Intense pulsed light therapy, IPL, is an effective skin rejuvenation technique that employs the use of pulsed light. The light energy stimulates collagen production and the creation of new skin cells. The Elite MPX is an advanced device that helps to target skin imperfections and easily remove or diminish them.
The treatment can be tailored to your needs as the Elite MPX delivers multiple wavelengths of light. For example, many of the superficial skin problems such as fine wrinkles and surface level injury scars will benefit. Those requiring treatment for the reduction in visual discolorations such as deeper acne scars, rosacea, and age spots can also benefit from the use of the Elite MPX. We encourage all those who have concerns about their facial skin to consult with us to learn more about IPL photorejuvenation and the newly developed Elite MPX.
How IPL Photorejuvenation Works
Intense pulsed light is light energy that is produced in various wavelengths. IPL light energy works to diminish unwanted dark spots, lines and wrinkles, and veins. The energy will only be absorbed in the lower levels of your skin, so it will not affect surrounding tissues or muscles. As the energy is absorbed, the production of collagen is stimulated and begins to repair skin imperfections. The creation of new skin cells is also accelerated to replace old and damaged cells.
IPL photorejuvenation treatments are relatively comfortable and do not require an anesthetic. After treatment, you may feel some tenderness much like a sunburn, but this will dissipate with time. A typical treatment session takes about 15-20 minutes and can be done in the comfort of our office in Huntington. Depending on your condition, you may need several treatments to achieve your most desirable results.
Advantages of IPL Photorejuvenation Treatments
This kind of skin photorejuvenation therapy doesn’t involve surgery or skin repositioning. It is suitable for all skin tones because no chemicals are used. There is absolutely no recovery time required and after treatment you can resume your normal activities.
The Elite MPX can be calibrated for every skin tone, thickness, and texture. This gives our dermatologist far more control over the results than when other skin treatments such as chemical peels are performed.
