This light-based skin treatment uses pulses of light energy to combat the visible effects of age and improve the general tone and texture of the skin. Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments gently heat the skin to break up unwanted pigmentation, reduce the appearance of rosacea and facial redness, and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. IPL treatments can be used to refresh and rejuvenate your skin and restore a brighter, younger-looking appearance.
IPL treatment sessions typically last between 30 and 40 minutes, depending on the area being treated, and have little to no downtime associated with them. Prior to your treatment, we will cleanse your skin and remove any makeup or oils from your skin. You may experience a mild pinching sensation, like a rubber band snapping against your skin, as the light energy pulses across the skin. We will provide you with protective eyewear to shield and protect your eyes for the duration of the treatment.
As the skin ages, two different kinds of wrinkles appear – static and dynamic. BOTOX® targets the dynamic wrinkles that develop in the forehead area as a result of repeated muscle contractions in the face over time, such as crows feet and frown lines. These visible signs of aging can cause you to look constantly tired or angry, but a treatment plan with BOTOX® can help rejuvenate your overall appearance.BOTOX® is injected directly into the facial muscles, where the protein solution temporarily blocks nerve signals from causing dynamic wrinkles. This causes the skin to smooth, adding alertness back to your brow area.
Most patients achieve optimal results with a series of three to five treatment sessions scheduled approximately three to four weeks apart. Some patients may require additional treatment sessions depending on their skin type, skin condition being treated, and their goals for treatment. Results may vary.
Most patients are able to immediately return to their regular activities following an IPL treatment session, though we recommend patients avoid spending time in the sun as this treatment can increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. If you plan to spend time exposed to the sun, we recommend you use additional sun protection and limit any direct exposure.
Some patients may experience some mild facial redness, tenderness, and/or swelling, similar to a mild sunburn, immediately after your treatment session. Any pigmented spots that are treated may become darker in color before peeling or flaking off in the days following your treatment session. These side effects are temporary and typically subside on their own within a week of your treatment session.
