What is IPL Photofacial or IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
A photofacial is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL™ photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below to constrict removing age spots, red spots, and other pigmentary anomalies. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that may last at most for 2-3 days. Benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment as the skin is transformed into a smoother and more even look.
Is a Photofacial Right for Me?
A photofacial is beneficial if you have any age spots, or reddish-brown spots on the skin. These types of pigment spots are often seen with aging, sun-exposure, and with smoking. The procedure requires a free consultation often with a test spot followed by a 30-minute treatment a few days later. The procedure has no downtime making it convenient even with a busy schedule.
A photofacial can also improve skin texture, eliminating discolorations, reduce pore size, and minimize wrinkles.
How does IPL Work?
During IPL™ photorejuvenation treatment, high energy light waves are used to reduce or eliminate many common effects of aging, including facial wrinkles and skin discolorations. IPL™ light also encourages the production of collagen, a natural protein that fills in wrinkles, making the skin smooth and supple. With each treatment, the results of IPL™ photorejuvenation become more pronounced. Five full-face IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial sessions spaced three weeks apart are normally required for optimal results.
