Red blemishes from broken blood vessels and brown spots of pigment from sun damage respond to Intense Pulsed Light. The light is changed to heat energy as it reaches to the level of the collagen beneath the skin surface.
During Los Angeles IPL photorejuvenation treatment, the IPL wavelength is optimized so that the energy is absorbed only by the unwanted melanin, raising the temperature to cause shattering of the pigment. Deeper level damaged blood vessels are treated at the same time via the Los Angeles IPL treatment.
Shortly after Los Angeles photo facial treatment, the unwanted pigment cells (or melanin) have been thoroughly fragmented without damage to the surrounding tissue. Vascular lesions are heated, causing coagulation and shrinking of the vessels through the IPL treatment process.
In the weeks after IPL Los Angeles treatment, the shattered melanin particles are eliminated through a process which causes the fragmented pigments and damaged melanocytes to be absorbed by the body. Little or no trace of the initial lesion remains. The treated vessels deeper within the epidermis are reabsorbed by the body in much the same way.
Because the Los Angeles IPL treatment is gentle, there is no interruption of routine activities. By helping to remove the age spots (sun-induced freckles) and broken capillaries, the result is overall younger-looking skin. While each Los Angeles photo facial treatment improves the skin, major improvements are typically accomplished over a series of treatments.
