The sun is a welcome sight in Portland, but too much exposure to direct sunlight can cause premature aging, wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity, and brown age spots on the skin. Tanning booth overuse can also cause these problems. Sun damage is also attributed to several types of cancer.
If you are looking for help with sun-damaged skin in Portland, Aesthetic Medicine offers help through intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. With the help of our skilled team, you can rejuvenate and restore both the appearance and health of your sun-damaged skin, with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
IPL Therapy uses a special handheld tool to target light energy into your skin. It penetrates the epidermis and reaches the dermis, where pigment cells absorb the energy and convert it into heat. This process causes the unwanted pigmentation to clear, rejuvenating your skin.
IPL Therapy evens out the color and tone of sun-damaged skin. It also improves the skin’s texture, leaving your skin radiant and youthful. Biopsies of patients have shown reversal of inflammation, pigmentation, broken capillaries, and scarring after IPL therapy. All of these benefits are available without downtime, making IPL therapy a popular choice to reverse the signs of sun damage.
Dr. Darm and the team at Aesthetic Medicine use the latest IPL technology, such as Syneron SRA, to target sun-damaged areas on the face, neck, and chest. These treatments cause minimal discomfort and quickly restore the look of the skin. Each treatment session takes about 30 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward. Most patients need a series of treatments for full results, but the differences are often quite dramatic.
If your skin is suffering from sun damage, IPL therapy provides a proven solution to reverse the damage and restore the look of your skin. Schedule a consultation to discuss IPL in Portland with the team at Aesthetic Medicine, and see if you are a candidate for this simple, fast, and effective treatment for sun-damaged skin.
