IPL Photorejuvenation

Using a gentle intense pulsed light (IPL) laser treatment, photorejuvenation corrects age spots, broken capillaries, blotchy pigmentation, and wrinkles for a youthful, refreshed appearance. Photorejuvenation is only used on the damaged areas of your skin, sparing healthy skin.

At Iorio Plastic Surgery & CosMedical Center, we recommend photorejuvenation as an ideal skin care treatment for patients with large pores, hyperpigmentation, sun-damaged skin, and red flushed faces.

What is photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation is an advanced skin treatment that can erase damage on the skin’s surface, resulting in skin that looks younger and healthier. Photo rejuvenation can be helpful for treating skin imperfections such as fine wrinkles, freckles, age spots, noncancerous lesions, and blemishes, as well as unsightly spots on the face, hands, chest, and neck. Photorejuvenation uses both a gel and a laser to deliver comfortable and effective treatment of the skin.

What are the benefits of photorejuvenation?

Photo rejuvenation stimulates the production of new collagen as the damaged tissue absorbs the light energy. As a result, your skin will begin to soften, smoothing wrinkles and lines and decreasing problematic redness.

How does photorejuvenation work?

Photo rejuvenation is a short in-office procedure that often lasts only 20 minutes or less. During photorejuvenation, Dr. Louis Iorio will first apply a gel to your skin. You’ll be given goggles to protect your eyes. A smooth light wand will be applied to your skin that delivers rapid impulses of a bright light. Though you usually will not feel any pain during a photo rejuvenation treatment, you may be offered an anesthetic cream if any discomfort does occur.

You do not need to rest after a photorejuvenation treatment and you can return to your usual activities as soon as you’d like. You may experience some blotchiness that may last from a few hours to a few days, and you should refrain from spending time in the sun a few days before and after the treatment.

Photo rejuvenation usually involves multiple sessions performed about three weeks apart, and results can be long-lasting, often noticeable for at least a year.

What photo rejuvenation methods do you use?

At Iorio Plastic Surgery & CosMedical Center, we use two types of photorejuvenation: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Levulan® Photodynamic Therapy (Levulan PDT).

Give your skin a healthy, even glow with intense pulsed light (IPL), the cutting edge in anti-aging technology. Our specially-trained team utilizes light filters to treat and improve specific signs of aging such as fine wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, red blotchiness (rosacea), and small, unwanted capillaries for maximum long-term results.

Levulan® Photodynamic Therapy (Levulan PDT) is an advanced skin treatment for sun-damaged skin with actinic keratoses (AKs) – rough scaly skin that can turn into skin cancer. Levulan Photodynamic Therapy uses a special light-activated medication that destroys actinic keratosis on the face or scalp. The topical solution is applied to the face first, and then blue light illumination targets and destroys the AK cells.
