IPL + Microdermabrasion = Spectacular Skin Rejuvenation Results

A new era in skin rejuvenation has arrived IPL + Microdermabrasion
with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation in combination with Microdermabrasion.

A program of these non-invasive treatments can make a dramatic difference and may eliminate the need to go near the surgeon’s knife as the treatment modalities combine to lead to a smooth, even toned, firmer and younger looking skin.

  • IPL Photorejuvenation works deep in the skin to combat uneven skin color and eliminate broken capillaries, while stimulating new collagen formation.
  • Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and allows better penetration of the IPL light source – at the same time improving skin texture and smoothing any surface skin irregularities such as acne scarring.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

While each treatment can offer many benefits alone in skin rejuvenation, combining these two anti-aging treatments can give spectacular results. 

  • Eliminates broken blood vessels or spider veins
  • Evens skin tone  and smoothes skin texture
  • Fades brown age spots and freckles
  • Softens and reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treats Rosacea (roh-ZAY-sha) or red-faced, acne-like skin
  • Virtually painless
  • No down-time
  • Walk-in walk-out lunchtime procedure

Skin Rejuvenation Program

The number of IPL and Microdermabrasion treatments will vary according to individual needs and goals.  Boston based SkinHealth Centers generally prescribes a non-surgical facial rejuvenation program of minimally 3 IPL treatments and 2 Microderm treatments.  The treatments, beginning with a Microderm, are performed in two-week intervals.

IPL plus Microdermabrasion

Equally important to the success of the IPL + Microdermabrasion skin rejuvenation program is your home skincare regimen. A daily dose of  antioxidant cream with topical vitamin C is insurance against the sun-triggered damage known as photoaging.  Reference info on SkinHealth's Vital C 15%.
