Beautiful, flawless skin can be yours
Simple light treatments that stimulate collagen production, reduce pigments, shrink blood vessels, eliminate unwanted hair, and remove age and sunspots.
Biltmore Restorative Medicine uses a MedPulse IPL Physician-grade device. Using IPL, the light bypasses the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) and gently heats the cells in the deeper layer of skin (dermis). These cells, called fibroblasts, start to produce more collagen, which improves texture and fine wrinkles.
Treatments usually take 30-90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
IPL can also be used for Hair Removal. For dark hair, IPL treatments can be used to reduce hair growth over the course of time, and are administered every 4-6 weeks to match hair growth cycles. We offer single sessions and packages.
There may be mild discomfort, like a rubber band snapping, during the treatment that patients tolerate extremely well. Any discomfort is far less than that with waxing.
You can expect to see some redness, darkening of brown spots, and slight swelling which will resolve in several hours to one week. Makeup can be immediately applied, if desired. A gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing, age spots, and fine lines will be more visible after each treatment.
With a full series of 4-8 treatments, most people will see results over 3-4 months, with results lasting up to 12 months. Some cases of severe redness or brown spots require more treatments. We currently recommend a treatment every 6-12 months.
