How Does Photo Rejuvenation Work?
The IPL Laser uses specialized hand pieces that filter light to target different skin conditions such as blood vessels, skin discoloration, and pigmented lesions. Each band of the laser’s light spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sun spot removal and vessel clearance. The photo-rejuvenation hand-piece emits pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sun spots and by the blood in visible vessels which typically fade within two weeks after treatment.
How is the Icon’s Photo Rejuvenation Pulsed Light Different from Other Laser Platforms?
Pulsed light systems and lasers are very similar, but our advanced pulsed light system utilized uses a much larger treatment window than most lasers. This spreads light over a wider area of skin that allows for faster coverage of the skin and quicker treatments.
What Areas of the Body May be Treated by Pulsed Light?
The only area that can and should not be treated with pulse light lasers is around the eyes. All other areas of the body can benefit from IPL photo skin rejuvenation including the face, neck, chest, arms, back, and legs.
What Does the Photo Rejuvenation Procedure Feel Like?
Treatments are virtually painless. The esthetician will move the hand piece over your skin that blinks, sending a beam of light through your skin. All you will notice is a the flash of the light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation during each pulse.
