Aging is an ongoing process of change, and some of these changes are welcomed with joy, such as a baby’s first step. Other changes, however, are greeted with a less enthusiastic response, such as the appearance of more wrinkles, brown pigment or red spots. Aging skin is accelerated, in some cases, by genetics and disease, but most significantly by exposure to the sun’s UV rays. UV rays cause damage to collagen, solar elastosis, telangiectasias, lentigines, and wrinkle formation. The collective description of these unwanted effects is described asphotodamage. This procedure helps reverse sun damage and give your skin a more youthful look.
Photo rejuvenation, also called intensed pulsed light (IPL), or Broadband light (BBL), is the process of using laser and light sources for returning skin to a more youthful appearance. Therefore, effective photo rejuvenation reduces wrinkles, brown pigment, red spots and improves skin texture. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is one of the best choices for reversing sun damage as it improves red spots, brown pigmentation, and texture and stimulates collagen. We recommend one or two IPL treatments per year to prevent or slow down skin aging.
IPL devices are very effective for rejuvenating sun damaged skin. IPLs are able to treat pigmentation, flushing, rosacea, telangiectasia (spider veins), and enlarged pores. The use of IPL for improving skin tone and texture and mild wrinkles on the face, neck and chest is an additional benefit. IPL is a very popular non-ablative technique, meaning that it does not damage the surface of the skin. There are studies that show that IPL treatment can restore gene expression pattern of aged human skin to resemble young skin.
