How Does Photorejuvenation Work?
Dr. Ghatan and her associaties deliver a special range of wavelengths of light in customizable pulses through a sapphire tip gently onto your skin. The light is absorbed either superficially by broken capillaries and dark pigment or deeper by larger vessels and collagen. Dilated capillaries coagulate, pigmented lesions darken and then slough off and new collagen fibers are laid down, giving the skin a renewed and more youthful appearance.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Dr. Ghatan and her associates can perform Photorejuvenation any area of body. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
How is Photorejuvenation Performed?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. Dr. Ghatan and her associates will touch the IPL handpiece to your skin, applying pulses of light. You may feel a slight stinging like the snapping of a rubber band. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required. Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. In general, excellent long term results can usually be achieved with a series of four to six treatments.
Why are Multiple Treatments Required?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating and the severity of each, a series of four to six treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk, preserving the convenience of a “no downtime” procedure.
