Have you noticed that your skin isn’t as bright, clear and smooth as it once was? The cumulative effects of UV exposure and aging are to blame. While you can’t technically reverse the hands of time, we offer a treatment that can actually make your skin younger looking, healthier and more resilient!
Photofacial rejuvenation, or photorejuvenation, is a treatment that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). This remodels the cellular structure of your skin so that it behaves younger, thereby decreasing and eliminating the visible signs of aging.
IPL has been repeatedly found to effectively resolve the following skin conditions:
- Pigmentation irregularities, like freckles, sunspots, liver spots and melasma
- Rough textures caused by prolonged sun exposure
- Redness and rosacea
- Spider veins and other visible capillaries
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
How Does It Work?
IPL is a broad spectrum of light that is designed to be absorbed by the melanin and oxyhemoglobin in your skin. With exposure, your body reacts by healing at an improved rate, and all of those blemishes and imperfections are pushed to the uppermost surface of your skin where they basically flake off.
We are proud to offer the first photofacial technology that was developed in cosmetic medicine, Lumenis. Considered the gold standard in photorejuvenation, the technology has been proven effective and safe in over 80 peer reviewed scientific papers.
The Lumenis M22 device delivers gentle intense pulsed light energy at optimal wavelengths to address your complexion concerns with an applicator that is continuously cooled for your comfort. Each session takes 30 to 45 minutes.
You may notice that your skin is more rough or spotty for 2 to 3 days after the treatment. That is very normal — it means the treatment has worked! Full result of the treatment can be seen within 5 to 7 days.
We have the vascular handpiece for this device, which can get rid of broken capillaries and veins on the face and hands.
We also have the acne filter for the IPL which is a spot treatment of active acne after a full face IPL.
In a couple of days to a week, pigmented spots will gradually flake off and disappear while any spider veins may turn to bruises and slowly vanish. Your skin will be firmer, smoother and brighter, just like how it used to be when you were younger!
