IPL Intense Pulse Light Brown Spot Removal

Photorejuvenation is great for improving and removing the red and brown dyschromia in the skin which is why it is great for rosacea by attracting the tiny little vessels in the skin and sun spots which is pigmentation.
Post treatment, pigmentation may appear darker which is completely normal. These darkened areas will fade and crust off. Overall, it is a great anti-aging treatment and you will notice an overall glow and evenness in the weeks following your treatment.

IPL is perfect for those with freckles and visible sun damage that are superficial. It is not suitable for darker skin types as well as those with larger patches of pigment. It is superficial, therefore it brightens the skin however, it does not provide deep skin rejuvenation. It is great for those who want to remove pigment or maintain a youthful appearance.

Photorejuvenation For Spots Procedure

When you come in for your first photo rejuvenation or photorejuvenation treatment, we will begin by cleansing the skin. The face is mapped out or divided in small sections to ensure even coverage. Goggles are placed over the client’s eyes for safety. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin. The photo rejuvenation hand piece is applied to the skin one pulse at a time. You will feel a sharp pinch with every photorejuvenation pulse.
