Intense Pulse Light
Intense Pulse light is commonly termed IPL- It is also referred to as Photo Rejuvenation. The Cynosure Max-G IPL is used to reduce the appearance of red and brown discoloration of the skin. This treatment is very effective in treating sun damage, freckles, age spots, facial vessels, rosacea, and angiomas. IPL treatments are performed on the face, neck chest, hands, or other areas of the body that need improvement. Intense pulse light treatment give a beautiful, healthy glow to the skin.
The Cynosure ICON 1540 Fractionated Non-Ablative Laser is used to resurface the skin without the risks and downtime of traditional methods. The fractionated laser resurfaces the skin through an array of precise microbeams. The microbeams heat the outer and mid-levels of the skin in microscopic columns which trigger the body’s natural production of new collagen, connective tissues, and cells. Because there is no ablation or actual removal of skin, there are no open wounds and much less recovery time compared to traditional laser resurfacing.
The Fractionated Non-Ablative Laser improves wrinkles around the eyes and upper lip lines. The ICON 1540 can improve generalized fine wrinkles, pore size, and size tone. Because this treatment penetrates deep into the skin, it also is FDA approved to treat melasma, acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. Patients of all skin types can benefit from this treatment. We commonly treat the face and neck areas, as well as the delicate skin on the chest.
