Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL photo rejuvenation offers men and women the opportunity to turn back the clock by erasing skin imperfections such as wrinkles, age spots, and broken facial veins. Skin resurfacing in Orlando using our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system dramatically improves the skin tone and texture of our patients. And here's a plus: there's no downtime.
During IPL therapy, we use intense light pulses to treat concerns resulting from aging and the environment, including:
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
- Reddened, flushed skin caused by rosacea
- Red or brown birthmarks
Before your IPL treatment, Dr. Spence and his clinical staff will meet with you and discuss how to prepare. You'll also receive specific instructions to follow after your treatment. We provide this consultation to ensure that you can enjoy the beautiful results you desire. Prior to the treatment, you will need to:
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning 2 weeks prior to treatment
- Discontinue any use of Retin-A two weeks before your treatment
- Halt any medications that cause sun sensitivity or increase bleeding
During your treatment, the IPL device delivers energy to your skin, targeting vascular and pigmented lesions as well as other blemishes in the skin. The procedure itself only takes 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Our patients often combine their treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic or an injectable filler for more complete rejuvenation.
After the Treatment
Most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, following the treatment. However, these symptoms typically last only for a few hours after treatment, and you can resume your normal activities after your appointment. As your body's natural healing occurs, you will enjoy a revitalized appearance, including smoother skin with enhanced facial color and tone.
