Ultraviolet light from the sun can speed up the production of melanin in the skin, and cause age spots from overactive pigment cells. Uneven skin tone and discoloration can appear on the parts of your body that are the most exposed to sunlight and can stretch small blood vessels on the outer surfaces of the skin, giving the skin a mottled, reddish appearance. To treat the areas of the body that have been overexposed to the sun, Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Therapy to undo visible skin damage, improving the color and skin tone of treated areas.
Our professionals will select a treatment based on patients’ skin type, and level of sun damage to the skin. The IPL treatment uses a handheld device to apply a high-intensity light source area of treatment, while also correcting other skin conditions such as fine lines, scars, acne, spider veins, or birthmarks. After an Intense Pulse Light Treatment, your skin will have a more youthful appearance due to the removal of damaged cells, and evening of skin tone.
