Photorejuvenation (often called a Photofacial) uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to target pigment and vessels. Pulses of light make all the difference because they target pigment and vessels in your skin without harming surrounding tissue. This light technology penetrates deep into the dermis, causing sun damaged areas to fade, decreasing the redness caused by rosacea, eliminating dilated blood vessels on the cheeks, nose, and chin, and reducing pore size. Depending on the condition and the designated area, a series of treatments may be required. The result? Your skin can look and feel better than ever.
