IPL Photofacial is a popular treatment for patients who desire younger, smoother, healthier-looking skin. IPL rejuvenates the skin even after the first treatment!
Specific wavelengths used in IPL target color-causing atoms within the skin, effectively diminishing discoloration due to age spots, sun damage, redness, and benign brown pigments. IPL can also be used for wrinkles and some acne scars.
IPL is ideal for the face, neck, cheeks, and hands, but can be used on other areas to remove signs of skin damage. IPL also stimulates the production of collagen — so, not only does it remove troublesome pigmentation of the skin, it works to reveal a more youthful glow!
Other benefits of IPL include
- Works to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin
- Noninvasive treatment
- Noticeable results after just one treatment
- Minimal downtime
- Permanent results
- Can be used with other superficial skin treatments
Although most patients can expect noticeable results after just one treatment, four to five treatments may be required to eliminate some troublesome spots. Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes and is mild enough to allow you to return to normal activities immediately after. Patients who undergo IPL therapy are advised to wear sunscreen on a daily basis.
After your IPL treatment, you may notice some slight discoloration immediately following treatment. This is a normal result and will fade, eventually flaking off, over the next two to three weeks.
