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.
Microneedling for Skin Resurfacing
Microneedling is a state of the art treatment that uses ultra-fine needles that create microscopic pricks in the skin. This activates the skin’s natural healing and rebuilding processes – stimulating the skin to produce more collagen, in an effort to heal the tiny wounds created by the needles. At ESP Medical we use the revolutionary cordless dermal micro-needling device Eclipse MicroPen® – which offers several advantages over previous generations of anti-aging devices.
As the new collagen is naturally formed it begins to fill in and smooth out any imperfections in the skin – including fine lines, wrinkles, and even scars.
PRP Microneedling Skin Resurfacing
The effects of microneedling are further enhanced by combining the treatments with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma).
Platelets contain the body’s natural healing factors. We extract the PRP from the patient’s own blood and concentrate it using a centrifuge. We then apply the PRP during the microneedling process – where it penetrates deep into the dermis and stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities and collagen production.
PRP has been used in sports medicine for over a decade to naturally regenerate injured joints. It is also gaining popularity as a highly effective, non-surgical method of regrowing hair. When used on the face for skin resurfacing it is sometimes referred to as a “vampire facial” because of the tiny dots of blood that appear on the skin. And while the appearance can be slightly alarming, the process is natural, safe, and comfortable.
Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, such as certain laser therapies, microneedling is safe for all skin types – including darker skin tones and thin and sensitive skin as well. This is because microneedling doesn’t damage or “ablate” (remove) the outer layer of skin.
