Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photorejuvenation is a treatment available at our office in Guelph that can be used for cosmetic and medical conditions of the skin. The treatments are non-invasive, which means there is no interference with the epidermal surface of the skin. It addresses the effects of sun damage and photo aging with very little risk. IPL photorejuvenation is FDA-approved for the treatment of a variety of benign skin conditions, including symptoms of rosacea, age spots and sun spots, birthmarks, and acne scars.
Intense Pulsed Light photorejuvenation has several advantages over other skin treatment options. There are surgical procedures to improve the skin, but they are very invasive and have extensive downtime. The IPL device emits light waves that are adjusted for blood vessels or brown spots. The waves pass through the top layers of skin and are absorbed by the pigment or hemoglobin, effectively damaging the blood vessel and breaking up the pigment. The tiny blood vessels and pigment are absorbed by the body and eliminated, leaving your skin looking refreshed.
It normally takes a series of treatments at our office in Guelph to achieve the optimum results. However, you should see come improvement after the first treatment. The number of treatments you need will depend on your unique skin condition. When you talk to our specialist in Guelph, your skin will be examined and a course of IPL photorejuvenation treatments recommended.
