Facial Veins, Broken Capillaries & Redness Scottsdale, AZ
Rosacea, sun damage, and environmental toxins can cause unpleasant facial redness. Redness may be simply due to a hereditary tendency. Whatever the cause, IPL is a great treatment that reduces vascularity disorders.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. Filters of varying wavelengths can be used, optimizing it for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the relevant chromophores and damages them (blood chromophores when treating vascular lesions and melanin chromophores when treating pigmented lesions). The body's natural processes then clear the lesion debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
