy. Therefore, this type of treatment will cause the treated area of skin to rejuvenate and heal.
The purpose of our IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment is to treat large areas of the skin that are suffering from skin discoloration issues. It can be used effectively on areas of the body that include the face, chest, arms, and back. The treatment will consist of your therapist moving the device over your skin. Each pulse of light will result in a sensation that is similar to a rubber band being snapped against your skin. Therefore, you can expect minimal pain, if at all, during the treatment session. We highly recommend that you consult your therapist before this type of treatment.
