IPL Photorejuvenation in Wisconsin

MADISON IPL THERAPY

Intense Pulsed Light therapy is used primarily for the improvement of pigmentation and redness in the skin. Photorejuvenation can even out pigment and redness in the skin, treat the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin and improve the overall appearance of skin texture and tone. IPL treatments are available at both AestheticA Skin Health Center locations in Appleton and Middleton, WI.

PHOTOREJUVENATION TREATMENT

Photorejuvenation for Fine Lines and Large Pores

An intense flash of light penetrates deeply enough and with sufficient energy to be absorbed by collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, diminishing wrinkles and enlarged pores through collagen remodeling. These treatments require little or no down time and work wonderfully in conjunction with microdermabrasion to rejuvenate the skin of your face, neck, chest, or hands.

 

To achieve the best results, multiple treatments will be recommended. The number of treatments recommended will be determined during your consultation. AestheticA Skin Health Center offers package pricing for select treatment areas, available in a series of 3, 4 or 6 treatments. Please inquire within for more details.

Photorejuvenation For Removing Unwanted Pigment

Many of us have brown “age” or “sun” spots that have developed on our skin as a result of past sun exposure. A series of IPL treatments successfully reduces these brown “age” or “sun” spots and freckles. Computerized, intense pulses of light delivered deep into the skin improve clarity and tone of the skin, repairing sun damage and vaporizing unwanted pigment. This treatment may be performed anywhere on the body that you have unwanted brown spots or freckling.

 

IPL Photorejuvenation treatments for pigment removal are scheduled at 4week intervals. A series of treatments is necessary to reach optimal results. One of our Medical Aesthetics Specialists will provide you with their recommendations for the quantity of treatments to be received during your consultation. AestheticA Skin Health Center offers package pricing for select treatment areas, available in a series of 3, 4 or 6 treatments. Please inquire within for more details.

Photorejuvenation For Eliminating Unwanted Redness or Flushing

Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation eliminates congested blood vessels that cause unwanted redness or flushing in environmentally-damaged areas of the skin, such as the cheeks and upper chest. Red flushing, which occurs as a symptom of Rosacea is also treated with this device.

YOUR CONSULTATION

Your skin requires a tailored program of care to optimize its health and appearance. At your consultation, one of our Medical Aesthetics Specialists will gather information from you about your skin concerns, examine your skin and explain what they discover. They will help you prioritize and achieve your best skin by preparing a treatment plan that ensures any skin treatments you choose are provided in a manner that is as effective and as safe as possible. Our Medical Aesthetics Specialists have trained under Double-Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Richard Parfitt. Their extensive knowledge of non-surgical procedures, skin care and skin rejuvenation treatments ensures they are skilled specialists in your chosen treatment. Consultations can take place at either of our locations in Appleton, WI or Middleton, WI.

If you are a new client of AestheticA Skin Health Center and are interested in a specific treatment, time may be allotted for the consultation and treatment to be completed in one appointment. If you are a previous client of AestheticA, but have not been seen by our clinic within a year, a brief follow-up will be included in your appointment to discuss your previous treatment(s) or any new skin concerns you may have.

PHOTOREJUVENATION FAQs:

What can I expect with an IPL treatment?

After treatment, the treated area will be warm to the touch and may be swollen and red, much like a mild sunburn.

How long is the in-office treatment?

The treatment may take 15 minutes to one hour. This will vary depending on the size of the treatment area and number of pulses of the IPL used during the treatment.

Do I need only one treatment?

IPL Photorejuvenation is not a one-time treatment. Multiple sessions will be required to obtain ideal results. The number of treatments recommended will be determined during your consultation.

Can I combine other treatments or skin care products with IPL?

Topical skin care is highly recommended to enhance your treatment results and to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin; however, precautions must be taken to minimize sensitivity to the light and heat produced in these treatments. One of our Medical Aesthetics Specialists will discuss the use of products throughout the course of these treatments.

Is the IPL photorejuvenation treatment permanent?

Photorejuvenation has a lasting effect on the client, but does not prevent the skin from aging. Additional treatments may be performed on an as-needed basis. The use of topical skin care is highly recommended to enhance and maintain treatment results.

TREATMENT GUIDELINES

PRE TREATMENT
  • Discontinue sun tanning and the use of tanning beds and self-tanning creams 4 weeks before and through the treatment course. Daily, routine sun exposure should be minimal to none 2 weeks before any treatment. This will reduce the chance of skin color changes, and development of new lesions.
  • A broad spectrum (UVA/UVB), sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater should be applied to the area being treated daily and whenever exposed to the sun and throughout your course of treatment. Avoid all sun exposure between treatments. Wear protective, light-occluding hats and clothing.
  • Discontinue use of exfoliating creams such as Retin-A and other skin exfoliating products 2 weeks prior to and during the entire treatment course.
  • Be sure to finish any antibiotics 2 weeks before treatment, as antibiotics cause the skin to be photosensitive
  • If you have a history of herpes outbreaks in the area of treatment you should consult with a physician for medical evaluation and possible prophylaxis prior to treatment.
  • Be aware there is the possibility of coincidental hair loss when treating pigmented lesions in hair bearing areas.
  • Topical anesthetics are not recommended for treatment of vascular lesions because of potential vasoconstriction that renders treatment less effective.
POST TREATMENT (Pigmented Lesions)

Post Treatment Instructions for Pigmented Lesions:

  • Mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours or longer. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, which usually resolves in 2-3 days. In some cases, prolonged redness or blistering may occur.
  • The lesion may initially look raised and/or darker with a reddened perimeter. Apply cold gel packs or cool wet cloths to the treatment areas for 15 minutes every 2-4 hours to reduce discomfort and heat sensation.
  • The lesion will gradually turn darker over the next 24-48 hours. It may turn dark brown or black.
  • The lesion will progress to scabs/crusting and will start flaking off in 2-3 days.
  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs. This will prevent unwanted side effects.
  • The lesion is usually healed in 7-30 days. It will continue to fade over the next 2-4 weeks.
  • Direct sunlight to the treated area should be avoided.
  • Daily application of SPF 30 is recommended to prevent development of new lesions.

Please call office with questions and concerns regarding these instructions at 608.831.4007.

POST TREATMENT (Vascular Lesions)

Post-treatment Instructions for Vascular Lesions:

  • Mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours or longer. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, which usually resolves in 2-3 days. In some cases, prolonged redness or blistering may occur.
  • Apply cold gel packs or cool wet cloths to the treatment areas for 15 minutes every 2-4 hours to reduce discomfort and heat sensation.
  • The treated area can be gently cleansed and topical bactericidal ointment can be applied if needed.
  • The vessels undergo immediate graying or blanching. In some cases, only a slight purplish change is noted. Vessels either fully or partially resolve in about 10-14 days; areas of diffuse flushing gradually fade leaving skin with normal appearance.
  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs. This will prevent unwanted side effects.
  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas, as well as the use of tanning beds and self-tanning creams. Avoid SPF-30 sunscreen daily to sun-exposed skin.
  • Avoid swimming, hot tubs/Jacuzzis, excessive exercise, and cosmetics until redness resolves.
