Perhaps your skin is rough, patchy, has blotches, or discolorations and you would like to tighten your skin without surgery. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) can treat your skin by resurfacing the upper-most layers (the epidermis) and stimulating new collagen production for tighter, smoother, and younger looking skin.
IPL therapy can remove unwanted hair, rejuvenate skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, leg veins, or tattoos, correct red and brown skin discoloration such as port wine birthmarks, eliminate virtually all vascular and pigmented lesions and treat acne; all with minimal downtime.
IPL delivers an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by specific blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas in the dermis depending on the condition being treated. This light is converted to heat and is absorbed by the cells being targeted, while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.
The skin being treated is additionally protected by a dynamic cooling method, which delivers a cooling mist on to the skin before the laser pulse is emitted.
A complete consultation is required. Contact Leif Rogers, M.D., FACS Plastic Surgery to see if IPL might be right for you.
