A gentle laser photofacial treatment that removes skin imperfections and stimulates collagen and elastic fiber production. This procedure creates visible improvement for pigmentation, age/sun spots, broken capillaries and overall skin appearance. As a plus it is a fast “lunch-time” treatment with little to no downtime.
Lumenis® energy-based photofacial laser treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Optima™ IPL is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling, change of pigmentation or scarring. Book a consult today to discuss how skin rejuvenation can work for you.
The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) photofacial laser technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. Lumenis® IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables your provider to safely customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
Immediately following your laser photofacial treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day. Typically your provider should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL photofacial laser treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/ sun spots may be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments. Typically 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns.
