WHAT IS INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) TREATMENT?

Laser treatments or Intense Pulsed Light( IPL) treatment is a non-ablative cosmetic skin treatment that transmits a broad-spectrum, high intensity light pulses to the skin through various wavelength filters based on application and skin type, as a way to treat many skin conditions and to remove unwanted hair. During treatment, the light is absorbed in the targeted area, heats and is damaged by specific light wavelengths, without irritating surrounding tissue. IPL treatment also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores, leaving skin smooth, tight and glowiing for a long lasting, youthful appearance. At Beau Visage Center in Austin, IPL treatments is used for the following procedures:

  • Photorejuvenation
  • Tattoo Removal
  • Varicose Vein Treatment
  • Permanent Hair Reduction

 

PHOTO REJUVENATION

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) using the photorejuvenation process is a non-invasive method of treating skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface. Photorejuvenation provides an overall smoother appearance within four to six brief skin treatments performed once every three weeks. IPL photorejuvenation can safely and effectively treat a wide range of skin imperfections, including…

  • Broken Capillaries
  • Sun Damage
  • Age Spots
  • Fine Lines
  • Rosacea
  • Rough Texture

Photorejuvenation is not only used in facial skin treatments. The skin of the neck, décolleté (upper chest) and hands can all be treated. Photorejuvenation provides long-lasting results with no “down time,” and most patients are extremely satisfied with the appearance of their skin after only one treatment. Because photorejuvenation never breaks the skin or damages tissue, there is little to no time needed for recovery, and most patients can resume regular activities immediately following treatment.

 

LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

Removing a tattoo is a fading process that requires a series of skin treatments spaced at least six weeks apart. The tattoo inks selectively absorb the laser while the surrounding skin tissue remains unaffected. The tattoo is broken into smaller ink particles that are then harmlessly removed by the body in the weeks following treatment. The depth, color, age, type and density of ink will determine how quickly the tattoo can be removed. Professional tattoos usually require five to fifteen treatment sessions before they can be completely removed. Patients may also choose to have tattoos “lightened” so they can be concealed by a new tattoo. In most cases, a minimum of four treatments are needed to lighten an existing tattoo.

 

PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION

This specialized IPL treatment offers a long lasting to permanent, relatively painless solution for removing unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, bikini line or almost any other part of the body. IPL epilation has been performed safely for many years and has successfully resulted in a permanent reduction in the number of re-growing hairs following each treatment. Prior to treatment, a consultation and skin analysis is necessary. During your initial consultation, our aesthetician will ask you about your medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate for laser hair reduction. The number of hair reduction sessions required will depend upon the size of the area being treated, hair texture, color, skin type and hair density. Patients should avoid sun exposure for 4 weeks prior to treatments, and for the same length of time after the skin treatments.

 

FACIAL RECANVASSING TREATMENTS

A beautiful face begins with gorgeous skin. The goal of recanvassing procedures is to repair visible damage to the skin by exfoliating the outer layers to reveal the fresh, radiant skin underneath.
