IPL | Photorejuvenation

Photorejuvenation is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) lasers to remove the effects of years of sun damage such as wrinkles, brown spots, scars, stretch marks, and broken capillaries. The process inflicts small wounds on the skin, prompting it to heal itself by creating new cells. Skin resurfacing treatments are categorized as ablative and non-ablative the procedures are performed differently and they produce different results.

Fractionated Laser

Fractional laser treatment safely works just below the skin’s surface and has few side effects than older resurfacing technologies. It addresses skin imperfections and has a shorter recovery time. Benefits of fractionated laser treatment include improving the appearance of fine lines and scars. Recent studies have shown that it also improves the appearance of rosacea.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is painless and is often permanent. A laser beam of light is directed at the hair follicle and is absorbed by its dark pigment, resulting in its destruction. The number of laser treatments is dependent on the amount and type of hair being removed.
