Photo rejuvenation, also known as Intense pulsed light (IPL) or photofacial treatment, is a non-invasive treatment that gently, safely, and effectively treats sun damage and the signs of aging. The best IPL treatments in NYC correct brown spots, sun damage, irregular skin pigmentation, as well as rosacea, wrinkles, laxity, enlarged pores, and spider veins.
This advanced technology delivers a broad spectrum of light to the skin through gentle pulses. Each flash of light transmits energy that targets brown spots and discoloration. When the targeted areas absorb the light, they darken and the surrounding skin may appear pink. This appearance lasts a few hours or a few days, depending on the patient’s individual healing process.
In the weeks following the treatment, the darkened spots will flake off and fade while facial capillaries and diffused redness will decrease. The body’s natural healing process will begin to rejuvenate the sun-damaged skin, providing an overall more youthful appearance.
As with any medical skin procedure, it is important that this treatment be performed by an experienced professional for the best result and to minimize the chance for complications.
