Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photorejuvenation is a new method to rejuvenate and improve the overall appearance of the skin for a more even skin tone and radiant complexion. IPL provides gradual improvement over 2 to 4 treatments, spaced at 3 to 4 week intervals with very low risk, little discomfort and no downtime. IPL treatments are safe and effective for application on the face, neck, chest and hands.
The IPL photorejuvenation system treats a wide range of skin conditions, including:
For a few hours after treatment, you may experience redness, slight swelling and a “sunburned” feeling. Pigmented areas may appear darker. Superficial pigmented lesions darken, dry, and slough off in 7 to 10 days.

Each treatment takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. A minimal amount of discomfort can be expected. A thin layer of emollient is applied to the treated area. The chilled hand piece that remains in contact with the skin during the procedure provides added comfort. There is generally no discomfort after treatment. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, and small dilated blood vessels and capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear slightly darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours to a few days.
Within hours of the first treatment, the skin will often feel smoother and have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Two to six treatments are recommended for optimal results.
