IPL Laser Encinitas
IPL Photo Skin Rejuvenation, or what we call Light Energy, is one of the most advanced treatments for a red complexion, freckles, age and sun spots, fine wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, large pores, and rosacea.
Rosacea is a chronic disease that affects millions of men and women. Topical and oral antibiotics are effective, although they can leave patients with erythema and flushing. Studies have shown that intense pulsed light (IPL) is an effective treatment for the signs and symptoms of rosacea and represents a new category of therapeutic options for rosacea patients.
In the past, physicians used dermabrasion and acid chemical peels to remove layers of damaged skin. While successful, these harsher treatments sometimes required bandages and a lengthy recovery period. Today, thanks to the IPL (intense pulsed light) system, the effects of aging and damaged skin can now be treated in a far gentler way.
Using IPL, Dr. Kaestner will gently deliver precise amounts of light energy through your skin’s surface. The light energy treatment stimulates the production of natural collagen, which softens the appearance of aging skin, and decreases fine lines and wrinkles. The redness associated with rosacea can be reduced by 80 to 90 percent.
IPL Treatment: What to expect
After IPL treatment, your skin will have a more even tone, with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade and pore size will shrink. Improvement will steadily increase with each treatment.
Most people experience no side effects and minimal to no downtime. Postoperative discomfort is almost non-existent due to the impeccable skills of Dr. Kaestner and her accomplished staff.
