Part I

Does your reflection in the mirror match the way you feel inside?  Does your own reflection seem like someone else, someone 'older' than you?  Perhaps years of sun damage reveal themselves with a red complexion, wrinkles, fine lines, irregular pigmentation and large pores?  

Rapidly advancing technologies enable skin imperfections to be significantly improved, if not all together vanished from your skin.

Advances in treatment options such as Dermabrasion, chemical peels, CO2, Fraxel, and Erbirum Lasers are on the skin rejuvenation menu du jour.  A chemical peel uses an acid solution to burn layers of skin. Lasers give surgeons infinitely more control, making skin resurfacing safer and more predictable. Laser skin resurfacing still exfoliates the protective outer layer of skin.  

Help is here. Let's take a look at IPL or Photo Facial Rejuvenation.  Designed to combat the effects of aging and damaged skin, IPL or Intense Pulsed Light treatments provide a soft, gentle method of skin rejuvenation. Redness of rosacea can be reduced 80-90 percent.  

Preferably administered by a physician and suitably by physician-assisted personnel, the IPL delivers precise amounts of light energy through your skin's surface. It can be used to treat the entire face, the neck, chest, even the hands.

The light energy actually stimulates the production of collagen. As new collagen forms, it softens the look of aging skin, decreases fine wrinkles and lines, and dramatically reduces the redness associated with rosacea.

What results can you expect?  What’s recovery like?

Part II will discuss all that...
