IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) with the Stellar M22
The Stellar M22™ Photorejuvenation treatment enables Advanced Skin + Body Aesthetics to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin concerns such as:
- age and sun spots
- broken capillaries.
Our unique IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology gently and effectively eliminates spots, discolorations, and unwanted blood vessels.
The IPL allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. We are able to customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results, with maximum safety. 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. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
IPL treatments are not suitable for everyone and may carry some risks. 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, scarring or a change of pigmentation. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
IPL 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 can 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.
After Your Treatment
Immediately following 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. We do advise you to stay out of direct sun for a few weeks following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
