Pulsed light devices deliver energy to target and destroy vascular and pigmented lesions associated with spider veins, facial vesssels, rosacea, sun damage, age spots from hands, legs, chest, arms and face. Using the principle of selective photothermolysis, these treatments target different chromophores in the skin, which selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and yield the desired response.
Acne IPL treatments with Palomar® technology target and destroy the skin bacteria responsible for acne to help prevent future breakouts from occurring on faces, chests and backs. To treat acne scars, we use pulses of laser light to coagulate scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients' skin. Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and clients feel little to no pain.
Facial Blood Vessels
The broken blood vessels that occur so frequently on the face, especially the nose and cheeks, can now be cleared using intensed pulsed light. This advanced IPL allows the removal of these vessels without bruising or crusting at the treatment sites. There is a transient pinkness that develops in the treated area that may last1 1 ½ hours. Make-up can be immediately applied after the treatment if desired. Usually 2 to 3 treatment sessions are needed depending on the number of blood vessels present.
Brown Age Spots
The unsightly flat brown spots that occur frequently in sun-exposed areas, e.g. the face and hands, can be removed using the Intense Pulse Light treatments. After treatment, the skin in the areas treated will become dark and peel off in 7-10 days. Usually 2 to 4 treatments are needed to achieve the desired results. Adequate sunscreens are necessary at all times and the use of a skin lightening agent (e.g. dermaSpaRx Dermaluma) is also beneficial.
