IPL & Photofacial Treatable Skin Conditions

Erythema of Rosacea

Erythema of rosacea is an inflammatory redness of the skin. Rosacea symptoms include facial redness across the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead, visibly dilated blood vessels and/or red inflammatory papules and pustules. Symptoms of rosacea develop gradually as mild episodes of facial blushing or flushing which, over time, may lead to a permanently red face.

Telangiectasia

Small dilated, or broken segments of a blood vessel visible through the epidermis, including small terminal segments or clustered patterns known as “spider telangiectasia".

Facial Telangiectasia

Small red focal lesions on the face, due to dilated blood vessels having a tortuous appearance. Commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks and chin.

Truncal Telangiectasia

Small enlarged blood vessels near the surface of the skin, usually they measure only a few millimeters. They can develop anywhere on the body. They may be composed of abnormal aggregations of arterioles, capillaries, or venules.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin, usually when excess melanin forms deposits in the skin. Often the hyperpigmentation is in patches of lentigines or sun-induced freckles.

Melasma

Melasma is a form of diffuse, symmetrical hyperpigmentation on the face that appears most often as a result of hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy or from birth control pills.

Poikiloderma

A variegated hyperpigmentation and telangiectasia of the skin followed by atrophy.

Telangiectasias/ Age Spots (Mild)

Telangiectasias are small dilated or broken segments of a blood vessel visible through the epidermis. Age spots include lentigines (small round dark macules, frequently sun related), ephelides (freckles) and hyperpigmented patches. These conditions may be the result of skin aging, and/or solar or environmental effects.

Telangiectasias/Age Spots (Severe)

The above described conditions to a more severe degree.  

Telangiectasias/ Age Spots (NonFacial)

The above described conditions on the neck, chest and hands, arms or other non-facial areas.
