Laser treatments have become an increasingly popular option for non-surgical skin rejuvenation. At CPRS, we use bot the 1540 laser and the IPL laser to remove any unwanted hyperpigmentation such as sun damage and age spots, facial veins, flushing, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, reduce unwanted hair growth, improve acne scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and more.
The most effective treatment for anti-aging is the stimulation of your body’s natural collagen production. The 1540 laser, which is a fractional resurfacing device, promotes the development of collagen on a cellular level. It works by creating controlled thermal energy, which promotes collagen growth. This will provide the most optimal cosmetic benefits for skin resurfacing and textural irregularities.
The IPL laser helps to improve skin tone as well as reduce hair growth. It uses light refraction to target areas of hyperpigmentation, including age spots, sun spots, sun damage, melasma, and unwanted hair growth. It can also address facial flushing and facial vessels resulting from rosacea. This will provide a more even skin tone.
When using the IPL laser for hair reduction, smaller surface areas like the upper lip, chin, areola, face, neck, and underarms are the most ideal areas to treat. Because it is an IPL laser, caution has to be used when treating those with darker skin types, and it is important to avoid sun exposure for one week prior to treatment and one week afterward. Six treatments are always needed because there are six cycles of hair growth, and each treatment is spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Once all of the treatments are complete, the resulting hair reduction is permanent!
