Photorejuvenation with IPL is the most versatile of all treatment options.
Patients often schedule appointments during their lunch hours. IPL can treat numerous skin conditions at once. It is effective on red blemishes that originate from blood vessels, as well as brown pigment blemishes in the form of freckles, age spots and other sun damage. IPL also treats the neck, chest and hands, where sun damage is often most visible.
Our experience staff at Aromas Medspa in Doral and Kendall will determine an IPL treatment plan for each new patient, accounting for the number and severity of skin conditions being treated, as well as skin type. On average, four to six treatments are recommended, scheduled at three-week intervals. Each session usually lasts about 20 minutes, with patients returning to normal activity immed iately afterwards. IPL treatments provide gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results.
The science of light: IPL helps restore the Skin’s Youthful Glow. The Intense Pulsed Light [IPL] machine delivers light to the skin in millisecond bursts heating the dermis without any damage to the outer skin (epidermis). This process, known as photo rejuvenation, gradually and safely improves the skin’s tone and texture with no downtime.
Not all IPL machines are alike. The most powerful and versatile IPL photofacial machine is available at Aromas Medspa in Doral, Miami and Kendall, where our team of Health Care Providers have expertly performed photofacial treatments for many years and regularly recommends IPL photofacial rejuvenation for healthy, revitalized skin.
IPL is meant to treat a variety of skin conditions and is an extremely effective way to repair sun damage,remove red and brown spots, reduce wrinkles, decrease pore size, as a spider vein treatment , and as a treatment for scars.
Generally, three to six IPL treatments are needed to create a more youthful and healthy appearance.
IPL is the gold standard for photorejuvenation. This FDA-cleared, patented technology provides dramatic results for a variety of benign conditions, including age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, unsightly veins, acne scarring and other blemishes — even unwanted hair.
Why choose IPL over other treatment options? Laser resurfacing and deep chemical peels often send patients into hiding, as they wait for redness and swelling to subside. Microdermabrasion addresses skin irregularities, but is not effective against all complexion problems including redness, flushing and broken capillaries. Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive for younger patients and “baby boomers” who simply want to revitalize their appearance without recovery downtime.
The visible signs of aging cannot be fully avoided, but can be dramatically minimized. The key is to do it as gently as possible. As far as the skin is concerned there are two types of aging — intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic aging involves the inevitable; as we grow older, our skin naturally becomes thinner and drier. Diminished amounts of collagen makes the skin less elastic. What used to bounce back begins to sag. Static, deep wrinkles may begin appearing. The rate of these events is genetically determined for each person; the process first becomes noticeable between the ages of 30 and 35.
Extrinsic aging results from exposure to the environment. Extrinsic aging is the critical element in determining who looks older or younger than their biological age. Exposure to sunlight is a key contributor to extrinsic aging. Photoaging occurs when elastin and a collagen breakdown are not replaced, causing fine lines and wrinkles to intensify. Photoaging also causes pigment changes with development of age spots (sun-induced freckles) and uneven skin tone.
Spider veins and dilated capillaries are another sign of photoaged skin. Lifestyle choices also have an impact on extrinsic aging. Cigarette smoking contributes to the breakdown of elastin and collagen and impairs the body’s healing capacity.
