IPL Photofacial is an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably improve your skin’s texture, tone and color. Through a non-invasive method of photo-rejuvenation, IPL Photofacial treats photo-aged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries. IPL Photofacial helps restore a more youthful appearance, leaving skin clearer and healthy looking without any downtime.
In a series of treatments, pulses of visible light target the surface of your skin to effectively eliminate redness, broken capillaries, brown spots, sun damage, large pores, fine lines, and rosacea and melasma conditions. Upon assessing the degree of skin damage, specific settings are selected by our certified technician to customize IPL Photofacial treatment for best results. Some patients opt for chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatments in conjunction with IPL Photofacial treatments to enhance results.
Virtually any part of your body with uneven skin tone, diffuse redness, or sun and age spots can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders and arms are the most popular areas for IPL Photofacial treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Discrete brown spots, excessively ruddy complexions and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to IPL Photofacial treatment as well.
Upon determining an IPL PhotoFacial treatment plan appropriate for the skin conditions being treated, our laser technician will provide you with protective eyewear and apply a cold gel to the areas to be treated. During treatment, our laser technician gently applies the smooth, glass surface of the IPL hand piece to the skin, which feels cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered to the skin surface you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
On average, 4 to 6 IPL Photofacial treatments are recommended, scheduled at four-week intervals.
Immediately following an IPL Photofacial treatment, you may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin which typically subsides within a couple of hours. Signs of sun damage and age spots temporarily darken but over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off and your mottled complexion will clear.
Many patients see significant improvement within two to three weeks of your IPL Photofacial treatment. Your complexion will be clearer and younger looking. IPL Photofacial provides gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results. You will notice a reduction in redness, flushing and dilated capillaries and your skin will look healthier as sun damage, fine lines, pore size, freckling and irregular pigmentation is minimized. Results from a full series of IPL Photofacial treatments usually last for a year or more.
Over time new spots may appear if there is sufficient sun exposure; these too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and excessive redness.
IPL Photofacial treatments are recognized for a high measure of patient satisfaction. Patients are very pleased with treatment results because the process treats the full face, neck, chest or hands, rather than addressing a single isolated area or imperfection.
No Accutane use for 6 months prior to treatment.
The treatment area must be free of any open sores, lesions or skin infections. For treatment of pigmented skin lesions, you should consult a specialist if there is a family or personal history of skin cancer or if you have these concerns.
