Intense Pulsed Light
Our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial system offers comfortable and effective photofacials for the treatment of sun damage and visible veins. Advantages include avoiding surgery and potential skin destruction.
IPL uses short bursts of high energy light to penetrate into the skin and correct a variety of abnormalities. It has been used to effectively treat the redness associated with rosacea, removal of broken facial veins and brown spots associated with sun damage.
IPL is similar to laser therapies in that it uses a beam of light to target pigmentation and wrinkles and eliminate them with heat. However, instead of using just one color, or wavelength, of light, IPL uses a range of wavelengths. This gives Dr Dang-Vu the ability to adjust how deep in the skin the light goes and what structures it targets. Different structures in the skin absorb different wavelengths of the light more effectively. This prevents the use of excessive energy and damage to other layers of the skin. The best results are usually delivered in a series of treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. There is limited downtime, no anesthesia involved, and minimal discomfort.
Use intense pulsed light therapy to treat problems like hands, arms, chest, neck, and face. You can also target issues like rosacea, spider veins, and brown spots.
