Orange County Photofacial

Over time, natural skin aging and exposure to sunlight make superficial blood vessels visible and cause the skin to produce areas of irregular pigmentation.

The Prolite II in Orange County is an Intense Pulsed Light ( IPL ) System that delivers a series of gentle light pulses to the skin. This phototherapy in offers a non-invasive solution to hyperpigmented skin or skin with visible vascular lesions, and restores a more youthful appearance. The appearance of aging skin is more than just wrinkles. An uneven texture, tone or color often ages a face more than the presence of a few lines or wrinkles.

IPL Therapy in Orange County is indicated for the following conditions:

  • Superficial vascular lesions
  • Flushing and redness
  • Rosacea
  • Poikiloderma (red neck)
  • Redness following laser skin resurfacing
  • Brown spots ( sun spots, age spots, liver spots)
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Red or brown scars

The Prolite II is not a laser, it uses a series of intense flashes of light to increase collagen formation, break-up pigment in the epidermis, remove superficial blood vessels and improve the overall tone, texture and pore size of the skin.

FAQs

1. How does it work on vascular and pigmented lesions?

The pulsed light emits wavelengths that are absorbed by vascular and pigmented lesions in multiple levels of the skin. When the light is absorbed by the melanin in the brown sots and the hemoglobin in the veins and red spots, the lesions are gently heated and destroyed.

2. What areas can be treated?

The Prolite IIl procedure in Orange County can be performed on the face, neck, decolletage and hands

3. How long does the procedure take?

It depends on the area being treated. In Orange County it typically takes about 30 minutes. Allow an additional 15-20 minutes if topical numbing cream is being applied.

4. Is it painful?

You will experience a slight sensation as the pulses of therapeutic light are passed over your skin. The sensation is mild and well tolerated by many in Orange county. However, topical numbing creams are available for anyone who wishes to use them.

5. What kind of results can I expect?

Visible signs of aging and sun damage will be significantly reduced. There is an overall improvement in the skin’s texture, tone, and color.

6. Are there any side effects?

The vascular and pigmented lesions will be darker in appearance for 5-7 days. These darker areas will gradually slough off with after your photofacial and return to regular skin care; however, microdermabrasion also works well for this purpose.

7. How many treatments will I need?

A series of four treatments of Orange County Photorejuvenation is usually required for optimal results in Orange County. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months to preserve your results.
