How it works:
Treatment areas: Face, nose, cheeks, chin
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) latest technology has designed a safe and non-evasive way to treat facial and body vascular blemishes.
Threadlike vessels can easily be diminished quickly with the new medical technology that utilizes light waves. A Yag laser is used for this treatment. Filtered, wide spectrum light from the handpiece penetrates the skin utilizing both light and heat energy and is absorbed by the oxyhaemoglobin (found in the blood vessel), heating it to a point where the vessel is destroyed. The heat from the thermal activity makes the vessel coagulate and then the damaged vessel tissues are reabsorbed by the body leaving the skin clear of blemish and collagen cells replaces it. Results will take about a month to 6 weeks to see. Sometimes individual vessels will go in a single treatment; sometimes 2 -3 visits are necessary.
Diffuse redness may take 2 – 4 treatments to reduce from a dense, high color in the area to a much calmer look. Rosacea, (facial inflammation), spider veins, broken capillaries, telangiectasias, fine capillary vessel damage, reddened skin from sun damage, port wine stains, and hemangiomas.
Intense pulsed light can treat all these skin conditions safely and effectively leaving the skin tone even and refreshed. Say good-bye to unsightly facial red veins forever!
