What is IPL Photofacial?
Intense Pulsed Light, commonly known as IPL, delivers high intensity computer controlled pulses of light that penetrate the skin and heat the sub-surface layers. The heating action damages or destroys problem conditions like excess pigment and unwanted spider veins, while stimulating healthy, new collagen. A series of IPL Photofacial treatments can offer the benefits of a medium depth laser resurfacing or chemical peel without blisters, burns or long recovery time.
Who Are the Best Candidates for IPL Photofacial?
These treatments are best for those who have:
Red, flushed faces (This can be reduced by 80 to 90 percent!)
What Are Treatments Like from IPL Photofacial?
Generally, 6 treatments are recommended at 3 to 4 week intervals. Each full-face treatment takes about 45 minutes. Many patients describe the sensation to be like the snap of a rubber band on the skin. There is no discomfort following the treatment. The depth and degree of heat is highly controlled, so there are few risks and you may resume most normal activities right after an IPL photofacial treatment. Your skin may appear flushed, and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots can also appear darker and you may experience some slight swelling, but all these changes fade over a period of hours to a few days.
