What is IPL?
StarLux™ Pulsed Light Therapy offers an “intense pulsed light” (IPL) that delivers energy to target and destroy vascular and pigmented lesions. Some of these lesions and conditions include facial, neck, and chest telangiectasias or “broken capillaries” (such as those seen with Rosacea), tan or brown “sun spots” and sun damage on the face, neck, chest, arms, legs and “cherry angiomas” of the face and body. It is also used in combination with non-ablative fractional treatments to help reduce the dark pigmentation seen with Melasma.
IPL is a non-abrasive and non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin that can significantly improve the signs of sun damage, along with the overall appearance of not only your face but also help rejuvenate your hands and body.
What does IPL Treat?
What are Sun Spots?
They are flat brown spots that show up on the parts of your skin that have been exposed to the sun.
Once you start getting sunspots, expect them to darken and increase in quantity every time you step out into the sun. Even when the sun rays are coming from your house windows or car windows, it still counts. This happens when there is a focal increase of skin pigment called melanin from the Sun’s UV Exposure.
fractional skin rejuvenation
Improve and minimize Unwanted Scars, Spots, Lines, and More.
The StarLux Non-Ablative Fractional device generates small beams of light on to selected areas of the skin. These microbeams penetrate the lower layers of the skin and stimulate the synthesis of newer collagen. In addition, the heat energy also stimulates the growth of more elastic fibers. The end result is filling up of the wrinkles with the newer collagen molecules and a skin which is tighter and smoother looking. The most common skin disorders treated with non-ablative fractional include revision of acne scars, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing stretch marks, and decreasing the intensity of melasma (paired with IPL).
