What is Photorejuvenation?

This term, which literally means rejuvenating the skin with light, is usually applied to procedures employing intense pulsed light (IPL) and related technologies.

Unlike lasers that utilize monochromatic light, IPL employs light of various wavelengths to improve the appearance of photo-aged skin and reduce the visibility of most benign brown pigments and redness caused by capillaries.

What benefits can photorejuvenation with intense pulsed light provide?

Because photorejuvenation utilizes light encompassing a broad spectrum of wavelengths there are many potential benefits and multiple skin conditions can be treated. Pigmented lesions such as freckles, age spots, melasma and blotchy pigmentation, along with vascular lesions, including rosacea, are commonly treated. Photorejuvenation also reduces fine lines and wrinkles as it gently stimulates collagen production. IPL has also been utilized to reduce the embarrassment of flushing and it can help diminish the appearance of some scars. Scion’s game-changing SkinTyte technology can tighten and firm skin almost anywhere on the body with virtually no downtime. Some new applications for SkinTyte include treating the joint pain associated with arthritis and enhancement of sexual function for both men and women.

What areas can be treated with IPL?

Photorejuvenation can be used to treat the face, neck, chest, arms and hands – almost anywhere that sun damage is seen. Photorejuvenation of the face is often referred to as a “photo facial.” Recently IPL technology has been used to treat joint pain from arthritis, help manage acne and also to enhance sexual function.

Is there down time with photorejuvenation?

Intense pulsed light treatments are non-invasive with minimal discomfort. Patients are able to return immediately to their routine activities.
