PHOTOREJUVENATION

Lumenis One IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) for Photorejuvenation

 

Dr. Barkey is very excited to be the only facility in the greater Flint Area to offer the Lumenis One®. Lumenis One® is a completely non-invasive device that delivers a special range of visible light in customizable pulses through a cooled sapphire tip gently onto your skin. This light is absorbed either superficially by broken capillaries and dark pigment or deeper by large blood vessels and collagen. Dilated capillaries coagulate, pigmented lesions darken and then slough off and new collagen fibers are laid down, giving the skin a renewed and more youthful appearnace. This process is known as photorejuvenation.

 

The Lumenis One® is able to deliver higher doses through a larger spot size to be able to treat large areas in just minutes with no patient down time. The Lumenis One can be used to treat virtually any area of the body including the face, neck, chest, back, forearms, and hands.

 

How is Photorejuvenation Performed?

A cool gel is applied to the area to be treated and dark goggles are given to protect the eyes from the bright light. The smooth, cold surface of the Lumenis One® IPL handpiece is gently touched to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight stinging like the snapping of a rubber band. Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. In general, excellent long term results can usually be achieved with a series of 4 to 6 treatments. Depending on the number of conditions you are treating and the severity of each, a series of 4 to 6 treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities.
