Let your skin see and feel the light with IPL

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. The intense pulsed energy penetrates and transforms your skin, directly affecting loose collagen structures, refining skin texture, and stimulating your body to shed dead or unhealthy skin cells and replace them with a healthy new layer of skin. IPL probes deep into the dermis, stimulating tissue healing and regeneration. An IPL treatment will give you luminous skin from within. With intense pulsed light, skin rejuvenation is a cinch.

This powerful technology is the preferred fast, non-surgical treatment to achieve facial rejuvenation and one of the best non-invasive solutions to a horde of cosmetic problems such as acne, acne scars, hirsutism, melasma, freckles, age spots, wrinkles caused by sun damage, spider veins, varicose veins, rosacea, and psoriasis. With IPL you don’t have to be emotionally marred by skin blemishes and the unsightly scars.

The Asava difference is that our approach is holistic. We offer both nutritional counseling and high-potency natural supplements to help you regenerate and heal from within by way of systemic detoxification and correction of nutritional deficiencies. Dr. Jay Amin, aside from being an expert in cosmetic procedures, is a doctor of integrative medicine and understands the non-contradicting compatibility of what is positive in modern western medicine with ancient eastern healing modalities such as Ayurveda. At Asava Medispa we not only effectively treat your acne problems with laser. We also coach and guide our clients on positive lifestyle habits to help put their acne problem in control, and even prevent it from coming back. Inside-out beauty is our specialty.

How does IPL technology work? How is intense pulsed light different from laser?

Both are actually lasers; the former is the cutting-edge version of the latter. The earlier generation of skin laser technology and IPL have some similarities in that both emit powerful wavelengths of energy and direct heat to the dermis to achieve specific purposes. The difference is that laser technology can emit only one color whereas the IPL machine can emit thousands of colors at the same time. IPL energy emissions are also exponentially more concentrated and highly adjustable, making IPL technology more versatile and flexible compared to laser. Shorter wavelengths are utilized for superficial problems, while longer wavelengths are used to target conditions that occur in the deeper strata of the skin. An IPL treatment is also shorter due to the intensity of wavelengths it can deliver to the affected area. Photofacial via IPL laser is also non-ablative. Unlike microdermabrasion and skin peels it doesn’t damage the outer layer of the skin.

What can the IPL procedure treat?

Intense pulsed light can treat various skin conditions occurring in specific areas of the body such as the face, neck, chest, and upper extremities (arms and hands) such as:

* Melasma, freckles, and dark skin tone. Pulsed light effectively targets melanin, the skin pigment responsible for skin darkening and spotting.

* Acne, including other comedones such as white heads and black heads. Acne can disappear in as little as one month through the destruction of the acne bacteria and IPL’s anti-inflammatory benefits. Intense pulsed light technology can also shrink large pores, refining your overall skin texture.

* Acne scars and other kinds of elevated, depressed, and discolored scars. Specific heat and wavelength break down scar tissue and promote new tissue growth, making scars blend into the skin’s natural tone.

* Chronic or recurring skin disorders such as rosacea and psoriasis. Selective heat and wavelength shuts down the capillaries responsible for the redness and flushing that occur in rosacea. A similar action takes place in the treatment of psoriasis, where pulsed light shrinks and destroys blood vessels that serve as feeding tubes of psoriatic cells.

* Sagging jowls, droopy eyebrow area, heavy eye bags, double chin, and lax neck tissue. IPL treatment is great for skin tightening because it triggers the creation of new collagen, giving you a natural-looking, non-surgical face lift.

* Skin spots such as age spots or liver spots.

* Spider veins, varicose veins, and large blood vessels in the face. It’s a pain-free and completely non-invasive alternative to Asclera in treating vascular lesions. IPL laser can treat veins in the face, arms, and hands, which Asclera cannot.

* Sun damaged skin (skin discoloration and wrinkles).

* Tattoos.

* Port wine stains and flat birthmarks.

* “Chicken skin,” ingrown hair, and excessive body and facial hair.

* Pigmented Birthmarks

* Sun Damage Induced Dyspigmentation

I have a number of conditions that can benefit from an IPL photofacial. Does this make me an automatic candidate for the treatment?

There are certain medical conditions that can disqualify people that are otherwise eligible for IPL treatments. Type 1 diabetics and people prone to keloids or burning are not encouraged to go for an IPL procedure. Our staff will assess your medical history and closely examine your skin to determine whether this treatment will suit you or not.

What are the side effects and risks I should be aware of?

Intense pulsed light is very safe, although temporary redness and change of color (increased or decreased pigmentation) in treated areas may occur after the treatment in certain individuals. Bleeding, swelling, bruising, and blistering are possible side effects, but are very rare.

Do I need a special preparation prior to the treatment?

Blood-thinning drugs and supplements including certain herbs and spices should be discontinued or avoided days before the treatment. Our staff will tell you specifically which supplements, medications, and foods to avoid to minimize IPL side effects and risks.

What is the treatment like?

A rectangular shaped wand bombards the target site with intense flashes of light with customized wavelengths of energy. The IPL photofacial may hurt just a bit in some patients and, depending on their degree of tolerance, a numbing cream may be applied to the problem area if requested or needed.

Although there may be some discomfort felt during the treatment, the IPL laser procedure is very gentle. This is why it does not call for any recovery time. You can go for a treatment during your lunch break for less than 30 minutes and come back to work without anyone knowing you had a photofacial. You must, however, avoid sun exposure for a number of days after each treatment.

How soon can I see results?

Depending on the problem being treated and other factors, you would need to go for 4-8 treatments before you notice dramatic changes. Each treatment is spaced for around 3 weeks apart. Ask your physician about the ideal frequency of treatments for your condition.
