How is the IPL Photo rejuvenation different from CO2 or Erbium Laser Resurfacing?
IPL photo rejuvenation is a noninvasive, safe method to improve the look and feel of the skin without undergoing the pain and downtime associated with deep laser resurfacing. Deep laser resurfacing removes the entire epidermis leaving the skin vulnerable to infection and requires 3-4 weeks of patient downtime and post healing. Why should I go to Perfect Skin for my fotofacial treatments? We get the best possible results. Our fotofacial treatments take longer (1-2 hours each) because we do multiple passes with different settings to specifically target the skin conditions you want improved. After your fotofacial treatment we use the VersaPulse C aesthetic laser to go over any resistant redness, spider veins, or pigmented lesions you may have. This combination results in much greater improvement in your skin with each session. We also combine fotofacial with Levulan in a procedure called PhotoDynamic Skin Rejuvenation. This is the ideal treatment for moderate to severely sun-damaged skin.
