As a result of sun exposure, lifestyle choices and natural aging process, our collagen depletes, and the skin becomes thinner. As a result, sunspots, age spots, spider veins, rosacea, and other types of skin discoloration begin to appear.
IPL, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy or the photo facial, uses cutting edge technology to produce younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even in tone and texture.
What is IPL Photofacial?
The IPL Photofacial treatment rejuvenates the skin by using intense pulsed light to target areas of concern. IPL is a non-invasive treatment that can reverse aging and improve the color, texture, and over-all appearance of the skin.
The use of intense pulsed light with various wavelengths can stimulate collagen production in the skin and improve blood vessels activity. When appropriately applied, the results of IPL Photofacials are long-lasting and enhance the skin’s appearance treating wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, redness, sun damage, and rough texture.
IPL Photofacials have minimal discomfort; some patients experience slight tingling or warmth during their sessions. There is minimal downtime, allowing patients to continue with their normal activities after each treatment. The most common side effect associated with IPL is redness in the treated area, which usually subsides within 48 hours of the procedure.
