IPL (intense pulsed light) 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 treats photo-aged skin, removes pigmented lesions, and diminishes redness caused by broken capillaries. IPL helps restore a more youthful appearance, leaving skin clear and healthy looking without any downtime.
Just before an IPL treatment, your practitioner will provide you with protective eyewear and apply gel to the areas to be treated. During the treatment, the cool, glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to the skin. A pulse of light is then delivered to the skin surface. Many clients describe the feeling as a mild, brief pinching sensation.
Immediately following an IPL treatment, you may have some slight reddening of the skin which typically subsides within a couple of hours. Sun damage spots and age spots temporarily darken, and over the course of 1-3 weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade, leaving you with a clear complexion.
Many clients see significant improvement within the first few treatments. IPL photofacial provides gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results. You will notice a reduction in redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. Your skin will look healthier as sun damage, fine lines, pore size, and irregular pigmentation is minimized. Results from an IPL treatment series typically last for a year or longer.
IPL PhotoFacial utilizes a non-laser medical device that delivers a series of gentle pulses of visible light onto the surface of your skin. In a series of treatments, the pulses of light target the skin to effectively eliminate redness, broken capillaries, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), sun damage, large pores, fine lines, and rosacea conditions. Some clients choose to have chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatments in conjunction with IPL treatments to enhance results.
