What is it?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation is Forever Young's exciting new breakthrough service, which uses a broad spectrum of light to produce remarkable results on a wide range of skin conditions. By promoting the production of new collagen, you can reduce the appearance of common problems such as fine lines, age spots, sun-induced freckles, acne rosaceas, and broken capillaries.
It can safely treat imperfections on your face, neck chest, arms, and hands. A minimally-invasive treatment that can be tailored to the individual, there is only a few days of downtime for the procedure and it can be combined with other treatments such as Botox® and collagen.
A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. Pulses of light that penetrate deep down are applied to the skin through a smooth glass handpiece. You may feel a slight sting, best likened to the snapping of a rubber band, but while anesthetic cream is available it is rarely needed.
The treatment is usually performed in a series of four to six sessions of about twenty minutes each. This allows gradual improvement with very low risk and no downtime. You will possibly be able to return to work the same day and continue with your daily routine immediately. Individual results may vary, please consult your doctor to see if you are a good candidate.
