Experience the Power of Light: IPL Photorejuvenation
Cost: Estimate Provided at Consultation
It’s easy to love the sun: every day, we enjoy its warmth and bask in its light. Yet even as we thrive in the sun’s warm, inviting glow, daily exposure to its powerful ultraviolent (UV) energy is causing serious damage to our skin from the inside out. In fact, 80-90% of the visible signs of aging are a direct result of exposure to the sun’s UV rays! Also known as “photoaging”, the cumulative effects of unprotected exposure to the sun augment the natural loss of collagen and elastic (critical proteins in the skin that keep it looking supple, smooth, and healthy), and cause our skin to look—and feel—worn out, tired, and “old”.
Symptoms of photoaging include:
- Irregular pigmentation on the face, chest, shoulders, hands, and arms
- Sun spots, liver spots, and age spots
- Melasma (spots of darkened skin)
- Uneven skin tone
- Broken or dilated capillaries, rosacea, or spider veins
- Rough skin texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores

Your IPL Rejuvenation Experience
A standard IPL rejuvenation treatment can be completed in the comfort of our private practice in Las Vegas, Nevada, and usually requires about 30 minutes. To start the treatment, you will be asked to wear protective eyewear and a cooling gel will be applied to the designated treatment areas. The IPL treatment involves a precisely-calibrated, non-ablative (non-damaging) laser that directs intense pulses of multi-wavelength light deep into the dermis, or the innermost layer of skin. The dermis absorbs the light energy as heat and begins to remodel aging collagen strands and even begin producing new collagen, thus evening out the skin’s tone and improving its texture. Most patients will require three to six IPL sessions, spaced approximately three weeks apart, for optimal rejuvenation.
IPL is completely non-invasive, and because the light energy does not damage the skin in any way, side effects are temporary and mild in nature; some patients experience temporary facial redness for about an hour after treatment. Patients can continue all normal activities immediately. Most patients see some improvement in their skin’s tone and texture immediately after the first treatment; however, the stunning, dramatic results will become increasingly visible over the next several weeks as your skin begins to produce new collagen. Once your series of treatments is complete, you may be able to enjoy your amazing rejuvenation for a year or even longer!
