Photo Facial using Intense Pulsed Light / IPL® technology using Cutera LimeLight, is a breakthrough treatment that can dramatically improve various skin conditions. Pulses of visible light penetrate through the skin, without injuring the surrounding healthy skin and effectively treating the following conditions:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Redness and flushing
- Broken capillaries
- Fine wrinkles
- Enlarged pore
- Small facial veins (telangiectasia)
- Solar lentigines (freckles)
- Redspots (hemangiomas)
- Café Au Lait maculae
- Port wine stains
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH IPL®
The IPL® photo-rejuvenation treatment provides long-term improvement of complexion and texture of the skin. Each non-invasive treatment regenerates and stimulates the collagen production, resulting in a natural youthful appearance. During the recovery period, patients must wear sunblock and recommended products to ensure optimal results. Patients are able to return to work and their normal daily activity as soon as they are finished with the IPL procedure.
While the results from an IPL treatment can be long lasting, the normal aging process will continue and may result in new areas of damage. When this occurs, patients are able to return to Lotus Laser & Spa for a new round of IPL therapy.
HOW MANY PHOTOFACIAL TREATMENT SESSIONS
The treatment is performed in several sessions, based on the severity of the individual’s skin condition. By dividing the full program into several sessions, the procedure provides gradual improvement preserving the wonderful “no down time” feature that is appreciated by many people. The treatments may be done on any area, but are most effective on the face, chest, arms and hands and are usually repeated at 3-4 week intervals.
WHY CHOOSE IPL® TREATMENT OVER OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS
Other treatments such as laser resurfacing often send patients into hiding, as they wait for redness and swelling to subside.
Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive. IPL® treatment is recommended for patients who simply want to revitalize and redefine their appearance without down time.
