IPL Photorejuvenation (also known as IPL, photofacial or just photo rejuvenation) is the answer skin specialists have traditionally sought for dramatic improvement in the appearance of the skin with low risk and no downtime.
Photorejuvenation is a process which uses intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser to eliminate rosacea, fade brown spots such as freckles and sun damage, while diminishing wrinkles and the size of pores in your skin. Your skin becomes smoother and younger-looking often in as little as one treatment.
IPL Treatment Compared to Similar Treatments
Unlike laser resurfacing (such as Fraxel® Laser and chemical peels), the beauty of the non-invasive IPL treatment is that there is virtually no downtime. IPL has minimal discomfort with an absence of scarring, leaving the skin looking fresher and healthier immediately. The improvement in the skin quality is more dramatic than what can be accomplished with microdermabrasion alone. Microdermabrasion is wonderful for surface irregularities, but it cannot eliminate conditions such as face flushing, or promote the formation of new collagen in the dermis.
