Intense Pulse Light Therapy to rejuvenate skin and correct hyperpigmentation and other surface imperfections

Why Photorejuvenation?

A fast, yet gentle treatment that visibly improves:

  • Pigmentation
  • Age/sun spots
  • Broken capillaries and
  • Overall skin appearance by stimulating collagen and elastic fiber production.

What is it?

The Stellar M22™ Photorejuvenation treatment enables us to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin conditions such as age and sun spots, freckles, birthmarks, rosacea, and broken capillaries.

Our unique IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology gently and effectively eliminates spots, discolorations, and unwanted blood vessels.

Is It right for me?

Stellar M22 treatments are not suitable for everyone and may carry some risks. Photorejuvenation is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling, scaring or a change of pigmentation. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.

What should I expect?

When will I see results?

The Stellar M22™ Photorejuvenation treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots can be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments. Typically 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concems.

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings.

The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day. Typically your physician should advise you to stay out of direct sun for a few weeks following the treatment and to apply sunscreen.

How does it work?

Photorejuvenation technology

The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. Stellar M22 IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) enables your clinician to customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results, with maximum safety. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner.

The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.

The treatment

To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concept, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a wann or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
