Are you looking for flawless clear skin?  Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) rejuvenates the skin by lightening/removing  hyperpigmentation as well as small veins and redness.  This treatment is very similar to a lasers but uses a larger beam for wider area coverage, and quicker more comfortable treatments.  If you're not sure where to start with a skin care routine this is the perfect treatment to clear the skin before doing monthly maintenance treatments or more aggressive procedures.

If you're looking to lighten sunspots, freckles,  red facial veins or even overall redness licensed esthetician, Keri Eichhorn, at Summit Plastic Surgery & MedSpa  can help with the IPL photorejuvenation.  This process can take several treatments to see the best results. 

To reduce the hyperpigmentation the light is absorbed by the pigment which in turn heats the pigment and breaks it apart- after a few days the pigment will naturally shed from the skin revealing the wonderful results.  To reduce the small veins or redness the light heats the small capillaries that cause the veins and rosacea to shrink the capillaries to help them fade away.

Since this treatment is drawn to the pigment in the skin there can be no real or artificial color to the skin.  Tanning, in a tanning bed or out side, spray tans or even self tanning creams are completely prohibited during the coarse of the treatments to prevent lightening the skins natural pigment.
