IPL PhotoFacial Atlanta

Syneron elōs™ e-light photo-rejuvenation is a new type of photo-rejuvenation treatment which takes non-surgical skin resurfacing to the next level by combining the traditional Intense Pulsed Light -IPL photorejuvenation technology with radiofrequency skin tightening technology.

Like the traditional photo-rejuvenation, the elōs™ eLight™ photofacial is a non-invasive treatment which means the IPL and RF energies are applied to the skin for maximum effect on pigmentation, redness, facial veins, fine lines, and pore size.

The elōs™ e-light device delivers two types of energy to your skin, Intense Pulsed Light and RadioFrequency energy that act synergistically to enhance the skin. Energy is absorbed in pigmentation, blood vessels, and redness to gradually and gently reduce or eliminate these blemishes. The RadioFrequency energy also produces collagen and elastin in the dermis, resulting in a noticeable smoothing of fine to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities.
Individuals who have sun damaged skin or rosacea, irregularly pigmented skin, enlarged pores, veins or other skin conditions that could be expected to be improved with this treatment. Patients with lighter, untanned skin are the best candidates for elōs™ e-light IPL. Patients with tanned or naturally dark skin can experience changes in skin pigmentation so are not typically recommended. Additionally, patients who are pregnant or taking the medication Accutane® should not have elōs™ e-light IPL until at least six months after they stop using the drug or after pregnancy. People with active cold sores should also delay treatment. If you are taking aspirin or blood thinners, you may experience some bruising.
The area is covered with a thin layer of cooling gel, the area is treated with a gentle pulse of elos™ Laser light and Radio Frequency combined energy. When the pulse of elos™ light and low energy radio frequency is administered there is a momentary warm sensation that is easily tolerated. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
Immediately following the e-light treatment, your face will appear slightly red or flushed, pigmented lesions may appear darker and your skin may feel as though it has a sun burn. These are normal symptoms and will improve over the next 24 hours. Peeling may occur especially if there are a lot of brown spots or sun freckles on your face. Typically, these spots become darker within the first 24 hours following treatment and look almost like “pepper flakes” on your skin, these lesions will flake off over the next two weeks.
Most patients require 3 – 6 elos™ PhotFacial treatments depending on desired results. Treatments are performed every two to four weeks. Some patients may benefit from additional treatments. Once completed, patients are advised to refrain from sun/UV exposure and wear a SPF 30+ sunscreen daily to prevent further skin damage.
