Intense Pulsed Light
(IPL) Treatments

A clear complexion is something many people want, but even with the most meticulous skincare regimen, blemish-free skin can be difficult to achieve. Photorejuvenation or Photofacial, which uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, can help reduce the appearance of some of the most common skin woes, including brown spots, melasma, broken capillaries, and sun spots. This minimally invasive skin procedure can also treat signs of aging such as wrinkles or age spots.

When to Consider Photo-rejuvenation

If you want to improve the look of your skin without undergoing a full surgical procedure, if you have redness, brown spots or scarring on your skin, or If you would like to reduce pore size, fine wrinkles and improve skin texture, then a photo-rejuvenation treatment may right for you.

"In just 10 days my sun spots were almost gone. After two weeks there were only red shading of the area treated and that started fading too. I would definitely have this done again. Thanks!"

Unwanted Skin Pigmentation

Have you noticed unwanted pigmentation, sun spots or age spots, also known as “liver spots” on the skin of your face, chest or hands? Wouldn’t you love it if these telltale signs of aging and sun damage could be almost magically lifted and removed without the need for a deep chemical peel or painful dermabrasion procedure? Well your prayers have been answered, yes, it is now possible to remove this unwanted pigment through a process known as intense pulsed light or more commonly the “Photofacial”, offered at Renove Med Spa in Rehoboth Beach, by Dr. Michelle Parsons. 

 

Typically ninety to ninety-five percent of the pigment can be removed in a single treatment, which takes less than 30 minutes to accomplish. Dr. Parsons has been performing photofacials in Rehoboth Beach since 2006 and has the most experience in the area and performs each photofacial herself, never delegating this procedure to a non-physician. 

 

The decollete or chest is another area that often shows signs of sun damage and can exaggerate your age. Intense pulsed light works very well for correcting the damage in this area, though more than one treatment is often needed due to the more extensive pigmentation most women have here. Though once corrected, treating the chest is very rejuvenating!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Parsons’ photofacial treatment uses full spectrum natural light, not a laser or other harmful rays, that is applied to the skin being treated in a series of about 30 pulses. Immediately following the treatment you will feel a sensation similar to a sunburn, which will last 45 minutes to as long as 2 hours. Afterward, your skin will feel normal and you can even apply makeup. Over the next 12 to 24 hours the unwanted pigment, which has absorbed the natural light energy, will darken and begin to work its way to the surface of the skin where is can finally be naturally exfoliated over the next three to seven days. Unlike deep laser resurfacing techniques or chemical peels, there is no downtime, no damage to the overlying skin, without the need to avoid going out in public or dealing with messy dressings. 

Intense Pulsed Light treatments are also effective for treating facial redness, flushing and Rosacea as well has small facial veins typically found around the nose.

Pros

  • Little to no downtime

  • Relatively long-lasting improvements in skin quality and texture can be achieved

  • Can be performed anywhere on the body 

 

Cons

  • Several treatments may be required before full effects are seen

  • Not as effective for tanned or darker skin

  • Must stay out of the sun after each treatment

 

These are the top three pros and cons to weigh when considering IPL  Photorejuvenation. If you want to focus on what is unique to you, please consult with your aesthetic plastic surgeon.
