IPL Vascular Lesion Treatment
Intense Pulsed Lignt (IPL) is a safe, effective treatment for vascula lesions such as superficial small vessels or rosacea. After evaluation, you receive treatment, which takes a short (usually less than 20 minutes) time. The light is absorbed by blood in visible vessels, and converted to heat, which causes shrinking of the vessels.Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
After treatment, the skin tone will improve, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment. Typically, several treatments are necessary to ahieve complete clearance of rosacea or vessels.
