What Areas Can Be Treated?
Photorejuvenation with the Lumenis One or MedLite C6 system can be used to treat any area of the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
The device delivers a special range of wavelengths of light in customizable pulses through a sapphire tip gently onto your skin. The light is absorbed either superficially by broken capillaries and dark pigment or deeper by larger vessels and collagen. Dilated capillaries coagulate, pigmented lesions darken and then slough off and new collagen fibers are laid down, giving the skin a renewed and more youthful appearance.
How is Photorejuvenation Performed?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth, cold surface of the IPL handpiece is gently touched to your skin and pulses of light are applied.
Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. In general, excellent long term results can usually be achieved with a series of four to six treatments.
