Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

Nouvé Med Spa

What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light is a cutting-edge treatment that targets multiple trouble stops at once. Light energy is delivered through your skin’s surface to stimulate new collagen production and skin renewal from within.

Each treatment takes 15-30 minutes. You may need 2-5 sessions once per month until you’ve reached your desired look, followed by maintenance sessions that are less frequent.

IPL can help reduce a variety of skin issues, including:

  • Age spots
  • Blotchiness
  • Capillaries
  • Freckles
  • Redness
  • Rosacea: May be reduced by up to 90%

The most common side effect of IPL is mild discomfort. Your skin may appear flushed and darker areas of your skin may be more visible at first. These effects will fade within a few days before new skin gradually resurfaces and unwanted pigmentation breaks apart.

What is ThreeForMe™?

ThreeForMe can help solve all of your skin concerns, including brown spots, facial veins, sun damage, and wrinkles at once. During the 30-minute session, Dr. Wielenga uses the Cynosure® ICON™ laser to treat discoloration and unwanted facial veins. Then he uses a microbeam laser to gently renew your skin. This unique technology stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to more firm and youthful skin structure.

Topical numbing cream and cool gel packs help minimize discomfort during your treatment. Afterward, you may experience redness and swelling which should resolve in within a few days. You’ll see continued improvements in your skin within 1-3 treatments.

What is Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing?

For fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing, Dr. Wielenga uses Cynosure ICON laser technology to reverse the appearance of skin irregularities, including acne and surgical scars, fine lines, and stretch marks. It focuses specifically on your desired problem areas and stimulates collagen production and cell rejuvenation below the surface.

How can chemical peels help?

Chemical peels remove dead skin cells to restore a youthful glow through intensive exfoliation. The up to 30-minute treatment not only removes layers of the skin but induces collagen formation, and helps treat or reduce acne, acne scars, fine lines, greasy skin, hyperpigmentation and melasma.

Numerous types of chemical peels are available, ranging from superficial to deep. Through an examination of your skin and consideration of your age, health, and treatment goals, Dr. Wielenga will help determine your ideal option.
