Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Systems

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

Pulsed light systems and lasers are very similar and treat lesions in basically the same way. However, the RejuveLux process uses a new technology that removes lesions much faster than lasers. Treatments can fit even the busiest person's schedule.

Intense Pulsed Light is effective for the treatment of Rosacea and red flushed skin, age spots, freckles, red and brown birthmarks, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), sun damage and broken veins.

The medical spa treatments are quick and easy. After your initial preparation, your treatment provider will move the Palomar Pulsed Light hand piece over your skin. The hand piece emits a light that breaks up the pigment in the lesions. Most people perceive the light as a gentle "snapping" sensation, which causes little to no discomfort.

Pigmented lesions will darken slightly after treatment, and then fade away after about 10-14 days. Most people experience some mild temporary redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, in the treated are shortly after treatment. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will still be mild and temporary. There are other less likely side effects that will be explained to you at your initial consultation.

Vessels (visible veins) generally undergo immediate graying or blanching and the surrounding area may redden. The vessels then fade after about 10-14 days.

Photofacial, or photorejuvination, with the Palomar MediLux Intensed Pulsed Light system will provide a noticeable improvement in tone and texture of most skin types with no down time.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
