The Infinity Medical Group offers intense pulsed light laser skin rejuvenation treatment, often called photo-facial or photo-rejuvenation therapy. IPL laser skin rejuvenation is a non-cosmetic skin treatment ideal for correcting skin irregularities, like scarring and uneven pigmentation and reducing the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
The intense pulses of light of the treatment pass through the top layer of the skin to reach the blood vessels, pigment cells, and collagen protein of the layers below. These pulses increase the body’s production of collagen, which reduces fine lines, pore size, and acne scars. Increased collagen production tightens the skin and improves skin elasticity.
The ability of IPL laser skin rejuvenation to reach deeper into the layers of the skin allows it also to target broken blood vessels, capillaries, as well as red spots caused by rosacea, and brown spots like sun spots or melasma. IPL laser skin rejuvenation is beneficial to patients with roughly textured skin, caused by sun damage. Its ability to reach beyond the epidermis means that patients typically bypass periods of redness and peeling that is a side effect of traditional laser skin resurfacing treatment.
IPL laser skin rejuvenation is typically performed on the face, neck, and chest, but can be used anywhere on the body. The procedure takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour. After the procedure, patients with brown spots will experience darkening of the spot and flaking, and some patients may experience purple discoloration in the treated area.
