Laser Combo Used Effectively Against Photoaging, Sun Damage And Brown Spots

January 21st, 2015

Elite MedSpa now offers a laser combo package for aged skin.

“We use a combination of two different lasers to treat sun damage and photoaging,” says Sheila Calderon, M.D., “IPL laser and the Varilite Scanlite.”

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is an FDA-cleared and patented technology that decreases the effects of hyperpigmentation. It basically works by introducing high intensity pulses of light (not laser light) to the deep layers of the skin.

Initial effects include the removal of dead and flaking skin cells as well as the production of fresh, young skin cells and collagen. Light brown spots as well as age spots (which have been previously difficult to resolve) respond very well to this treatment. Basically, the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells brings about the amazing changes.

The Varilite Scanlite works similarly to IPL but through a different mechanism. It separates the melanin that has gathered together to create brown spots and basically causes it to disperse into the surrounding skin. The result is one uniform shade of skin color that looks more even and attractive.

“In my opinion, no two technologies provide the long-term improvement that IPL and Varilite Scanlite do,” says Dr. Calderon. “With this comprehensive program, you can see gradual improvements of brown spots and age spots as well as redness, flushing and broken capillaries. One can return to work and resume normal activities the same day you receive these treatments.”
