Facial & Body Transformation With IPL

IPL offers patients of all ages and skin types a new safe, effective, and tolerable treatment for acne using advanced  technology.

IPL is a powerful acne treatment that eliminates the major factors causing acne including excess sebum production, inflammation, and the p. acnes bacteria. Typically, many different treatments, medications, or skin care options are required to address these factors, but can achieve this with a single device.

The unique settings of our device allows energy to penetrate deeply into the skin within a highly safe and tolerable pulse to reduce sebum production, suppress inflammation, and destroy the p. acnes bacteria to help clear current acne breakouts and to stop them in the future. Also, the deep heating energy helps build collagen, which can reduce the appearance of acne scars and leave skin looking radiant.

IPL treatments have been reported as  comfortable for patients, and the results can be seen quickly – in as little as a single treatment. IPL is an excellent option for patients that do not want to take prescription medications or are unable to. Plus, with increasing prescription costs, IPL is an excellent, cost-effective solution for patients’ acne problems.

IPL treatments typically take between 10-30 minutes depending on the severity of acne and the size of the area affected (face, neck, chest, torso). IPL treatments are highly safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types, all ages, and all types of acne. Treatment may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.

IPL treatments allows patients of all skin types to comprehensively clear their melasma and hyperpigmentation. As a multi-factorial condition that can involve epidermal melanin, dermal melanin, and a vascular component, melasma typically requires a complex treatment regimen to achieve clearance and prevent recurrence.

IPL treatments helps patients to achieve clearance with a safe, effective, and tolerable treatment by addressing each of these factors. The intense pulse light energy is delivered into the dermis and epidermis to break up melanin deposits while shutting down vasculature and inflammation. Due to the unique parameters of the IPL energy, treatment is highly tolerable with minimal risk of adverse effects compared to traditional topical or device treatments for melasma.

Management of melasma can be challenging and, with topical agents, may require long-term treatment. IPL treatments, however, can help patients achieve clearance with fewer treatments. For patients who want an accelerated clearance of their condition, IPL treatments can be combined with chemical peels and other skin modalities in a single treatment session.

First, the photofacial aka IPL helps to break up epidermal and dermal pigment. Then, the peel may be applied to speed up the cellular turnover of the epidermis. While the  photofacial may be used alone as a single treatment, the combination of these two treatments offers patients a great “one-two punch” to clear their condition.

IPL melasma treatments typically take 15-20 minutes. IPL melasma treatments are safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types and all forms of melasma. Treatment may be performed without any anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.

IPL advances rejuvenation and tightening to new levels by enabling a comprehensive treatment to address tone and texture, redness, pigmentation, laxity, and other unwanted skin structures in a single treatment with a single device. IPL  wavelength energy is uniquely attracted to melanin, hemoglobin, and water within the skin to safely, effectively, and tolerably renew the skin’s natural, youthful glow. This treatment now accomplishes the results of what used to take numerous treatments and treatment methods.

As skin ages there can be many changes that occur. Skin quality can worsen with enlarged pores, texture, and lax skin. Unwanted conditions such as redness, veins, sun damage, and age spots may show up. Acne may follow through adulthood. Whether you are looking to restore your clear, youthful skin or prevent signs of aging, IPL treatments can help achieve your skin goals. First, IPL photofacials  target water in the dermis to stimulate collagen production, which reduces fine lines, pores, and tightens skin. Then, if present, IPL targets melanin and hemoglobin to clear brown pigment, clear vascular lesions, and suppress inflammation. This treatment is a quick, tailored treatment to address each patient’s specific needs.

IPL treatments typically take 20-60 minutes depending on what conditions need to be addressed and how large the treatment area is (face, neck, chest). Treatment is highly safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types and may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.

IPL photofacials  comprehensively addresses rosacea, redness, veins, and broken capillaries in a single 20-25 minute treatment session. A common condition with skin aging is the appearance of redness and formation of veins and broken capillaries in the skin.

Rosacea is a chronic disorder that is characterized by facial flushing and with time the gradual development of persistent facial redness and spider-like blood vessels. It is often punctuated by episodes of inflammatory papules (bumps), pustules (pimples), and swelling. Management for many people often includes avoidance of popular foods and alcohol as well as cosmetic camouflage, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Other diffuse redness including poikiloderma of civatte may be attributed by other factors such as exposure to UV rays and lifestyle, which can also be addressed by the IPL treatment.

IPL treatements effectively addresses these conditions with deep-penetrating energy that suppresses the inflammation causing the redness. It also coagulates the unwanted veins and broken capillaries, which are then gradually cleared by the body’s natural immune response.

PFB (Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, i.e. ingrown hairs, razor bumps or beard bumps) is an irritating condition that is commonly caused by shaving. It often appears in patients of darker skin types, including tanned skin and skin types IV through VI.

IPL selectively targets melanin in the underlying hair and follicle, as well as hyperpigmentation surrounding the lesion.

Over time, your skin is affected by exposure to UV light, which can cause pigmentary changes on the surface of the skin. The result can be sun or age spots as well as freckles. Some skin is affected by pigmentary changes at birth, called nevi or birthmarks. Regardless of the pigmentary condition, IPL treatments can safely and effectively treat your pigmented lesion, resulting in an even and uniform skin tone.

IPL treatments are able to safely treat a broad range of visible blood vessels from angiomas, broken capillaries, spider veins to large leg veins. IPL treatments delivers intense pulse light of  energy, which will cause the blood within the vein to coagulate and destroy the vessel, which will absorbed by your body over several weeks to leave your skin looking rejuvenated and youthful.
