IPL Photorejuvenation Cleveland
The natural consequences of aging on our skin include sun damage, freckles, age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. Photorejuvenation reduces these signs of aging using non-invasive pulses of light to produce clear, vibrant-looking skin that you can be proud of.
Preparing for Photorejuvenation
Patients should notify us of any medications they are taking or any recent procedures, as these may interfere with treatment. We will advise you if and when medications should be discontinued. In addition, patients with a history of scarring, bleeding, keloid formation or poor healing may want to reconsider treatment with photorejuvenation.
Photorejuvenation works by using non-invasive pulses of light to even out pigmentation, reduce redness and stimulate collagen growth for an overall fuller and younger-looking appearance. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, similar to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
Recovery from Photorejuvenation
There is typically no recovery time and low risk of complications. However, patients will need to protect their skin from the sun after treatment, as it will be more sensitive than normal.
Results of Photorejuvenation
Multiple sessions are performed every few weeks until the desired result has been achieved. Results will be noticeable after the first few treatments and will continue to improve as treatment progresses.
Side Effects Associated with Photorejuvenation
Patients often look as though they have a sunburn for several hours after treatment. Although rare, there is a risk of mild swelling, blistering, infection and scarring after this treatment.
