Photo Rejuvenation (IPL)
As the baby boomer generation continues to age, the popularity of aesthetic procedures that aim to turn back the clock continues to skyrocket. Brown spots, broken capillaries and other fallout from photo aging are easy targets for laser systems that use broadband light to repair these defects through a process called photo rejuvenation. Additionally, facial wrinkles can now be treated non-ablatively, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light, imperfections such as erythema of rosacea, superficial telangiectasia, dyschromia, age spots and other discolored signs of photo aging can be gently heated and eliminated, replaced by newer, younger looking skin.
ThermiRF (also known as Symphony RF) is the latest development in wrinkle reduction and skin tightening technology. Utilizing radiofrequency energy to target the subdermal, or inner, layer of skin directly, the ThermiRF device can safely heat the treatment area to an optimal temperature for skin tightening unavailable from other radiofrequency devices such as Thermage.
