IPL Photorejuvenation Chevy Chase
IPL Photorejuvenation can treat a variety of benign skin conditions.
The broad spectrum of light used in IPL Photorejuvenation treatments is absorbed by the target tissue, and is then removed by the body’s natural processes, providing dramatic improvements in the appearance of age spots, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, rosacea and more.
What Is IPL Photorejuvenation?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots, most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries.
IPL Photorejuvenation can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and high satisfaction.
How Does IPL Photorejuvenation Work?
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece through a small, smooth, transparent lightguide which gently place over your skin.
The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them.
The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.
IPL uses various wavelengths of light to target brown and red areas of skin without “downtime.”
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Following a series of 3-5 treatment sessions, brown spots and blotchiness are dramatically improved.
Where on the Body Can IPL Photorejuvenation by Used?
IPL Photorejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body.
