Photofacials and Acne Treatment
Lumenis IPL Technology improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries to give the skin a smoother, more even tone through a process called Photorejuvenation. This process helps restore a more youthful appearance without the downtime of other methods. These treatments are recognized for a very high measure of patient satisfaction because the process treats the full face, neck, chest or hands, rather than addressing a single isolated area or imperfection. With a series of treatments, IPL technology can help restore a more youthful appearance without downtime or a prolonged recovery. Skin will look refreshed and rejuvenated. Improvement in tone and texture of skin is experienced. You will see a significant reduction of brown and red spots, small red blood vessels and/or spider veins. Pore size will be minimized and redness reduction will be evident in individuals with rosacea or abnormal flushing. IPL also targets the sebaceous gland where oil is secreted and eliminates it. By getting rid of the sebaceous glands and the oil, acne is diminished. Your skin will have an overall healthier appearance and glow

It is advisable for patients to follow up at least once a year, after completion of the initial treatment.
