Sun Damage (1 treatment)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin treatments using the Photo Rejuvenation process represents a breakthrough in age-defying skin treatment. This technique treats sun damaged skin non-invasively, with no disruption of the skin's epidermal surface. IPL treatments address the effects of photo aging and sun damage with low risk of complications and little or no recovery time.
The visible signs of aging cannot be fully avoided, but can be dramatically minimized. The rate of these events is genetically determined for each person. The process first becomes noticeable between the ages of 30 and 35. Aging results from exposure to the environment, it is the critical element in determining who looks older or younger than their biological age. Exposure to sunlight is a key contributor to aging.
Photo aging occurs, when collagen and elastin breakdown are not replaced within the skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles to intensify. Skin loses elasticity causing skin laxity. Photo aging also causes pigment changes with development of age spots (sun-induced freckles) and uneven skin tone. Dilated capillaries are another sign of photo aged skin. Lifestyle choices also have an impact on aging. Cigarette smoking contributes to the breakdown of elastin and collagen and impairs the body's healing capacity.

Photo Rejuvenation with IPL is the most versatile of all treatment options. Patients often schedule appointments during their lunch hours. IPL can treat numerous skin conditions at once. It is effective on red blemishes that originate from blood vessels, as well as brown pigment blemishes in the form of freckles, age spots and other sun damage. IPL also treats the neck, chest and hands, where sun damage is often most visible
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. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms and hands.
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 therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.
