IPL Photo Rejuvenation
What is IPL Photo Rejuvenation (IPL)?
IPL Photo Rejuvenation (IPL) technology is a treatment breakthrough that Dr. Gordon uses to correct a variety of benign skin conditions in her Mountain View dermatology practice, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins and other blemishes that concern our patients. IPL offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to the individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction through a new process called photorejuvenation.
How is Photorejuvenation performed by Jean Gordon MD?
A cold gel is typically applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL hand piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required. Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4 to 6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction by our patients. Each treatment takes approximately twenty minutes.
Why are multiple IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions Jean Gordon MD is treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of four to six treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk, and it preserves the wonderful “no down time” feature that people appreciate so much.
How do other treatments compare to Photorejuvenation?
While there are lasers that treat telangiectasia and broken capillaries, other lasers that treat benign brown pigments and others yet that are used for resurfacing facial skin, no technology provides the long-term improvement of complexion and texture of the IPL Skin treatment using Photorejuvenation program – all without the slightest interruption of your busy lifestyle.
What conditions can Photorejuvenation treat?
Imperfections from sun damage and photo-aging. Facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel. IPL technology helps create smoother looking skin. After a series of IPL treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation in your complexion. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms and hands.
