IPL™ PhotoFacial uses precise amounts of visible light (IPL is ‘intense pulsed light’) to effectively treat facial redness and improve sun-damaged skin. The light energy is absorbed by the damaged tissue resulting in a stimulation of the production of collagen. Through this stimulation of collagen the appearance of aging skin is softened, fine lines and wrinkles are improved, dark pigmentation and age spots fade, there is a reduction in pore size.
IPL PhotoFacial can also be used to treat rosacea. The redness and flushing of rosacea can be reduced 80 to 90 percent.
IPL PhotoFacial can treat the face, neck or chest. Depending on the area treated, for optimal results most patients receive four treatments. Following your first treatment, your skin will feel smoother and softer, with a more even skin tone. Improvements are gradual and become more visible after each treatment.
Transforming your skin is easy with the IPL photofacial. This non-invasive treatment is ideal for skin care concerns ranging from redness and rosacea to broken capillaries to age spots, sun spots, discoloration and hyperpigmentation.
The IPL photofacial is performed with a non-ablative laser that has been carefully calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin - redness, darker discolored patches or dark spots.
The IPL photofacial process causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves minimal discomfort, feeling like the mild snapping of rubber bands against the skin's surface.
When can I expect to see results?
Gradual and cumulative improvement of skin tone is typically achieved in 6 sessions. The total number of sessions required will depend on your skin's condition.
Does it hurt?
Cooling of the skin surface ensures additional safety and comfort during treatment. Redness and swelling may occur immediately after, but it will subside shortly after.
