Intense Pulsated Light & YAG
Intense Pulsated Light (IPL) is the most refined facial contouring, and skin tightening treatment for those looking for progressive correction of sun damaged skin. The IPL also works as an effective treatment for reduction of wrinkles, acne scars, spider veins, and unwanted body hair.
How it Works:
Intense Pulsated Light, also called Flashlamp treatments. IPLs use filtered, non-coherent light to selectively destroy melanin laden cells, blood – filled capillaries, and hair roots in a process called Selective Photothermolysis. Photothermolysis uses light of an appropriate wavelength in pulses that damage the part of skin cells responsible for unsightly color. We selected a system that delivers a very uniform pulse profile which can help clear skin in just 1 to 2 treatments.
Our Intense Pulsated Light can:
- Lighten Skin Hyperpigmentation (freckles, solar keratosis, lentigenes, etc.)
- Spider Vein (broken capillary) destruction
- Hasten recovery of active acne when treated with our Cutera 1064 YAG
- Reduce the quantity of unwanted body hair
Recent studies show that IPL is effective at reducing 70% of skin pigmentation. However one can expect a darkening of freckles, age spots, liver spots, etc. and a slight “dirty skin discoloration” over burst fine capillaries immediately after each treatment. These would then fade after 1-2 weeks to reveal a much clearer complexion.
There may be minimal discomfort during the procedure, similar to the snap of a rubber band. Some swelling can be expected at the treatment sight for a few hours after the procedure There is a follow up visit 7-10 days after the procedure for a microdermabrasion session.
The Intense Pulsated Light Process:
- Procedure: 45 minutes
- Sessions Required for Optimal Results: 1-3
- Duration of Treatment: Maintenance every 4 to 6 months
- Recovery Time: none – use of sunscreen on a daily basis
