IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) with Lumenis Laser treats brown spots and fine lines on your skin which result from sun damage. Exposure to harmful UV rays can take a toll on your skin. Eventually, the damage becomes visible in hyperpigmentation, capillaries, uneven skin tone, and fine lines.
HOW DOES IPL PHOTOREJUVENATION WORK?
Lumenis is considered the industry standard in laser treatments, it is the first laser developed for IPL treatments. The Lumenis Laser combines Multiple Sequential Pulsing (MSP) and Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) to target the darker pigments caused by sun damage. These features help improve patient comfort during the procedure.
The pulsing wavelengths target multiple skin layers, targeting both current sun damage and damage that has yet to appear on the skin. Melanin and oxyhemoglobin absorb the broad spectrum of light, causing the darker pigment to break down. Over time, skin looks smoother and younger, with a more even complexion.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
IPL Photorejuvenation takes about an hour to perform. A single handpiece is used to deliver the wavelengths to your desired treatment area. A cooling device will help mitigate any discomfort associated with the heating sensation.
After the procedure, you should wear a high SPF sunscreen, as your face will be red and sensitive to sunlight. About 3 to 5 days after the treatment, you’ll start to see your skin flake; this is your dermis shedding the top layer of skin. With consistent treatments, you should see noticeable fading of sun damage.
You should see ideal results 8 to 12 weeks after your final IPL Photorejuvenation procedure.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Most patients need about three to six treatments scheduled four weeks apart.

Does IPL Photorejuvenation Really Work?
Treat Sun-Damaged Skin
The IPL facial fights the impact of UV damage in two ways. The IPL Facial draws out discolored cells from the dermis, after which the intense pulsed light eliminates dark age spots and dewy complexion. Deep exfoliation produces new collagen and replaces the old.
