Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation is a state-of-the-art technology that uses high-intensity light energy to minimize imperfections on the skin. IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive technique applied over a series of treatments that work to gradually reverse the effects of sun damage, and reduce the appearance of brown spots, pore size, broken capillaries, superficial veins, fine lines and the symptoms of certain skin conditions such as Rosacea.
IPL Photorejuvenation is most commonly used on the face and neck, but is equally effective on the chest and hands. The beauty of this treatment is that the skin is not being removed or penetrated; therefore, no down-time is involved. Patients of all ages and most skin types are eligible. Patients who are tan are asked to delay treatment for four to six weeks. Patients with very dark skin pigmentation are not good candidates for this particular treatment.
A series of sessions allows Dr. Pacheco to obtain superior results in a gradual and natural way. Maintenance treatments are recommended for sustained, excellent results.

What to Expect:
Each treatment takes about thirty minutes. After the treatment is completed, one may experience mild redness, temporary darkening of brown spots or a bluish darkening of broken capillaries- all of which resolve in five to ten days and may be covered up with your regular makeup. There is no downtime and one may immediately resume normal activities. Optimal results are seen after four to six treatments, which are scheduled about three to four weeks apart, until the desired endpoint is achieved. Maintenance treatments are also recommended one to two times a year for longer lasting results. More frequent maintenance treatments are preferred by some patients, and can be safely performed whenever a touch up is desired. In the end, nearly flawless, radiant skin can be achieved in a safe and gentle manner.
