Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photorejuvenation is a revolutionary cosmetic and reconstructive procedure that treats skin damage due to photoaging and years of sun exposure. This anti-aging skin care breakthrough uses a safe, non-invasive technique to treat damaged skin.
IPL photorejuvenation in Annapolis is one of several services provided by Dr. Elba Pacheco, founder of The Center for Eye and Laser Surgery and Adoro Medical Spa.The IPL cosmetic procedure, approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is considered the gold standard for photorejuvenation.
Many options exist today to treat damaged skin and improve its appearance — options that range from skin creams and chemical peels to microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing. But the groundbreaking IPL process is the most versatile treatment of all.
Microdermabrasion is often ineffective for some complexion problems, such as broken capillaries. Laser treatments and chemical peels require a period of recovery time, as patients wait for the redness and swelling to subside. Surgery, such as face lifts and other procedures, are invasive treatments that require even more recovery time.
Unlike these common procedures, Intense Pulsed Light is a much less invasive skin treatment. The procedure uses a range of light wavelengths to target skin discoloration. It targets pigment and blood while sparing other skin structures. Since it does not disrupt the skin’s surface, the treatment has a very low risk for complications. And it requires little to no recovery time.
Many doctors use this innovative patented technology to treat a variety of benign skin conditions and discoloration. Annapolis IPL photorejuvenation offers dramatic results for age spots, sun freckles, rosacea, birthmarks, acne scars, spider veins, and other skin blemishes. Doctors sometimes use IPL to treat red or dark skin spots that may be at risk for cancer. The procedure can even treat unwanted hair.
