Getting photo rejuvenation/IPL in Tampa is an effective way to combat the signs of aging. This non-invasive treatment helps eliminate the effects of photoaging or sun exposure on your skin.
Photo rejuvenation, or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, uses light energy to address hyperpigmentation on your skin. It targets a specific color in your skin and gets rid of the unwanted cells. That way, it even restores your skin tone and treats you for other conditions at the same time.
There are a lot of skin concerns aside from sun damage that IPL treatments can address. If you are looking to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes like age spots, liver spots, wrinkles, freckles, and acne, this is a great treatment choice.
If, on the other hand, you have skin resurfacing conditions, light sensitivity, heavy scarring or recently tanned skin, you might want to check with your doctor first.

Visiting our skin experts for a consultation before undergoing treatment allows you to set your expectations and discuss the process beforehand. It may be a non-invasive procedure, but there is still information that must be conveyed for your safety and satisfaction.
Normally, topical anesthetics are not administered, because the sensation you will feel during treatment feels like a rubber band snapping on your skin. For people with more sensitive skin, a numbing cream may be used. You will be asked to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes.
The handheld IPL device will be used to deliver more than one wavelength of pulsating light to the targeted areas. When the light gets through the skin layer, it breaks down the cells without too much discomfort. The whole treatment can take from 20 minutes up to an hour. For best results, multiple sessions are recommended.
After your session of photo rejuvenation therapy, it is normal to feel a tight feeling in your skin for 4-6 hours. Cold compress or ice packs can help relieve your pain. While you heal, make sure you protect yourself from the rays of the sun with a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
You can go back to work the day after the treatment session, but if your face still stings, avoid wearing makeup for a few days. Use a mild cleanser meant for sensitive skin to clean your face. It might take a week before you can return to your normal skin care routine.
Photo rejuvenation treatment prices vary from clinic to clinic, depending on the extent and frequency of the treatment. You will need to check with us during your consultation to learn the cost for each session.
