Get natural results and no downtime with Shaft Medical's new Prolite IPL skin rejuvenation.

Shaft Medical San Diego, the area’s leading aesthetic medicine practice providing the full range of advanced cosmetic procedures, now offers the FDA-approved Prolite IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) system for skin rejuvenation, reduction of skin pigmentation irregularities, elimination of spider veins and capillaries and permanent hair removal.

The Prolite IPL system uses interchangeable filters which safely deliver light that is absorbed by different structures in the skin. Different colored filters are used to produce various colors of light depending on which skin conditions are being treated, such as blemishes, acne, rosacea, facial blood vessels and spider veins. The Prolite IPL system can also be used for permanent hair removal.

Over time, natural skin aging and exposure to UV radiation make superficial blood vessels visible and causes the skin to produce pigmentation irregularities. ProLite IPL uses specific filters that deliver a series of gentle light pulses to the skin, targeting melanin and hemoglobin. The pulses can fire every two seconds allowing for large areas to be treated such as the entire face, neck and décolleté, hands, shoulders, and back.

Prolite II IPL can be used to treat conditions such as facial spider veins, flushing and redness, rosacea, age and liver spots and pigmented lesions. Treatment of these conditions also results in overall improvement in skin texture and tone. The best candidates for the IPL treatments are those who suffer from rosacea and experiences flushing and redness of the skin and people with sun damage or age spots who desire a healthier, more youthful appearance. In general, anyone with sun damage, pigment irregularities, or a dull complexion may benefit from Prolite IPL treatment. During a consultation at Shaft Medical, the patient's skin will be evaluated and recommendations as to the best treatment regimen will be made.

Prolite IPL treatments are virtually painless. Patients may experience a very mild amount of discomfort and immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, however, the redness will subside within a few hours. Also, brown spots generally will appear darker after treatment, but will start to flake off within a few days. Patients can expect a gradual decrease in the visibility of their skin's imperfections as the Prolite treatments progress. They will see smoother and more uniform skin, smaller pore size and fading of sun spots. Effects of rosacea will show especially significant improvement over time.

Treatments are typically provided in a series of sessions at 2-3 week intervals. To maintain long-lasting improvement, follow-up care may include maintenance sessions every 6-12 months. There is little to no downtime involved with Prolite IPL treatments, therefore, normal activity can resume immediately. This system is a great fit for people who don't want or have to take time off to heal from more invasive cosmetic treatments such as laser resurfacing or deep chemical peels.
