IPL PhotoFacials is a state of the art procedure also effective in reducing the appearance of sun and age spots, brown pigmented legions, and broken capillaries; tighting pores and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone, reduce pore size, and clear sun damage.
The success achieved with Green Peel® treatments may be compared with the result of chemical peelings, dermabrasion or the months-lasting application of Retinol Acid.
Some people experience facial redness, inflammation, burning or warm tingly sensations. As the disease progresses, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on and around the reddened area; however, unlike acne, there are no blackheads. Some patients suffer from inflamed pustules or spots.
Rosacea is primarily a disorder of the facial blood vessels that undergo changes and become hyper responsive to internal and external triggers such as sun exposure, heat, rich foods, caffeine and alcohol.
Intense Pulsed Light therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to treat dilated blood vessels in the face. The vascular structures which are responsible for causing Rosacea respond to the precise energy level and wavelength of light that is emitted via the laser. The small spot of laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within these vessels. The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function of the vessel. Over time, the vessel is absorbed by the body and disappears from sight. This leads to reduction of the redness and flushing appearance of facial skin.
