Reverse Sun Damage and Photo-aging
The accumulation of exposure to the sun, smoking, general pollution and aging are accompanied by age related distortion of the structural components of the skin. Fibroblasts, which are one of the main types of cells found in the connective tissue of the dermis, are responsible for the renewal of collagen and elastin. The natural production of collagen starts to decrease from the age of 25 and it further declines from the age of 40. It is important to stimulate cell renewal to prevent the skin from aging in order to take anti-aging action. Intense pulsed light emits the flash of pulsed light at a wavelength of 535nm allowing the stimulation of fibroblast cells. This thermal denaturation of collagen induces neo-collagenesis ; the inflammatory response that results from heating the skin creates a cascade of reactions leading to the synthesis of collagen.
Using IPL for skin rejuvenation stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. There is also an improvement in skin elasticity, reduced pore size and a reduction in fine lines. The skin is radiant and toned, the face is reshaped and the skin texture is improved. The results are visible from the first session.
Treatment time: 4 - 5 sessions are necessary at intervals of 2 to 3 weeks between sessions.
