How is a #IPL / photo #rejuvenation procedure performed?

Photo rejuvenation uses a unique technique known as pulsed light therapy to treat skin blemishes. Essentially, this technology shines bright, intense light on various parts of the skin. You will wear an eye mask to protect your eyes from the light, and your doctor will use a piece of equipment called an IPL device, which includes an apparatus with a glass or laser surface. This apparatus is pressed to the problematic areas of the body, emitting a light that heats up collagen beneath the skin, encouraging the body to produce more of this beneficial protein. Enhanced collagen production can fill in fine lines or wrinkles on the face as well as some shallow acne scars. IPL technology also reduces flushing and discoloration on the skin.(repair IPL device)

Your plastic surgeon may also recommend complementary treatments to help you achieve your goal. Sometimes the use of laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel in conjunction with photorejuvenation will provide the best result.

IPL emits a broad range of light waves and can diffuse redness, capillaries, brown spots, discoloration and remove hair.

What does IPL or photorejuvenation feel like?

Photorejuvenation may cause mild discomfort. Many patients liken the feeling to a rubber band being snapped against the skin.

What are my options?

In addition to traditional photorejuvenation, some patients may opt for what is known as ELOS (electro-optical synergy), which combines basic IPL technology with high intensity radiofrequency.

Selecting a Surgeon

Select a surgeon you can trust

It's important to choose your surgeon based on:

  • Education, training, and certification
  • Experience with photorejuvenation
  • Your comfort level with him or her

After finding a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area who is experienced in performing photorejuvenation, you will need to make an office appointment to set up your consultation. Generally, because of the in-depth nature of the consultation, there is a cost associated with the initial visit.

Your initial consultation appointment

During your initial consultation, your plastic surgeon will examine your skin and discuss what issues may be improved by photorejuvenation. Your doctor will also design a treatment plan specifically for your skin issues, which will include an estimated number of treatments to achieve maximum results. Understanding your goals and medical condition, both alternative and additional treatments may be considered (see related procedures.)

You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your complete medical history. This will include information about:

  • Previous surgeries
  • Past and present medical conditions
  • Allergies and current medications

Your treatment plan

Based on your goals, physical characteristics, and the surgeon's training and experience, your surgeon will share recommendations and information with you, including:

  • An approach to your treatment, including the type of procedure or combination of procedures
  • The outcomes that you can anticipate
  • Your financial investment in the procedure
  • Associated risks and complications
  • Options for anesthesia and treatment location
  • What you need to prepare for your treatment
  • What you can expect to experience after treatment
  • Before-and-after photos of cases similar to yours and answer any questions
