What is Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is an umbrella term that applies to cosmetic and dermatological treatments that aim to improve the quality, look, tone, and overall health of a patient’s skin. Many of these treatments can be applied anywhere on the body including the abdomen, chest, and back. However, the ones that are most popular today tend to be applied on areas like the face, neck, chin, shoulders and hands. At our center, we provide skin rejuvenation with IPL treatments.
Skin rejuvenation can remedy or ease the symptoms of a host of skin conditions like:
• Wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines
• Folds around the nose and mouth
• Acne scars
• Visible blood vessels
• Loss of tone
• Sun damage
These treatments can be performed on a wide variety of patients regardless of gender or skin tone. Most people in generally good health make good candidates for IPL treatments.
Treatment sessions typically only take about 15 minutes to an hour to complete. They also require little if any downtime and allow people to get back to their normal routines quickly. During the recovery periods, however, patients may be advised to limit their activities, avoid heavy lifting for a day or two and wear sunscreen before going outside.
IPL therapy is a good option for those who want to revitalize their skin but cannot or do not want to undergo more aggressive options such as surgery. IPL is especially effective at treating skin conditions such as acne, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and more.
