Effectively Reverse the Damage of Sun Rays on your Skin.
As we age our skin reflects damage from the sun, the elements and wear-and-tear of daily life. Reverse the damage of damaging ultra-violet (UV) sun rays on your skin through Photo-rejuvenation with an IPL light-based device.
- Improves “the browns and reds” of the face
- improves sun damage, rosacea, enlarged pores, and over-all dull skin complexions
- Gives the skin a smoother, more even tone appearance
- No downtime
- Skin “glows” after a series of treatments
- Any area of the body can be treated
How it works:
The entire area is scanned with the intense pulsed light. Without damaging the skin the light penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by the pigmentation. The heat impairs the vessels or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process and lessens their appearance.
During treatment, the IPL hand piece delivers a series of pulses of light to the treated areas, which stimulates collagen production. This gives the skin an improved texture and allows it to reflect light better. Photo-rejuvenation selectively targets abnormal changes that develop with age and successfully improves age spots, and symptoms of rosacea, visible small vessels, enlarged pores and reverse the damage of sun on your skin completely.
What to expect:
Most times the area is treated with multiple passes with customized settings. Pigment comes to the surface and sloughs off over the next week to 10 days. Red and blue vessels will be reduced with each treatment. The IPL device will fill feel warm on the skin with the feeling of a rubber band snapping. After the treatment cheeks can be “rosy”; usually there is no redness and you can return to your daily activities without anyone being the wiser.
