iplWhat makes Photorejuvenation ONE with Lumenis One special?

Lumenis One is a true fourth generation Intense Pulsed Light system with patented state of the art technology which optimizes power, pulsing and light delivery to provide maximum results, comfort and safety. Lumenis invented IPL and continues to perfect it. With more clinical papers and more physicians using Lumenis IPL systems, Lumenis IPL is the Gold Standard and Lumenis One is the flagship system.

Advanced technology can be expensive. While other practices may promote similar treatments with cheaper, lower-powered technology, there is a visible difference in results. Our practice believes in providing only the very best treatment for our patients and has made the investment in the Lumenis One.

Lumenis One delivers a special range of wavelengths of light in customized pulses through a sapphire tip gently onto your skin. The light is absorbed either superficially by the broken capillaries and dark pigment or deeper by larger 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 appearance.

What areas can be treated?

Photorejuvenation ONE with the Lumenis One system can be used to treat any area of the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.

A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses or goggles to protect your 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. An anesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required. Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. In general, excellent long term results can usually be achieved with a series of four to six treatments.

Why are multiple treatments necessary?

Depending on the number of conditions you are treating and the severity of each, a series of four to six treatments may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk, preserving the convenience of a “no downtime” procedure.
