Your mother may have cautioned that you should never give away your age. That’s good advice and with today’s amazing anti-aging aesthetic treatments, you don’t have to.
The effects of the environment, especially the sun, your genetics and time itself may have left you with age-revealing spots. These spots are usually harmless but they can definitely give away your age. Age spots typically appear on skin that has had the most cumulative sun exposure over the years – the backs of your hands, your shoulders, neck and face.
Dr. Price has the perfect solution for these age-revealing spots. It’s a non-invasive, breakthrough treatment called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or PhotoRejuvenation therapy. He uses the the Icon™ optimized pulsed light system which, unlike lasers, uses many wavelengths of light with special filters that deliver the best wavelengths to treat your specific aesthetic conditions. IPL is effective on age spots, freckles, birthmarks and spider veins and it rejuvenates your facial skin.
An IPL treatment works by emitting many wavelengths of light that are absorbed by brown spots, veins, and red spots. The area to be treated is prepared with a cool gel. Then a hand-piece is used to gently pulse an intense light over the area, penetrating the skin and destroying the melanin-producing cells. The generated heat impairs the vessels or lesions without damaging the skin’s surface. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes.
- Immediately after the treatment, you may feel a mild sunburn-like sensation around the treatment site. Your skin will be cleaned and sunscreen applied. Sunscreen of at least SPF45 or greater must be worn for at least a month following the treatment.
- Healing begins immediately. The spots may darken before they flake off or are absorbed by the body.
- Discomfort is minimal and most of our patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately.
