The IPL device emits light waves in a radius that can be adjusted to target hemoglobin (the red blood cell in blood vessels) and melanin (the brown pigment found in freckles or age spots). The light waves travel through the epidermis and are absorbed by either hemoglobin or melanin. This results in the destruction of the vessel wall or fragmentation of melanin. The melanin pigment and tiny vessels are then, absorbed by the body making them less obvious.
IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?
Are you a good candidate for IPL?
Photofacials or photorejuvenation using IPL are the latest developments in dermatology. They allow patients to achieve a radiant, even-toned complexion by transforming skin that might be blotchy or sun-damaged.
Intense pulses of light penetrate deeply into the skin causing the collagen and blood vessels under the epidermis to contract. This results in reduced redness, lightened age spots, and diminished fine lines.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT?
Your treatment will begin with a consultation. Then, before treatment starts, the skin is cleansed with Vivier Hexam Cleanser. Next, we will apply ultrasound gel to the treatment area. IPL causes very little discomfort.
Clients describe the sensation as a rubber band snapping against the skin. (If desired, a topical numbing lotion can be applied before treatment.) After the treatment, a cool compress is applied. Finally, we
finish with creams based on your skin type and SPF. We recommend that patients undergo 3-5 photorejuvenation sessions every 4 weeks to achieve their desired results.
Your face will appear red immediately after the procedure. However, this should disappear within a few hours. Results should be visible within 24 hours.
The IPL may leave you with darker areas, but these will disappear over a few days. Each session will reveal a more youthful, smoother, and even-toned complexion.
This non-invasive procedure causes very little pain and clients can return to their normal activities immediately.
