IPL AFT PhotorejuvenationPhotorejuvenation uses non-invasive, painless pulses of light to improve not only sun spots and aging spots but also blood vessels and blotchy pigmentation.
Using a cold gel applied to the area to be treated, the IPL/AFT handpiece is gently applied to your skin as pulses of light are emitted. Usually, 4 or 5 treatment sessions, each lasting about 15 minutes, will provide you with beautiful results.
There is no recuperation time necessary, and no disruption to your active lifestyle. With an IPL/AFT treatment, you can return to work the same day or resume your normal activities. Patients typically notice a gradual, yet natural, looking improvement providing you with outstanding results.
IPL/AFT Photorejuvenation treatments can be given a “boost” by pre-treating the skin with Levulan solution; the IPL/AFT light then activates the medication on the skin. Several studies have shown an even greater improvement in skin texture and dyspigmentation than with IPL/AFT alone, with possibly fewer treatments required (all individuals are different, so it is impossible to predict results). A substantial added benefit is that PDT can effectively treat actinic keratoses (precancerous lesions) and acne. There is usually no greater downtime than with IPL/AFT alone; however, sun exposure must be strictly avoided for 24 hours following the procedure.
