PL Photorejuvenation, also known as IPL skin rejuvenation (IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light), is a cosmetic dermatology treatment designed to improve the texture and tone of aged and sun-damaged skin. The treatment is done with a laser/IPL device that emits a range of light waves which pass through the skin and are absorbed by melanin or hemoglobin causing damage to the fragmenting of the melanin pigment and the tiny vessels. The melanin pigments and tiny vessels then become less noticeable as a result of body absorption.
Considered as one of the most popular treatments in modern dermatology, IPL photorejuvenation Melbourne centres are helping many to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. Because this treatment encourages the production of collagen (a natural protein that fills in wrinkles), it has been helping people (mostly women) to reduce their signs of aging, such as lines and wrinkles, and enjoy a smoother and graceful skin. Simply said, with this treatment you will be able to get free from the effects of sun damage and signs of aging. Along with this, IPL is ideal for rosacea and hyper-pigmentation treatment, as well as freckles, broken capillaries and stretch marks.
Because it is a non-invasive procedure, IPL photorejuvenation allows a fast and convenient cosmetic improvement and with pretty much no risk or side-effects. Due to safety measures, before the treatment begins, you will be advised to wear protective eyewear so that your eyes are unharmed by the bright flashes of light. A gel with refreshing properties will then be applied to the chosen area to help keep the epidermis cool during the treatment and to lubricate the hand-piece as well. The entire procedure may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the skin. What makes it a great thing is it can be done on any area of the body, not strictly the face. With professional IPL photorejuvenation Melbourne centres, you are sure to find the optimal solution for your problems.
With this procedure there is also no negative outcome, making it the perfect solution for those with busy schedules. It involves minimal discomfort levels, while the redness and swelling that may occur after treatment tend to disappear shortly. Most benefits are seen in the weeks following the treatment. Although patients with more severe skin problems prior to treatment may experience longer recovery time, they are still amazed by the results, so it is worth all the wait.
The most important thing to remember after the IPL skin treatment is to keep yourself out of the sun for several days and not to forget to apply high factor sunscreen for a few weeks. With this skin treatment, you can expect to enjoy excellent results and know you have done the proper investment!
