Trios™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
Trios™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is an advanced skin care technology offering a number of aesthetic applications including:
Trios™ offers IPL therapy with minimal pain. Prior to treatment, your experienced practitioner will apply a cooling gel to further improve comfort. Many patients liken the sensation to that of a “rubber-band snap.”
Generally IPL therapy produces minimal side effects. Following Trios™ treatment, patients may experience a slight reddening of the skin (similar to a mild sunburn) which should subside within a few hours. Most patience will experience no additional side effects.
At G. Skin Therapy, we are proud to offer the following Trios™ IPL treatment options:
Trios™ Skin Rejuvenation
Trios™ safely and gently applies concentrated flashes of light that target sunspots, age spots, loose skin and wrinkles to encourage collagen production and promote restructuring of the skin. The deep penetration promotes a natural healing response that can plump skin, remove dead tissue and produce a smoother overall appearance. This process increases blood flow to the treatment area and shortens and contracts fibrils that induce collagen remodeling and promote stronger, healthier skin in the long-term.
Patients will notice a more balanced complexion immediately after the first treatment; with exponential improvement though a treatment course. An IPL skin rejuvenation treatment course generally consists of 4-6 treatments at 3-4 week intervals. Maintenance treatments may be performed as necessary once every 6 months.
Trios™ Acne Clearance
IPL Acne therapy permeates the facial tissue to destroy acne-causing bacteria and instantly slow the production of excess oil. IPL is one of the safest acne treatments available - proven to be extremely effective on moderate inflammatory acne.
Like Skin Rejuvenation treatments, Trios™ Acne Clearance therapy can also promote the growth of healthy new cells - smoothing the surface of skin while helping to prevent future breakouts.
An acne treatment course generally consists of 8-12 treatments (depending on the severity of the symptoms and the patient's progress) at up to 2 treatments per week. Acne treatments show a significant reduction in breakouts and improved skin condition after 2-4 treatments.
Trios™ Hair Removal
Trios™ Hair Removal provides permanent hair removal or reduction and is suitable for the face or body. With IPL Hair Removal treatments, the targeted light travels harmlessly through the skin until it strikes the hair shaft or the root of the hair. As the light is converted to heat energy, the hair shaft and root are vaporized.
Because the hair producing follicle is also damaged, IPL therapy can inhibit further growth and is thus considered a permanent hair removal technique.
A treatment course of IPL Hair Removal generally consists of 6-10 treatments at 4-6 week intervals. After the third or fourth treatment session, intervals may be extended to once every 2-3 months, depending on rate of hair re-growth. Maintenance treatments may be recommended once every 6 months.
Initial consultation may be required to determine if IPL therapy is appropriate for your skin type. If you have any questions about IPL therapy or the Trios™ system, please contact us.
