At the Anderson Plastic Surgery MedSpa, we use the Venus Versa laser to perform IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments that reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, rosacea, broken capillaries, port wine stains, and spider veins. Also known as a Photofacial, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires minimal downtime and has a low risk of side effects. This laser uses pulse technology and a contact cooling system to promote the ultimate patient comfort during treatment. This laser makes treatment possible on all areas of the body including the face, neck, chest, and hands. During the initial consultation, a licensed medical aesthetician will explain the benefits and how it can help you reach your skincare goals.
We also offer Vampire Facial microneedling with PRFM (platelet-rich fibrin matrix), the next generation of PRP therapy for enhanced results and rapid healing. Increase cellular turnover and stimulate collagen development with this add-on service.
Before the laser treatment begins, a cold gel is applied to the area being treated, and patients are given protective eyewear to wear throughout the procedure. Using the IPL hand piece, the physician pulses light to the skin’s surface. Without damaging the skin, the laser is absorbed by the dilated vessels or pigmentation. The heat from the laser causes damage to the vessel or lesion, so the body begins a natural healing process. After the treatment is complete, patients can immediately return to normal activities. Redness or blotchiness may last for up to 1-2 hours after the procedure.
What to Expect
A physician or trained medical staff member can perform an IPL Photo Rejuvenation laser treatment on patients. The procedure is gentle, safe and non-invasive, which allows for little to no recovery time. A full series of the laser treatment includes 3 to 4 sessions, with each session lasting 20 minutes every 3 weeks. Some patients may experience a slight sting, similar to the snapping of a rubber band, while the skin is being treated. All IPL treatments are customized to each patient’s skin type and condition to provide the best possible, long-lasting results.
