Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a laser treatment that targets both redness/broken blood vessels and pigmentation caused by skin aging and sun damage. There is minimal downtime with the treatment. Often slight pinkness of the skin can occur that may last for up to 3 days, and areas of pigmentation may temporarily turn darker before resolving. A series of 3-4 treatments is recommended, spaced 1 month apart for the best results. Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, chest, forearms, and hands. Make an appointment for a consultation regarding your skin concerns and to see if IPL is the right treatment for you.
Non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing can erase years of sun damage by increasing collagen production and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. This technology delivers heat into the skin through thousands of microscopic columns that stimulate collagen remodeling. Surrounding skin is unaffected thus allowing the skin to recover more quickly and with less downtime than traditional resurfacing lasers.
Best results are achieved in a series of 3-4 treatments. There is minimal downtime with this procedure: slight redness, swelling and mild peeling of the skin can occur after treatment for up to 3-5 days. The procedure provides excellent results for a more youthful appearance.
