Why are multiple treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of four to six treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk – and, it preserves the wonderful “no down time” feature that people appreciate so much.
How do other treatments compare to IPL?
While there are lasers that treat telangiectasia and broken capillaries, other lasers that treat benign brown pigments and others yet that are used for resurfacing facial skin, no technology provides the long-term improvement of complexion and texture of the IPL® Skin Treatments – all without the slightest interruption in your busy lifestyle.
What conditions can IPL treat?
Facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel. IPL technology helps create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and blemishes, including sun spots, birthmarks, age spots, and signs of photo-aging. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms and hands.
Benign Vascular Lesions: Broken Veins and Capillaries
The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure, and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of them to break appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.
Redness Caused by Broken Capillaries
Many people suffer from broken capillaries and diffuse erythema, that cause them social embarrassment. For both women and men, IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.
Both the pleasures and stresses of life, along with the simple passage of time, tend to cause our skin to appear older. And the signs of photo-aging and sun damage are typically most visible on a person’s face and body. While numerous treatments from simple creams to major surgeries exist to improve various facial flaws, skin specialists have always sought dramatic improvement with low risk and no “down time.” Additionally, many conventional treatment options can only address one condition at a time, while they entail a prolonged recovery time, considerable pain, and potential side effects. IPL is a non-invasive treatment that treats skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence, no “down time”. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, benign brown pigment, age spots (sun-induced freckles), mottled pigmentation and poikiloderma.
