Photorejuvenation (IPL) Treatment for Men

Photorejuvenation, or Intense Pulse Light (IPL), therapy is typically used to lighten and remove age spots, redness, and virtually any blemish on the face, chest, neck, and hands. As men age, they may start to realize cosmetic imperfections of their skin, discoloration, or rough texture due to sun damage and aging effects. Photorejuvenation can take years off your appearance in just a few simple treatments.

Am I a good candidate?

If you have been noticing unsightly marks and blemishes on your skin, you may be an ideal candidate for Photorejuvenation. Other cosmetic defects that can be addressed include redness, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and dilated blood vessels. Almost any man desiring to rejuvenate his appearance can benefit from IPL therapy, but an initial consultation is necessary to determine candidacy.

What happens during Photorejuvenation?

Depending on your appearance concerns and the size of the area to be treated, Photorejuvenation treatment can last from 30 to 90 minutes. During treatment, some patients experience mild discomfort, but it is generally tolerable, and subsequent treatments become less discomforting as skin begins to clear.

Before the IPL hand piece is applied, a cooling gel is placed on the treatment area to protect the healthy surrounding skin. The pulses of light may slightly sting; most patients say it feels like a rubber band snapping on the skin. Once the procedure is finished and the gel is cleared, sunscreen and moisturizer will be applied to protect the newly treated skin.

What is recovery like from Photorejuvenation?

Mild swelling may occur after your treatment. If it is persistent, it may be suggested to apply an ice pack for five to ten days. In cases of age spots or wrinkles, the treatment area may look darker for the first week after treatment. Patients also experience some crusting which may remain for about ten days. These skin imperfections may disappear within a month’s time.

What will my Photorejuvenation results be like?

You will see more evenly toned, smoother skin within a day of your IPL treatment. After each additional treatment, IPL can improve the appearance of flushing, redness, fine lines, and age spots. It is important to protect your skin from the sun to maintain your results from the Photorejuvenation treatments.
