Photorejuvenation refers to the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat conditions related to sun-induced skin damage. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light which is primarily absorbed by melanin and is effective in reducing the appearance of sun spots, capillaries, elastosis and fine lines. It is a great treatment for patients who suffer from Rosacea and redness of the skin.
At Aesthetics International Dubai we use Lumenis IPL, which has long been considered the gold standard in photorejuvenation treatments.
You can use different IPL treatments based on your needs. Our Photo Facial treatment is designed to help you improve the skin quality on different problem areas. Options include:
– IPL Pigmentation to deal with dark spots
– IPL Rejuvenation for overall skin treatment
– IPL Rosacea for reducing facial redness
– IPL Vascular Therapy for treating the broken capillaries on face
– IPL Acne therapy to treat acne and acne scars
The treatment typically starts with a cleansing which removes dirt, ensuring the treatment will be effective. A cold gel is then applied to the skin to minimize the heat sensation. During the treatment, high energy light pulses are made to penetrate deep into your skin layer. The aesthetician can control the intensity or wavelength of the light pulses. These light waves destroy the dead skin cells and increase the production of collagen (the protein which is responsible for skin firmness and elasticity).When the amount of collagen in skin is increased, your skin becomes more supple and smooth, and the growth of new skin cells is encouraged.
IPL or PhotoFacial is good for those who suffer from Rosacea, redness, broken capillaries, spider veins, pigmentation, acne or are in need of overall skin rejuvenation.
Results can be seen after your first treatment, however they are enhanced over a course of treatments so more than one session is recommended.
We recommend you take advantage of our free consultations with one of our therapists first so they can analyse your skin and advise a treatment plan for your skin.
*Every patient is a unique individual and every treatment has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient
We recommend at least 3 treatments before the desired result is achieved.
Whilst there is no significant downtime after an IPL treatment, it is important to ensure that the treated area of skin isn’t exposed to direct sunlight because tanning post treatment sessions can increase melanin regeneration, which is likely to result in hyperpigmentation.
