Erase the Signs of Aging

Both the pleasures and stresses of life take their toll and cause our skin to look older. Sun exposure, the major culprit of skin damage, only compounds the signs of aging. All of a sudden, you notice a few fine lines here, some coarse patches there, uneven coloration and the odd unattractive age spot.

Now suppose you could pass your hand in front of your face, and take two, five, even 10 years off your appearance? It may not be quite that easy, but anti-aging and skin-enhanced beauty certainly has come a long way. A remarkable new technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation can erase the signs of aging and take years off your face with a very special flash of light.

Reeling in the Years

As we age, our skin experiences various natural and environmental changes that are associated with the following:

  • Redness, including the symptoms of rosacea, flushing, and broken blood vessels
  • Pigment discoloration, such as freckles and age spots
  • Poor skin texture evidenced by enlarged pores, coarseness, and loss of smoothness and elasticity
  • Sun damage characterized by fine lines and mottled coloration
  • Similar imperfections on non-facial areas like the neck, chest or hands

Diving Into The Fountain of Youth

From creams and peels to microdermabrasion and lasers, there are several approaches to restore a youthful appearance. But can any of them provide significant improvement without interrupting your daily routine?

According to experts, the ideal anti-aging weapon would:

  • Erase the signs of aging
  • Treat both the complexion and texture of your entire face
  • Be virtually pain-free
  • Provide a gradual, natural-looking improvement
  • Produce long-lasting results
  • Offer a speedy recovery and immediate return to routine activities.

Sound like the undiscovered fountain of youth? Not any more — IPL Photorejuvenation is the real thing and more popular than ever. Thanks to kinder, gentler treatments and technological advances, you and your physician can restore a youthful look that’s skin deep and reflects how vibrant you feel on the inside.

The Light That Erases Skin Damage

The latest age-defying breakthrough in aesthetic skin care, IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that simultaneously improves a variety of facial concerns. The therapeutic light energy erases the skin damage while it protects the healthy surrounding skin. Using the latest generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, this treatment also acts on the collagen beneath the surface. Skin improves with an even-colored tone, smaller pore size, smooth texture, radiant complexion, and an overall revitalized appearance.

Unlike many conventional cosmetic laser procedures, IPL Photorejuvenation refreshes the entire face and provides noticeable, but subtle results achieved over several treatment sessions. This gradual approach allows you to return quickly to work or routine activities without a recovery period. It also minimizes any discomfort and the likelihood of side effects. From fine lines, age spots and broken capillaries to enlarged pores, coarse skin and mottled pigmentation, IPL Photorejuvenation eliminates the signs of aging while it restores a youthful smoothness with high satisfaction.


IPL Photorejuvenation At A Glance

  • Gentle, safe, non-invasive, non-ablative, virtually pain-free
  • Corrects redness, age spots, complexion flaws, fine lines, poor tone, pigment irregularities, and more
  • Treats the entire face, plus the neck, chest and hands
  • Administered in a series of four to six 20-minute procedures
  • No “down time” or interference with active lifestyles
  • Ideal for males and females of nearly any age
  • Long-lasting results for individuals of all skin types and colors


What You Can Expect From IPL

The IPL Photorejuvenation program generally consists of four to six treatment sessions at three-week intervals. Similar to many spa services, a typical session lasts about twenty minutes so you can actually schedule an appointment during the lunch hour.

A major advantage of IPL technology is its broad, adjustable spectrum of light. This unique feature allows your doctor to customize treatment according to your specific condition and skin type, producing a more pleasing and natural-looking result than can be achieved with laser systems.

Prior to treatment, a cool gel is applied to the skin, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is then used to administer pulses of light to your face. You may a feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band. However, local anesthesia or pain medication is seldom required. It’s quick, easy and virtually painless.

Another reason why IPL Photorejuvenation is so successful is that it is a true “multi-tasker.” It improves redness and broken blood vessels, erases age spots and areas of skin discoloration, as well as reaches down to the level of collagen to enhance your skin tone and texture. More effective than creams and medications, IPL Photorejuvenation also offers relief from the symptoms of rosacea, including flushing. Furthermore, results are excellent on other sensitive body areas, like the back of your hands, chest and neck. This versatility sets IPL Photorejuvenation apart from any other treatment approach.
