Pigmentation & Broken Capillaries

IPL Photo Rejuvenation
Intense Pulsed Light (IPLTM) skin treatments using the photo-rejuvenation process represent a breakthrough in age-defying skin. This new technique treats damage skin non-invasively, with no disruption of the skin's epidermal surface. IPL treatments address the effects of photo aging and sun damage with low risk of complications and no recovery time.

IPLTM Quantum is the gold standard for photo-rejuvenation. This is FDA-cleared, with technology that provides dramatic results for a variety of skin conditions, including age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, broken capillaries, acne scarring and other blemishes.

The visible signs of aging cannot be fully avoided, but can be dramatically minimized. The rate of these events is genetically determined for each person; the process first becomes noticeable between the ages of 30 and 35. Ageing results from exposure to the environment.

It is the critical element in determining who looks older or younger than their biological age. Exposure to sunlight is a key contributor to aging. Photo aging occurs, when collagen and elastin breakdown are not replaced within the skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles to intensify. Photo aging also causes pigment changes with development of age spots (sun-induced freckles) and uneven skin tone. Dilated capillaries are another sign of photo aged skin. Lifestyle choices also have an impact on aging. Cigarette smoking contributes to the breakdown of elastin and collagen and impairs the body's healing capacity.

Benign Vascular Lesions: Broken Veins and Capillaries
The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure, and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of them to break appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.
