• What is IPL Photorejuvenation?

    IPL Photorejuvenation

    If you are looking for a non-invasive method of improving the appearance of your skin, then you may benefit from IPL photorejuvenation therapy . This treatment is popular among dermatology patients who suffer from brown spots, scarring, redness, or poor skin texture.

    What is it used for?

    There are a variety of benefits that IPL, or intense pulsed light, photorejuvenation therapy can provide for your skin. This treatment is frequently used to help control flushing symptoms, as well as to reduce the appearance of dilated blood vessels, redness, rosacea, and broken blood vessels on the neck, face, and chest. IPL therapy is also effective for reducing or eliminating the appearance of age and sun spots that create dark patches of skin on various parts of the body, most commonly the face, chest, neck, and hands. This treatment can also have a positive effect on fine lines, large pores, rough skin, and stretch marks.

    How does it work?

    IPL photorejuvenation therapy is performed using a device which emits light waves. Your dermatologist will tune the device to a specific range of light waves and then target the trouble area. The pulsed light treats the treatment area of the skin by diffusing unwanted pigmentation and stimulating collagen production.

    What is the treatment process?

    First, your doctor will examine your skin to determine your candidacy for the procedure. If your dermatologist feels IPL therapy would benefit your skin, he will develop a treatment plan and estimate the number of necessary therapy sessions. On the day of your procedure, you will wear an eye mask to protect your eyes from the light. Next, your doctor will use the IPL device to shine bright pulses of light onto the treatment area. The IPL results are relatively long-lasting, and the procedure requires little to no downtime.

  • Spotting the Signs of Aging

    Changes in the skin are some of the most obvious signs of aging. While skincare can slow the process, your skin thins, produces less oil, may develop changes in pigmentation, has reduced elasticity, and contains more fragile blood vessels as you age. These changes can lead to a variety of visible symptoms in your skin.

    Wrinkled Skin

    As years pass, your body produces less of the elements that keep your skin plump, moisturized, and tight. Despite skincare, skin can naturally lose elasticity as it ages, and this plus the reduced amounts of oils in the skin tissues can result in skin that is loose and wrinkled. Other factors of aging also contribute to wrinkles, such as exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light and repeated facial expressions.

    More Bruises

    If you have noticed that you bruise more easily than you once did, this can be a result of aging. Bruises form when blood vessels just beneath the surface of your skin break because of an injury or impact. Blood then leaks from the broken vessel and appears as a blue or purple mark under the skin until the body begins to reabsorb the blood cells. As you age, your skin becomes thinner, providing your body with less cushioning protection. Also, your blood vessels can become more fragile with age, making them more vulnerable to damage.

    Age Spots

    Sometimes referred to as liver spots, age spots are common skin issues seen in older individuals. They are often the result of long-term exposure to the sun’s UV light or that of tanning beds and lamps. Melanin pigment in your epidermis is what gives your skin its normal color. UV light increases melanin production, resulting in a tan if in sufficient amounts. With age, melanin can be produced in high concentrations in certain areas of the skin that received significant sun exposure, resulting in age spots.
