The signs of photo-aging and sun damage affect both men and women and start to appear on the skin from age thirty onward. Most skin changes are commonly associated with aging resulting from sun exposure. These include changes in skin pigmentation such as freckles, melasma, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles and spider veins.
The signs of sun damage can be treated and reduced with a series of
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. IPL is very effective in reducing
the visible signs of sun damage by stimulating skin renewal, growth of
new collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the skin. This
contributes to slowing down the future process of aging.
IPL uses the principle of neocollagenesis. Neocollagenesis is a process in which new collagen fibres are created under the skin thus replacing the damaged ones and filling the spaces where the fibres were destroyed, mainly due to environmental factors.
IPL treatments enable this process, letting the skin heal by itself while reducing the wrinkles. At the same time, pigmented and vascular lesions are reduces by using a low-energy and broadband light thus the skin imperfections are replaced by newer and younger looking skin. Multiple treatments are required in order to achieve optimum results.
