Laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are non invasive and may produce lasting improvement for these problems leading to a refreshed appearance. Photorejuvenation also effectively treats Rosacea, cherry red spots (angiomas) and freckles (lentigines). Associated benefits with this treatment include a decrease in pore size, improved texture and tightening through collagen stimulation. Used in combination with Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peels will provide enhanced removal of blemishes and imperfections.
Both Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can effectively be used for Photorejuvenation. The cynosure Elite has two laser wave lengths one specific for redness & vessels (Nd:YAG 1064) and the other for brown pigment (Alexandrite 755) which can be used either separately or in combination for the most effective treatment.
