How IPL Skin Resurfacing Works
IPL skin resurfacing uses high-intensity pulses of specific light frequencies to to repair damaged skin cells. This “photo rejuvenation” technique stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, resulting in younger, “plumper”, healthier looking skin. A handheld device is used to send energy deep into the skin, where it is selectively absorbed by certain cells.
The Cynosure ICON 1540 is a “Fractional Laser” that splits up light energy into hundreds of precise micro-beams that penetrate the skin’s lower layers to stimulate the body’s natural healing response – causing new, healthy tissue to form. This results in smoother, younger-looking skin with improved texture and tone.
Icon 1540 Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) facial sessions typically only take 30 minutes or less, and require no downtime. Typically only three to four treatments spaced approximately a month apart are needed to offer optimal skin resurfacing results.
There is also minimal to no discomfort with Icon 1540 IPL laser skin resurfacing. Any minor redness, swelling, or irritation that appears can be reduced by applying cold packs to the area (do not apply ice directly to the skin) and should resolve in a matter of just a few hours.
