HOW DOES IPL PHOTOFACIAL WORK?

The IPL PhotoFacial targets a broad spectrum of light to the lower layers of the skin to produce new collagen and connective tissue, which better supports the upper skin layer and, as a result, smoothes the skin's surface. The PhotoFacial also treats vascular lesions and symptoms of rosacea, with typically beautiful results!*

IPL Treatment Procedure

IPL PhotoFacial treatments usually take less than thirty minutes. Most patients will have a series of five to eight treatments, and each treatment is scheduled about three weeks apart. PhotoFacials have low levels of discomfort, so topical anesthesia is not required, but can be used if that's a patient's preference. A handpiece is placed over the treatment area and delivers the light energy, which might feel slightly like a rubber band snapping against your skin.

Following the treatment, discomfort is typically mild to nonexistent.* Immediately after treatment, the skin may feel warm and appear pink (easily covered with make up). Most patients can return to work immediately.* Because IPL PhotoFacials are non-ablative treatments, the downtime is greatly reduced.* (Non-ablative lasers do not remove layers of skin, but instead penetrate through the skin in an attempt to stimulate collagen growth from underneath the surface of the skin).*

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM IPL PHOTOFACIAL TREATMENT?

Because IPL PhotoFacials are performed in a series, you will see more improvement after each treatment.* After the first session, skin will typically look and feel smoother and will have a more even skin tone.* Over time, sunspots can fade, pore size is reduced and fine lines and wrinkles smooth out.* Rosacea patients will typically see a progressive improvement, as well, as redness is reduced, and a smoother, clearer complexion emerges.*
