Background: Rhodamine-intense pulsed light (r-IPL) is a noncoherent, noncollimated, polychromatic light energy optimized for a double-peak wavelength emission, ranging between 550-680 and 850-1200 nm. Traditional IPL works within visible and infrared spectra, targeting hemoglobin and melanin, are effective to treat rosacea and pigmentary disorders. r-IPL, a new technology in dermatology, emits high-intensity light with a wavelength peak similar to the one of the pulsed dye lasers, showing a good safety and efficacy profile in nonablative photorejuvenation. Objective: Assess efficacy and safety of r-IPL on photodamaged facial skin showing hyperpigmentation, telangiectasias, fine lines, and textural changes. Methods: Five sessions of r-IPL treatment (fluence ranged between 13.5 and 14 J/cm2) have been performed on one 75-year-old lady affected by facial photodamaged skin. Efficacy of treatment was evaluated using the Fitzpatrick Elastosis and Wrinkles Scale (FEWS) and the Global Aesthetic Improvement (GAI) Scale assessed by an investigator, compared with baseline. Treatment safety and tolerance were also evaluated using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS). Results: Photographic and multispectral evaluation demonstrated relevant improvement (vascular, pigment, and texture) of photodamaged facial skin. One month after the last treatment, significant improvement in facial wrinkle and texture was noted. FEWS scores decreased significantly from 7 to 2. According to the GAI scale, the patient had an improvement in skin texture. Immediate response included mild-to-moderate erythema and only trace-mild edema in the treatment area. Pain during the treatment was minimal with a mean VAS pain score of 3/10. No other adverse events were reported. No post-treatment downtime was recorded. Conclusions: r-IPL may represent a valid therapeutic approach in noninvasive photorejuvenation.
