As we age our skin accumulates damage from the sun, the elements and the wear-and-tear of daily life. Skin Rejuvenation can repair signs of aging and “turn back the clock” by removing age spots, most brown pigmentation and redness due to broken capillaries. Thus, it improves the appearance of rosacea, flushing and sun damaged skin while improving skin texture and a dull complexion. The treatment also improves mild acne scars, reduces large pores, corrects dark circles around the eyes, and reduces fine lines.
HOW IT WORKS: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-laser therapy that involves shining highly concentrated and intense pulses of light on the skin. At Vivesse we use the Harmony XL system from Alma Lasers, utilizing Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT™). It employs an advanced algorithm that stabilizes each pulse to ensure predictable, reproducible treatments that are safe and effective. An intense light is produced that is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. The light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by and heats the pigmentation and/or abnormally dilated vessels, causing remarkably little or no skin damage. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.
Who is a good candidate? IPL is an excellent treatment for age spots, most brown pigmentation and redness, rosacea, flushing and sun damaged skin while improving skin texture and a dull complexion. For patients with more serious conditions including deep wrinkles and scarring other treatments may be more applicable. Dark or tanned skin individuals may experience an increase in pigmentation after IPL and are not ideal candidates for this treatment.
