The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial is a non-surgical treatment that improves the skin tone and texture of the skin. The IPL is much like a laser but produces a broad spectrum of light instead of only one wavelength. IPL energy includes all of the light wavelengths that are optimal for removing a variety of discolored skin lesions (brown spots, age spots, freckling). The IPL also stimulates collagen production to smooth skin and reduce pore size. In addition to the face, the neck, arms, legs and upper chest areas can also be treated.
IPL PhotoFacial treatments are gentle, with minimal discomfort. There is no “downtime’ after treatment, only temporary redness that fades within hours. Patients receiving PhotoFacial treatments do not need to take any time off from their usual activities. Improvement of age spots and dilated blood vessels can be seen after only one treatment, and skin texture progressively improves with additional treatments. PhotoFacials are one of the most effective treatments for facial redness due to rosacea. Your skin care specialist may recommend a series of 3 or 5 treatments scheduled 2 to 3 weeks apart.
