Facial Rejuvenation with elos Plus by Syneron
IPL Facial Rejuvenation is the safest, and most effective way to treat rosacea,
pigmented lesions, sun damage, broken blood vessels, and age spots. A series of gentle-pulsed light treatments result in more youthful looking skin.
The treatment is designed to improve the visible appearance of the skin with only minor downtime.
Freckle and Sunspot Treatment in San AntonioIPL Photofacials also induce collagen production. Photofacials are best supported by a sound home care regimen that includes growth factors and SPF 30+ sunscreen.
During IPL Facial Rejuvenation, intense light waves are pulsed onto the affected areas of the skin. The light passes through normal tissue and concentrates on tissue that has a red or brown discoloration, heating and breaking up the pigment to bring it to the surface of the skin.
Over the course of a week or two, the darker pigment is sloughed off during daily washing and showering activity, leaving the skin refreshed and smoother with less discoloration and more even tone.
Multiple treatments (4 to 6) are recommended at intervals a month apart for the best results. Each treatment takes approximately 1 hour depending on the size of the treatment area. IPL Photofacial treatments can be done on any part of the body that has freckles: face, neck, chest, arms, shoulders, back and legs.
For Rosacea Treatment
IPL treatments can also be used in the treatment of rosacea. Rosacea is a common, chronic condition of the face characterized by redness, dilated blood vessels and frequently-developing pustules and swelling. Blushing is its most devastating characteristic. Because Rosacea is a chronic condition that can only be treated and not cured, ongoing maintenance IPL treatments are necessary to keep the redness and capillary dilation at bay.
IPL Facial Rejuvenation is best suited for people with light to medium skin tones. In addition, the perfect candidate cannot be tanned in any way from the sun or a spray-on tan.
