Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL) uses a spectrum of light shined onto the skin to treat a variety of skin and vein issues. Because the light is concentrated and focused, IPL treatment does not damage surrounding tissue. IPL is used for photo rejuvenation where longer wavelengths of light are applied to the skin in order to destroy old collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen, leading to firmer and softer skin. IPL is also used to treat scars and acne, pigmentation, freckles and non-cancerous skin lesions. Clinical results for the use of IPL vary with skin type. Individuals with fair to light brown skin experience the best results from IPL. Individuals who tan easily have varied results, and IPL is not recommended for some individuals with dark skin. Talk to your doctor about whether IPL would be right for you.
Venus Viva is an all-in-one treatment delivering impressive efficacy through NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and one-of-a-kind SmartScan technology. Venus Viva creates micro-wounds in the inner layer of the skin for collagen stimulation and new skin to form. Acne scars will be lighter with lesser depression because when the new skin forms, it fills in the “holes”. As it uses Radio Frequency and not Laser, it is suitable for darker skins.
